I have the older one (2010) and it's a great walk around lens for me.
On the long end, on mine, it's just a tad soft, with vignetting, but I shoot
everything in raw, so it isn't too hard to bring out the vignetting.
On the short end, mine is pretty sharp with a little bit of barrel distortion,
again, easy to correct in pp.
I've recently purchased the tamron 70-300 and LOVE that one, and in my
sample, it's much cleaner on the long end. So right now, if I need a wide
shot, I toss on the 17-50 2.8 and the 70-300 for long stuff. If I'm in
a hurry at some event, I just leave the bag in the car trunk and use the
18-270.

You think I should change it to if you're too
busy to take photos, then you're too busy?
