There are Sigma rebates going on right now, but not on all lenses.

Ron,

I've had my Sigma 17-70 for a little over a month now (I purchased it when it was on sale for $420) and am really enjoying it. Really great build quality, good weight and solid, smooth zoom and focus rings, quiet and quick AF, pretty sharp, good bokeh and low light performance, and the decent macro ability is a great bonus for a walk-around lens.

Here's a recent shot with it:

I think the lens is still a great deal for $469. If the features listed are what you're looking for, I think it's a great buy. I'd say it is a stronger performer outside than it is inside. If you want inside shooting, the Sigma 17-50 2.8 is on rebate for $619 right now and it would probably be a better option for you. I debated pretty heavily between the two before I went for the 17-70.

I have the 17-70mm DC OS HSM lens for my Canon and Sigma DSLR. I like the lens a lot, it rarely ever comes off my Sigma and produces sharp images. I have a larger variety of lenses for my 7D, such as the 24-105mm L so the 17-70mm DC doesn't see as much time on that body as it does on the Sigma. Here are a few shots I took with the my SD15 and 17-70mm lens:
