First got the Sigma 17-70, but sent it back:

It's not good for landscapes, corners are horribly soft from 17-28 mm at any aperture.

For landscape the new 18-140 seems much better choice, at least for me ( need to correct distortion, but camera can do it ) or u could get the 16-85 for 2x price

Interesting my copy of the 17-70 is so sharp across the field, even at 17mm, I sold my 16-85. The 16-85 is simply an overpriced slow zoom.

Which version do u have? C or the older one? What I heard is the new one is soft at wide and sharp at telephoto, but old was oposite:  sharp at wide but soft tele ( soft I mean off center )
