Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM

Review Date: Oct 13, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $590.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Great resolution and image quality, fast and accurate AF, OS effective
FTM would have been nice - but you don't use it often.

This is an excellent lens. If it had the Canon's 17-55 low light focusing accuracy this would be by far the best lens in this focal range. As it is however one has to choose between superior low light focusing abilities af the Canon vs the superior resolution capabilities and the better close-up focusing abilities of the Sigma. Given the price difference, it's a no brainer in my mind.

Highly recommended.
