DXO Mark reviewed the new Sigma 17-70mm Contemporary

In Canon mount--the lens isn't yet available in stores for the other mounts.

And it looks very good:
DxOMark - Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM C Canon - The Above ?Standard? Zoom

Better than the previous versions (see the second set of comparisons):

Looks very promising! Hope it's priced reasonably; probably $499, but with periodic holiday discounts down to $450?

if the new A series of the Sigma 30/1.4 is anything like the Sigma 35/1.4, I think the new lens will be a real winner-- a silent-focusing prime lens that is less than 55mm, designed exclusively for APS-C, and a real fast one at that! just have to see when it will be offered in K-Mount; may not be until next year? and at what price? $499? seems like that's the going rate for these new Sigma APS-C lenses.
