Comparisons on the Sigma based on MTF charts

I didn't see the charts on the 17-55 f2.8 Nikon but I did some quickie comparisons of the Sigma 18-50 to some other wide lenses. Quite impressive.

Would you consider Sigma 18-50 f2.8? I have Nikon 17-55 f2.8 and
the kit lens as well. The kit lens is very, very good. It's just
that 17-55 is so much better - and bigger :-). I read Sigma 18-50
is a good performer and is under $500 at B&H.

But if it is a paying job, why don't you go for the real thing?

Best regards,
