Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4 OS HSM C vs Canon 17-40mm f4 L USM

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone advice me which one should I buy, I will be using the lens for event photography, group and tight shots, and some landscape. We all know that Canon 'L' lens are superb in terms of quality, but the features / qualities of the new Sigma is pretty attractive, it is a new model, wide aperture up to f2.8, optically stabilized, and most of all, better price.

What about the widest focal point of both lenses, as per the specs, Canon is showing wider angle of view than Sigma at it's widest focal point, 17mm.

Cheers,

Pidong Marcos
