John, Axminster Keen Photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
F2.8 means you can do lots of shots indoors without the flash. Use auto ISA and keep an eye on the speed. If you need to use VC stabilisation you need to take longer over the shots but I have found it works well down to 1/25 on a stationary subject. 17 - 50 is the most useful range at parties or weddings or the local panto as long as you get in the front row. I have yet to test it on landscapes but expect good results.
Bad points:
Auto focus on my Canon 7D hunts if you go from close-up to distant in 1 step with this lens. I don't think its a fault rather Canon likes Canon but for 1/3rd the price I can live with that.
The zoom ring is not as smooth at my other lens but this is me being pick.y

Bad points:
...although, with VC it is a lot heavier. Also, with vc on it makes a noise...not instant/smooth. If had known of weight really wouldnt have got this lens.
