How does Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS perform? Can I see some pictures?

If you can help it, please post pictures without extreme post processing.

I'm going to buy either this or the Tamron equivalent, as I have some serious event photography to cover in the upcoming year. I just cannot afford the 17-55mm f/2.8 IS so as great as that lens is it's out of the question.

Right now I use the 15-85mm alongside a 35L, I shoot mostly in slow sync and so the 15-85mm isn't fast enough. The 35L is great but it's not a zoom.

I plan to use the lens in manual and Av ... If I'm not shooting in slow sync, I will be dragging the shutter to get at least -0.7 EV ambient mostly.

Now can I please see some pictures or hear how this lens performs? I own a 7D.
