Re: Is the Tamron 17-50 (non VC) somewhat overrated?

Hello to all. I own both the 17-50 VC and non VC versions of this lens, and to be truthful, so far I have not tried out the non VC version because it is for a Nikon mount, and I have been primarily a Cannon shooter for the last few years. Anyway IMHO the VC model that I have is slow to focus sometimes. I will say once again what I have said before, For what we pay for these camera lens, I feel we are at least owed better quality control.
