17-50 f/2.8 aps-c update

I long for a good 17-50 f/2.8 lens.  I tried the Tamron and Sigma - didn't care for either that much.  I think this is a very neglected lens.  Canon and Nikon seem to have checked out on aps-c lenses - only crappy superzoom updates.  I would like a 17-50 f/2.8 with stellar optics (like the recent 18-35 f/1.8 zoom from Sigma).  Why is this lens being neglected by all manufacturers.  It seems there is lots of pent up demand for something like this.
