My girlfriend has the 28-70. Nice lens, pretty sturdy for a tamron, and the optics seem to be pretty good. You might miss the wide angle of the 17-50 though, but that depends on your shooting style. 70mm is nice for portraits though.

Id get the 17-50 for the wide angle.

IMHO 50mm and 70mm isnt that much difference on the long end, where as 28mm and 17mm is a huge difference on the wide angle, but maybe thats just my style of shooting.
