Thoughts on the rumoured Tamron 17-35mm f/2.8-4 Di OSD

I was wondering what people's thoughts are on this upcoming lens. Personally I am very interested. I intend to go fullframe with Nikon and was thinking of getting either the lightweight 18-35/3.5-4.5, or the larger and heavier 16-35/4 VR, but the new Tamron might be a better compromise. Ideally I'd want 14 or 15mm wide-angle, but for that I'd have to get something like a big and heavy 15-30/2.8 that doesn't take filters. But 17mm is better than 18mm, and it's slightly faster. It has no VR like the 16-35, but it is smaller and lighter and probably cheaper as well.

Of course the performance is yet unknown. But I think I'll keep my eye on this one.
