Sigma 17-50 f2.8

I am visiting a nephew overseas in a few weeks time. He's asked me to buy him the Sigma 17-50 f2.8

Has anyone got one or used one? How is the sharpness , focussing speed and how does balance on the newer bodies (I think he has a K7, but plans to upgrade to K5 in the new year when he will be visiting us)

He will be using out for weddings.
K5iis and a couple of lenses.

It might be worth your while doing a search on the forum as I think this lens has been the subject of a few threads over the past year or so.
Best regards, John

Are you talking about the 17-50 f2.8 EX OS HSM (the new model)?

I have it on a K7.

The size/weight is similar to DA 16-50, sharpness and focusing are much much better than the 18-55 wr I had before, but I don't know if it is better or equal to DA 16-50. It seems to be an high level lens.

I have also a 3 years warranty on this lens. The price was 600 euro in a german store.
