Re: sigma 17-70 vs 16-50 kit comparison out there?

I have the Sigma only, so no comparison from me.

All I can say is that the Sigma is a very fine lens if you get a decent copy. Sigma Service over here is fast and good. They sometimes have issues with updates for newer Sony bodies.

I have to disagree for the weight. The Sony is heavier.

For a comparison look here:

The Sigma will be the best bang for your bucks.

If money is no problem it comes down to the specs, do you like to have a 1 mm wider end or more tele reach at F4?

Hope that helps a bit.
