Which version of Tamron 17-50?

Hello all,

I have used a Canon 50mm 1.8 fairly now for a long time and am now seriously considering buying a wider angle and chose the Tamron 17.50 f/2.8 as I'm on a budget.

There are different versions of this lens. Which one should I go for?

Is the IS (VC in Tamron's case) really important. With the short focal length, I'm fairly capable of steady shots handheld. All I'm worried about are the optics and image quality. Which version of the lens produces the best images? And is lighter on the pocket

Also another question: I have a Canon 1d MkII. Will this lens work on this camera?

Thanks for the advice in advance

Its your ATTITUDE, not your APTITUDE that decides your ALTITUDE
