I bought a used non-VC version and it focuses quicker than my 50mm f/1.8. Much quicker. It's also a lot less noisey. I can't speak for the VC version though, I'm still very much of the opinion that VC is practically useless below 50mm.

The 17-50 VC is an excellent lens. It's super sharp and contrasty and one of my most used lenses.

So yes: an effective image stabilisation is a valuable asset even with normal or short focal lengths!

Agreed. The only people I ever hear saying that it's not needed are Nikkor 17-55 owners who paid twice as much and don't have VR. It's like they don't even consider low light where VC would be an advantage.... at ANY focal length. Kind of strange that they are quick to forget that.
