Squeaking noise - getting a replacement

Excerpt: Seems well built and pics look good, but mine right out of the box made squeaking noise on AF. I'm returning the lense and debating whether I should give it another try with a replacement or look for something else.
Excerpt: For my APSC cameras I want a good wide angle lens for architecture, landscapes, building interiors, urban photography. This lens has a good FL range and is fairly fast. Test data I had seen suggested it was sharp and had other reasonably good optical characteristics.
Excerpt: This is my second sigma 17/50, and I am disappointed with the sharpness, the first one which I had problem with, the barrel getting loose was repaired and it did affected the sharpness, reason why I bought an other one, this new one is not any better??? I will trade for Canon lenses.
Pros: Great Stabilizer, Lightweight
Cons: Not sharp enough, Poor in Low Light, Weak Casing
Excerpt: Nice lens, easy to use and sharp, but not much more than the Sigma 18-250 mm f/3.5-6.3 I already own and use on a Canon 60D. I bought if for the larger aperture anticipating better IQ but found that a Fujifilm X30 28-112 mm with an f/2-2.8 lens that I bought later for travel use handled the larger...
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Smooth To Use
Excerpt: I purchased for indoor and outdoor use. F2.8 was the key, although the focal length was somewhat too short. I wish it could go up to 70 or 80mm. 50 mmm @ F2.8 was marginally better than my 18-200mm Nikor. It is also pretty heavy lens.
