Good price/performance ratio, TCav's recommendation and the fact that
it has a 67mm filter thread made it irresistible. Most of my filters and
polarisers are 67mm.

I look forward to comparing it to my Canon 18-135 IS and the
18-55mm kit lens.

I will report my findings here if/when it turns up.

Thanks again.

I don't know about the OP, but you have convinced me. I ordered the
Tamron 17-50mm non-VC version today.
I think you'll like it. I've been using one for last 5 years.

After trying both Tamron & Sigma on the camera i went for Tamron considering my budget & nearabout same image quality.

I dint find it worth to spend around 200$ for OS & HSM on sigma.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

Good luck with the new lens. Let us know how it works for you.

It arrived today. First impressions are good. It seems nice and sharp.
Build quality is good. Apart from the noisy AF, I can't find any fault
with it. Light is very poor today. I will post a few pictures when the
cloud lifts.
