thanks for the reply.

high ISO, slow shutter speed, and F2.8 because it's under the low light situation. i try my best to balance the brightness of the images.
yes, i dint use any flash.

however, i tried few shots again this evening, and this is the outcome:

24mm, 1/100, iso100. F2.8

24mm, 1/1000, iso100, F4

17mm, 1/20, iso400, f2.8

and oh, i dint blame the lens, i blame myself for duno how to perform the lens :)

its understandable of the situation you were in ( hand held low light ) but that is not the ideal situation to test lens sharpness. the images for what theyre worth are perfectly fine.
in your new post i would not use f2.8 for a landscape shot unless you want to isolate something like a persons face for a portrait. i would have upped the ISO to 400 and gone f8. see what shutter speed you get. if its acceptable to hand hold then see what you think of that.
the shot of the flower is looking pretty clean and you even got the bee in flight :)
the food shot looks ok but with a shutter speed of 1/20 i would recommend using a tripod. hand holding at those speeds is bound to risk getting blurry images

Has anyone compared this lens to the Tamron 17-50? I'm extremely frustrated in deciding if this one is worth the extra cash. I do want the best I can get for what I can afford.

nice capture!!
how do you get everything in focus and sharp at f 2.8?
If i had tried, I would have got only one subject in focus and rest blurred out.

shoot closer to the 17mm side of the focal length. The depth is less compressed.

do you mean the VC version of this lens? If so you should first look at the reasons you may want to have VC? At this focal length i dont really see a need for it.

I've found that I need it actually.
For example when you want to shoot landscapes in the magic hour.
You might set an aperture of f16 which obviously slows down your shutter speed. On top of that I often have a CPF on the lens which slows it down by another two stops.
The obvious answer is to mount the camera on a tripod but I don't always have it with me, especially when I'm on holiday.
Without the tripod your shutter speeds get dangerously low and camera shake becomes an issue.
If the VC version of this lens was as good as the non-VC I'd buy it in an instant.

there does seem to be a lot of statements around the net that the VC version is not as sharp. For landscapes i would say go tripod and ditch VC. If youre a serious land scaper thats the way you should do it. If you dont have your tripod with you then it means you were not serious on that particular day so you just need to up the ISO and live with the noise that you wont even see in small prints.
