That's pretty much where I'm at. The comparative photos I've seen are such that if doing a blind-test I would be hard pressed to say "this is the Canon".

But like I said, I'm most concerned with the AF performance of the lens. That was the big deal with the 17-50 f2.8 OS, and I've had zero problems with it. Speed is nice, but accuracy is important. As you said (and I do too!) get it at a place with a good return policy, try it twice if necessary and fall back on plan B (EF L lens or a nice macro!). Life could be worse!

I have a feeling it's a rockin' lens (same with the 50-150) and folks just get into the science and pixel peeping. My tough spot is I have one more lens to get before my annual Hawaiian trek, and I need to decide big zoom or macro!
