Quote:I think they're going to update their 17-50 crop lens sometime soon, because it's mechanically outdated yet (still) very popular. Remember they did update the 90/2.8 VC and 150-600 even though these were already modern. Whether they are going to alter the parameters of the 17-50 (like going for a wider focal length) is anybody's guess though...True, but I have to add that the 150-600mm got a new optical design, and the 90mm macro just got a facelift.
I am sure a replacement of the 17-50mm will get new, better optics.
