Canon for the FTM. It's generally nicer to have FTM than not. Resale value is better as well.

In excellent condition:
Canon 17-55IS used is btw $800-900 (new $1100) or 20-30% loss
Sigma 17-50OS used is btw $500-$550 (new $670) or 20-25% loss

Where is the difference in resale value?

OK, thanks. So assuming the IQ is pretty much a wash for most, the only read difference is that the Canon has slightly more reach, full time manual and internal focus.

Sigma uses internal focus, so does Canon.

TS was talking about getting either lens at the same price. No matter how you cut it, the Sigma will sell for less if both were purchased at the same price.

When i had the Sigma 17-50mm 2.8 OS, i really liked it.

For indoor shots under florescent lighting, i used Grey card to get the WB just right, and WOW ! Love d it !

If same price then go for Canon, if Condition is excellent. otherwise, get the Sigma !

But that goes back to the not comparing apples to apples argument. Unlike any new lens bought from a reputable retailer, you don't get the opportunity to exchange a used lens if it is crap. That comes at a cost.
