Sigma 17-50 f2.8: Any Thoughts on Quality?


I'm looking to replace my Nikkor 16-85 with an f2.8 zoom, and I've tried the new Tamron 17-50, but am not sure I like it that well. I'm considering the Sigma 17-50 f2.8 and wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this lens. Anyone currently using it, or have used it in the past? If you did in the past, why do you no longer? Opinions on how it compares to the Tamron, the older Tamron without VC, and the Nikkor 17-55 would be much appreciated!
