I was mostly thinking about this back when the focus motor went out on my 17-55 right around the time that the 17-50 came out. I was pretty frustrated, but even though I bought the lens used, I was able to get mine fixed for free since I had a blank warranty and a receipt from within the year.
I would switch them out. The 17-50 has been chosen as the winner over the 17-55 many times. Mine is tack sharp. It's unbelievable. The Sigma may be softer in the corners but sharper in the middle.

Also it sounds like Pentax can't match what you want. I will be interested in seeing the 7D mark 2 or whatever it's going to be called. I hope Canon will up it's sensor performance like Sony has, instead of simply throwing in more megapixels.
