"Good" all around lens, but...

Summary: The Sigma 17-50 f2.8 is a great all around lens that I used on my Nikon D7100. But I did get a lot of lens flare when shooting into the setting sun for portraits. So if you don't like the flare you might want to look at a different lens.
Excerpt: I really just want to comment on my initial impressions after receiving this lens kit (lens, filter, cleaning kit) yesterday evening.The Tiffen filter fits great and appears to be clear enough for my tastes, but I have not had a chance to check its quality yet.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have had this lens about 3 weeks, and have shot about 500 photos with it, mostly of landscapes or indoors in low light. I have, over the past 3 years, used a Canon EF 17-40L f/4 and a Canon EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, a Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 (non-VC) and now this lens on a Canon T1i and 60D.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Summary: so far happy with this lens dxo rated higher than canons 17-40mm had it about 8 months but now there is something wrong with the auto focus it has been searching in and out I need to get it checked out.
Excerpt: I normally use a standard fixed focal length lens and have several. But this lens changed my thinking. For the bulk of my work this lens will cover it and increases my working speed. The lens is super sharp. The images are far better than a couple of Nikon lenses I have.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
