I've seen a number of good reviews of the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM.

It's reasonably priced and seems like a good replacement for the Canon 18-55mm STM on my new Canon 80D.

Does anyone have any comments based on personal experience?

I did own one that was acquired when I first got my 60D (2011?). It was a great lens but when I also acquired an 80D a few years ago, I moved to the 17-70 ART with the dock so I could tweak the lens to match both bodies. Although not as fast I can use a bit higher ISO to make up the difference when needed and I got a bit more reach which I find useful.

I have to say that Adorama has a rather attractive price on the 17-50. See https://www.adorama.co​m/sg1750eosk.html (external link)

Amazon has it for, I believe, $309 or thereabouts.

Good catch, $306, see https://www.amazon.com …ard-Digital/dp/B003A6H27K (external link). Don’t buy the extra warranty because, as you may know, the Sigma warranty for non-gray market lenses in 4 years.

I will probably be buying one, but not until after Christmas.

Thanks.

I ordered this lens this morning and should have it tomorrow or Monday, in more than enough time for my trip to Chiraq.

I got the lens yesterday. It looks good, but it was too cold out and I was too sick to do much more than make sure it autofocused and captured an image.

I've had mine for a few years, decent lens/sharpness just average.OK for a lower megapixel camera I wouldn't use it on the new 32mp camera's.

Here's a sample from my trip to Chiraq. I'm still learning the camera AND the lens.

I don't have my normal post tools on my laptop, just the Canon software and Irfan View:
