Any more user comments on this lens?

I'm close to pulling the trigger but a small part of me wonders if its worth the extra money over the Tamron 17-50 (VC or Non-VC).

Thanks

This lens is better than the VC version of the Tamron.

okay...out of the box, Iso 640 on Canon 60D. f2.8 17mm.
i am going to try some night shots and then use it for a portrait session later this week. Resized.

I am going to also do some identical comparisons with 18-55 IS canon and sigma 50 1.4

okay..so getting used to the lens. Focusing is excellent.
This image was shot today:
Iso 250
50mm
f2.8
1/125sec
Shot in raw, neutral setting on a 60D with a silver reflector for fill light.
Only PP was slight increase in saturation and brightness and a slight vinette NO sharpening.

I am happy with the result, similar to my Sigma 1.4.

"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Just picked this lens up yesterday. First walk around with it.

IMAGE: http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f39/sethmo38/Randoms/IMG_9971.jpg

I like this lens so far. I also have the Sigma 30m f1.4, not sure how it compares to the 17-50 yet.
