There are some great shots in this thread. I'm looking to get a Sigma 17-50, but just not sure if I want/need the OS or I should just go with the regular version. Anybody care to share their suggestions?

Russo let me tell you like this do not hesitate to buy this lens the os IS what ever you wanna call it works miracles in low light and hand held use! This is the best zoom on a crop camera point blank period..
The canon 17-55 is over priced and is a dust magnet just buy it I have bought other lenses like the pancake 40mm and planning to buy more but I still love this lens and will never sale It I will have a review on YouTube soon... but take it from me don't get no other sigma this one is the truth.....

I used to have the Tamron 17-50. It did not have OS/IS. I think Tamron calls it VC. I really like this feature on this lens. I can take pics of still objects at crazy slow speeds and it's sharp. I like having it. I would not buy a zoom lens without it, now that I have used this feature. It makes the lens much more versatile, in my opinion. I would buy the lens over again, for sure. Give it a go. :)

I think since you've been using the 18-55 kit and this lens would be replacing it essentially, stick with what you know and get the OS version. I don't own this lens by my 2¥

Here's a couple from the concert tonight. I shot with my 85mm, but it left some harsh edges on the people in the photos. Extremely happy the way the 17-50 performed tonight!

Something going on with this one, or is the color done on purpose?

Just ordered this lense from 42Photo.com for 598 bucks with free shipping. Ordered Saturday and UPS tracking says it should be here Wednesday. After reading tons of reviews and seeing hundreds of pictures taken with this lens, I have to say I'm super-excited. I just hope I don't have the problems that alot of others have had with the autofocusing. (Especially since I'm hoping to use this lens for a wedding in just a couple of weeks)
I'll post some pictures soon hopefully.

:cry: I had to pay $672 for mine. I didn't see that price from 42photo.com... I bought mine from Abes of Maine because beach and another one with free overnight shipping was out of stock. I need this lens by 9:00AM thursday and yeah... Guess when my lens will arrive: Thursday, by end of day... D': And now it's in stock at those two other websites!

GAH, CAN NEVER WIN.
