Pros: Well made, excellent range, very good IQ, great price!
Cons:
Not a fan of the 72mm filter size.

Have owned various "walk-around" zooms, including the Canon 17-55 IS, 18-55, 24-105 and Sigma 17-50 OS (Canon and Nikon versions). Looking at the whole picture (IQ, weight, size, range, build quality and price) the 17-70 C beats them all. Highly recommended.

Pros: Lovely walk around lens, cheap and sharp. OS works a treat. A people lens.
Cons:
Too much distortion for stitching landscape panoramas. I vastly prefer the 18-35 for stitching, constrained light, and moire sharpness.
