Which one do you prefer? If you have 18-135, 15 and 100 Macro.

Well I don't have any of the three lenses you're mentioning (although my copy of the 15mm f/4.0 is on the way), but I do own the Sigma HSM OS 17-50 f/2.8 and I can tell you it is optically speaking a fantastic lens, although EXIF have to be changed by hand for distortion correction to be correctly applied in Lightroom (using an automator script on Mac to do that at the moment).

Plus when you need high photographic productivity (lots of photos in a short time), nothing beats a fast zoom...
