Sigma has the 17-50 2.8 zoom on special for $399 (normally $669) so this is a big savings, worth checking out if you need a faster zoom in your kit

As a DC lens, I assume not. But someone who has one should be able to say whether it is usable as one or not.

Nope, this is an APS-C lens. Sigma does have a full frame equivalent (24-70mm F2.8).

Just for reference, when Sigma has 'DC' in the naming, it means APS-C designed. Any full frame capable lenses have 'DG' in the title.
