An alternative to the EF-S 17-55

Hi.

The EF-S 17-55, though having good user reviews, is at a whopping $1000 price range which is way too much for me. Price is the deciding factor and I don't want to go over $700.

What lens, in the 17-xx f/2.8 range can you recommend?

I am eyeing the Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 OS or the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 VC. Which of these is better for a crop body?
Or do you have something else in mind?
