Query on Estimated Street Price of Tamron (Canon mount) 17-50 F2.8, seeking advices

Is this lens worth getting vs the Canon 18-135 IS which Cathay Penisula ppl will dismantle from the 7D kit to sell at 680?

My budget is around 600 to 700. Heard the 17-50 is better in IQ and night indoor shots, wonder the street price, whether a worthwhile choice.

Thanks bro and sisters for your kind advices

Should be within ur budget if you are getting the tammy non-vc :)

go for it if u really need the fixed aperture (helps to a certain extent in lowlight shooting)
