Just another guy who takes pics.

Why would you advise for the non VC-version? The price on the used market is about equal and I could not find any reviews so far rating one of the two above the other, but will google for it.

The VC version of the Tamron 17-50 f2.8 is soft outside the center area at f2.8, but the non-VC version is sharp across the frame at f2.8. Stop down to f4 and I doubt you could tell the difference between the two.

The Tamron 17-50 f2.8 is a sharp lens and a good choice.This was shot with a non-VC version.
