I had the old version.  It was indeed felt very very sharp.

But it was very loud focusing, thus I hesitated to bring to some quiet indoor situations.  And it often missed focusing from time to time.  Sigma just feels more smooth...

For outdoors, the difference between 17-50s and 18-135 is there but not big. And 18-135 has a range advantage.  If you add color into the consideration, nothing can beat the Ltds.
