But after a little web browsing, I keep reading about the same lens without the VC and how it's supposed to be a much sharper lens.

So I have come to you, my dis friends in search for some opinions that actually matter. What would you do? Sacrifice the VC for a higher IQ? Opt for the stabilization? Go with a different manufacturer like Sigma?

Or just sell my camera and take up golf again?

Thanks guys. I have a little bit of time to make up my mind but it's starting to stress me out!

you read good things about the Tamron non-vc because it's sharper wide open (f2.8) than the other zooms
see www.photozone.de
or

But if I was buying an f2.8 zoom for a crop model and had a budget of $700 I would seriously look at the Sigma 17-50 2.8 HSM OS EX
