I'd get a used 17-55, no question.

I've recently sold all my primes and soon will be looking for the 17-55. Don't get me wrong, i love primes, but i found i missed too many family moments for reasons similar to yours. Either i'd be noticed when i got close or was too far away and didn't have enough time to switch to a longer lens.

It was a difficult decision to get rid of primes due to their small size, but i can compromise size for a quality zoom like the 17-55 that would be just right for family/friend candids.
