Re: Sigma 17-70 or Pentax 16-45?

I've been trying to make this same decision for a while now, and the consensus on the boards seems to be that the Sigma is just as good as the 16-45, plus you get the extra range. However, a few people have commented that the 1mm on the wide actually does make a big difference, so I suppose that could influence you.

There's been some mention of bad copies of Sigma lenses, although I haven't seen any reports of that on the 17-70. Anyone?
