I looked back at the beginning of this thread and noted that many of the people who posted how much they loved this lens no longer have one. Several of them replaced it with the Canon 17-55 IS. Can anyone comment on why they no longer have a copy of this lens?

I am guessing is because they could afford the 17-55, It's a great lens but if I could afford the other one. I would go with it. I love mine for its price and performance.

I guess all im saying is. If I could afford the other one I would no have this one.

I've used both, and while the 17-55 is useful for its IS and USM, I don't feel that it makes it worth the extra $400-500. Honestly, I can't tell any difference in IQ between the two lenses. I love my Tamron 17-50, the only reason I can foresee getting rid of it would be to go to a FF body.

20d. The editing is a bit "out there" for me versus my typical stuff. But I obviously oversaturated, up-ed the contrast, and used a little yellow bias with a decent vignette for the final result.

Here are a couple more of my car, with a more "general" editing style (all with the 17-50 to stay legal):

That's pretty much what I figured. It sounds like the 17-50 is a good lens and a good value, but if the $$ wasn't an issue, most/many people would buy the 17-55. I figured the users who "upgraded" to the 17-55 did so because they originally could only afford the Tamron but when they later had the money, the IS, USM and ?? convinced them to upgrade. That's exactly what I was considering doing as I am about to buy a 50D and need to get another lens so my wife can use my XTi while I am using my 24-105L on the 50D. By getting a lens in the 17-xx range, she can not only use it as a walk-around lens, but it'll give me something wider and faster than my 24-105 f/4L when I need it. With a body, the 17-55 would cost too much and I've been reading too many negatives about my first consideration, the 17-85 (plus it is too slow).
