Sigma 17-50 2.8 EX DC OS-Talk Me Out Of Buying It!

All right, I'm looking for a wider walk-about lens for a 40D. Currently have the 28-135, 50 1.4, 100 2.0. I have nothing wide. I've never opted for a 3rd party anything (not even lens hoods).

Am I making a mistake with this lens? Tell me why I should spurn this lens and spend the extra money on the Canon 17-55.

(And note, I'm not dogging the Canon lens, I just believe I will feel safer with my decision if I have considered the most brutally honest criticisms of the Sigma v. what the Canon has to offer.)

Thanks in advance for any advice you have to offer!
