Best WR alternative to Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8?

For what its worth, I have the Sigma 17-50 2.8 and have used it numerous times with a rain hood. I had the same challenge you mention a few years back, but now while struggling a bit with that set-up, and I know that's not what many would do, It works just fine. I love this lens and I find the quality, price point, and speed to tilt the scales in its favor over other more costly and slower options just to get the WR. I've used it oh hikes in the Cascades and parks in AZ with no problems. Granted, its not used in a driving rain or dust event but with a bit of care it has met my needs.

Smaller bag for hikes

I'd offer you take a look at sling bags. I have had a Think Tank Photo TurnStyle 20 Sling Camera Bag V2.0 for about a year now and its great for short hikes. Can fit my KS-2 body with medium size lens, my Tamron 70-200 or Pentax 55-300 PLM, along with another lens such as Sigma 17-50. or 2-3 Limiteds. There is plenty of room for filters and my iPad, plus the best part about slings is you can swing them around easily while walking to change lens on the go. Have a traditional pack that I use by MindShift for 4-6 hr hikes but the slings were never on my radar till I tried one and I love it. Good luck!

If you are getting rid of those listed above, the Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC HSM (not the OS version) is a much better lens (its in the Current Zoom Lenses in this forum) . I replaced my Pentax zoom kit lenses in that range, very similar to what you are looking to get rid of, with this and it is an awesome upgrade. You can probably get a good copy for between $220 and $300 in the Marketplace or elsewhere.
