what is sharper? 17-55, 24-70 or 70-200

Hi,

I have a 17-55 F2.8 on a DX body. Love it, very happy with it.

However, every time I rented or used a 70-200 f2.8 VRI, the images just look so much nicer in terms of sharpness and contrast than my 17-55. So much, that I am considering selling my 17-55 and get the 70-200 (VRI or VRII).

But I will miss the wide side of things.

So I was wondering, would the 24-70 give me the same sharpness and quality that the 70-200 seems to give me? If so, would it be a worth upgrading to the 24-70 (on a DX body?)

Thanks,

-DVSKID
