Default Tamron 17-50 (non vc) VS sigma 17-17 OS

I have a mint Tamron, and it works and performs excellent on my 50D. I just find it a little short at times. I see used Sigma's around for close to what I could sell my Tamron, maybe I have to throw in a few $$. Do you think the extra reach and (OS) is worth the upgrade, will IQ be the same?

Edit-I mean the Sigma 17-70 OS

I know how you feel Mark.

I did read your post and I have really enjoyed my 17-50but have never tried the 17-70. I think I would love to get something like a 24-105 someday.

i have the 24-105 and love it. not as wide as the 17 but wide enough for me and i like the reach. little pricy but worth it to me.

Depends on what you shot. Can you live without having F2.8 at the long end?

"Seems like very little activity anymore, guess will have to look elsewhere for help..."

I know the feeling. This forum seems dead.
