Re: Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4 contemporary - Any further word?

I picked up a 17-70 Contemporary yesterday morning and took a few shots to mak sure it works.  Bought it becuse I wanted a little longer reach than my Canon 18-55, but it had to be a reasonabl cost.  Here's a post I made on the Canon SLR Lens Talk forum.  So far I like the lens.  Sharp enough, feels good on my T3, fast AF.
