Re: Sigma 17-50 f2.8

I ended up getting the Tamron of someone for a good price and so far like it very much, love the way it hadles flare, or lack thereof,
generally leaves the kit 18~55 lens behind!

Any idea how the Sigma compares to the Tamron equivalent?

I can't give you a comparison, but my Tamron 17-50 is my standard lens, seems well made, and is the sharpest lens I've ever owned. One friend wants to buy mine because his is not close to as sharp, even after a lot of tune-up.
