This is the non-VC version...
Now just waiting with anticipation at the f/2.8 ...............

Its going to be an exciting step up from the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6, I'm sure...

Tuesday can't come soon enough!!

I just got the VC model as the price has come down in the UK and is only £10 ($16) more than the non, I know it's not as sharp but the VC will come in handy in low light.

Enjoy your lens :)

I just sold a perfect copy of the Tamy 28-75 to get this lens. Where did you get yours? If I don't see any good deals during the weekend here, I will order my copy of the 17-50 on Monday..... yes, don't forget the $25 mail in rebate.

There are some incredible pics in the 17-50 thread. I think you'll be smiling from ear to ear for quite some time with this lens.

I've had mine for about two and a half years now and really am enjoying it. I do get focus-hunting issues in lower light situations, and the focus motor is a little loud, but the pictures that come out of it are great!

Hope you enjoy it!
