Sigma 17-70 OS or Canon 17-85 IS lens?

Which lens would you suggest for use on my Canon T1i, and why?

Looking for a lens that covers W/A and Standard lengths, and currently have a possible offer for either of these particular lenses. So do not suggest any others at this time. Just, which of these 2. Other than a slightly faster aperture on the Sigma, is there much difference in IQ between them? Thanks
