Re: problem with 50mm:

The depth of field would be the same although I suppose one could get someone to crunch the actual numbers comparing a 1.7 on a 1.5 crop factor versus a 1.8 on a 1.6 crop factor, etc. It really does come down to which part of the range you'd need most. Is the new 17-50 even available yet?

If it were me, I'm in a situation where my 28-105 isn't as good as it could be but I don't have anything wider, so I'd probably go to the 17-50 first - if it performs as well as the others. The 17-35 isn't constant aperture which is less an issue for me than the zoom range itself.
