Sigma 17-50 F2.8 OS. !!!!!!!

Is anybody using this lens with a Sigma mc-11 on an a6300-a6600?

I realize it is not Globzl Vision.

I have tried searching the forum, but the search feature seems pretty lame and I have found very little solid info. I have also tried Youtube, etc.

I had the Sigma 17-70C and sent it back because although it was very sharp in the center, the edges and corners at wider angles were unacceptable even stopping down. I have read that the 17-50 is much better from about f4.

If you own this combo, is the autofocus decent for stills? I don't care about video. Are the edges sharp at 17mm and f4?

In general, what are the pros and cons?

I had hoped to buy one on Cyber Monday, but the price hasn't changed for months!

Thanks
