I still have it (screwdriver) for four reasons:

1. It is the equal to or better than the Sigma 18-35 at f5.6 to f11 - where I usually use it.

2. The flare resistance is remarkable.

3. Small and light (by comparison).

4. The obvious - better range.

I agree, this lens was my workhorse while I shot DX, i moved to FX & now use the 28-75 both Tamrons are great performers. I am going to sell the 17-502.8 now only because I shoot FX...
