Sigma 17-70 or Canon 15-85 for 60D

Hi All

I'm in the hunt for a general walkabout lens for my 60D and have come up with two options. the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8 OS HSM or the Canon 15-85 IS USM Lens. I generally shoot during the day and although I enjoy night photography, I don't get the chance to do much of it. Is the Canon £200 better than the Sigma? Is either noticeably sharper than the other. It's a minefield I know but it's good to hear thoughts from others. I am new to the 60D having just upgraded from the 450D so I would really like to know if you more experienced users have used these on this body.
