Every time I use this lens, I find myself wishing it had VC.

lay off the alcohol and you should be able to hand hold 17mm comfortably at 1/10 ;)

Just wanted to thank you guys. The quality of pictures in this thread pushed me towards the Non-vc version. I ordered it tonight and can't wait to start taking pictures with it when it arrives!

For those who recently bought this lens...can I ask why you would choose it over the Sigma 17-50 OS HSM which appears to be a superior lens? I can only assume it's because the Tamron is cheaper?

i bought used, paid 260 to my door for this lens , either way you go you will get a good lens, but your comparing 400 dollar lens to a 670 dollar lens, i would hope a 270 dollar price difference would result in a better lens (not true all the time). but really it is up to you

Reviews say better 17-50 image quality, sharpness, color. constant 2.8
17-85, more zoom, IS, ring usm (ftm focus). f4-5.6
go for the tamron if you want better image quality,
with the lenses you have i would recommend the 17-50 and have a gap from 50-70 range, but superior images.
i find i dont need IS and can hand hold an image down to around 1/15 and still come out sharp
