Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 EX OS any good on SD1?

I am still wondering a bit in regards to what wide angle zoom I should get. The 18-35mm seems to be a really stellar lens, but it is a rather big lens. Also, I do not really need the speed (f1.8).

I'd like to hear the option of some who have used the Sigma 17-50mm on the SD1 Merrill. For landscape, I am interested mainly in the range 20-30mm and f8. If the lens is reasonably sharp in this range and stopped down to this aperture even in the corners, then I think it could be a good lens for me.
