It's definitly the best lens to replace the kit 18-55 IMHO. I
didn't mention in my original post, I actually went through

Sigma 28-80 DG EX -> DA16-45 -> Sigma 17-70 (back focus) -> Sigma
24-70 DG EX -> DA16-45 -> Sigma 17-70

How would you know that a lens has back focus? I have heard of several cases of the 17-70 back focusing. That scares me a bit as I have to order online and not from a store to which I can go for an exchange.
