Does anybody have any insight on how these two compare?

Tamron AF 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di-II VC ASL IF Lens

vs.

Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Zoom Lens

I hear the Tamron comes quite close, and is much cheaper.

Thanks,

RK.

I have the Tamron 17-50 VC.
It's a great lens given the price. Very sharp.
The only issues are soft focus and the rings rotate the opposite direction than most traditional lenses.
Other than that it's a great lens.
