    Given the lens you have already, if the Canon 17-85 IS gets great reviews it's the one I would choose. That way you carry two totally different lenses with the least overlap and have a large focal range covered. Jmo though.

    backing up the Tamron here, my 17-50 which i got for 375 mint with the hoya thrown in is wicked sharp. As long as you dont need fast auto focus and dont mind a plastic lens (still sturdy though) id say Tamron.

    Have you looked at sigma's 17-70 2.8-4.0 OS HSM, great lens for the money.
    please don't hold back on the C&C, otherwise how can i learn.

    Although I have mostly name brand lenses (Nikon or Canon) I also have the same Tamron lens as scorpio and it's awesome.

    I'd say...if what people think is not at all important to you...there's no real reason to buy name brand lenses.
    3rd party lenses are MUCH cheaper and chances are that some company will offer a decent lens (again DO the research) at the focal length that you are looking for. Digital Photography Review Camera Lens and FM Reviews - (3rd party and major brands) and KenRockwell.com: Photography, Cameras and Taking Better Pictures Camerafilters (major brands) are just 3 of many places that review lenses

    Hope that helps - Marko
    Yeah, i agree with you.
