24-70mm OS HSM are rare, great lens with 81mm filter thread!; I am also interested in the 17-50mm OS HSM, would like to compare it to my DA* 16-50mm ( edge sharpness and wide open not that impressive,) there is a newer non OS version, maybe you can think about buying a brand new one?

I don't know if you'd be up for the shorter range of the Sigma 20-40 f/2.8. I have one that might be of interest, despite its short range.

Thanks, but I'm mapping up with a Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 lens, so really want the shorter lens to extend to 70mm.

I have the Sigma 24-70mm EX DG HSM IF lens:
It is a tiny bit soft at 70mm F2.8, but superb at all otherr combinations. AF even in low light is decisive. Bokeh can be a little "busy" if you don't select background carefully.

And it is a big lens. Better balance when using the DBG-4 grip.
