Re: Tamron 17-50 VS. ?

If you are going to spend that much on a lens, get the Sigma 17-50/2.8 instead.  It's sharper than the VC version and has much better focusing that doesn't hunt and is quiet and fast.  The Sigmas focus and zoom rings turn the same direction as canon lenses too so if you are planning on doing video with the lens it will be less confusing when you are manually focusing.
