Sigma 17-50 f2.8 still best (reasonable)fixed aperature zom lens for D7500?

Greetings. I had good success with the Sigma 17-50 F2.8 on my D7100. Shot landscapes, portraits, concerts, all kinds of stuff with it.

I soon will have a D7500 and need to replace my lens due to damage. Looking forward to the additional ISO reach when needed.

I was looking for a newer lens in this range. I need it to go down to 17mm and fixed at f2.8 at least and not be huge. I see Tamron has one out but although newer, seems the Sigma is still rated better after all these years. And Sigma is much less?

I wonder if Sigma is close to replacing it?

The Nikon 16-80 which many compare the sigma (a few threads here) is variable and won't work for me.

After a day of searching did I miss any zooms in this range of price and quality that would be a good match? I have a longer zoom when I occasionally need the reach so 50 is fine. 70 to 80 would be conveniant. Don't need or want an all in one zoom.

It is like nothing has changed since I researched like crazy and bought this lens for my D7100 years ago!

Thanks in advance for any guidance,


PS. Sorry, I could not edit subject typo.
