Somewhere around the 22mm range.

Wow that sucks, if the 2.8 would stick it out a bit longer i would be interested in the lens.

If you don't mind me asking, how are you finding it for 404? I'm seeing it listed as 449. I'm definitely pulling the trigger on this is it's 404 there.

When you add it to your cart, enter code "AALOYAL", and it knocks 10% off. With the free shipping, it comes out to $404.10

Just ordered this lens along with the 70-200f2.8L. Having two lenses cover 17-200 is going to be great as long as the 17-70 brings decent results!

Eh, I don't seem to miss it that much.

Breakdown looks like this:

f/2.8 @ 17mm-22mm
f/3.2 @ 23mm-28mm
f/3.5 @ 29mm-50mm
f/4 @ 51mm-70mm

f/3.5 @ 29mm-50mm
f/4 @ 51mm-70mm

So you only miss 2/3 a stop vs the 17/18-50mm f2.8's (f3.5 vs f2.8 at 50mm). That's not bad at all given the extra reach, OS, and close focusing.

Also, for portrait use, keep in mind 70mm at f4 and 50mm @ f2.8 give roughly the same BG blur with the same framing (depends on a few variables, but close enough).

That is what I have except the f/4 insteadof the f/2.8. It is a great combo.

Same here! I have been looking at the 17-50 Tammy but this was too good a deal to pass up. :D

Awesome, glad to hear you like it! Making me wish I'd spent for the super rush shipping :(
