I needed a good walk around for parties and landsapes. Rented the 24-105L and 15-85, visually compared shots at comp. focal lengths and could barely tell the difference.
I did not notice substantial CA in the 15-85 that was mentioned in reviews.

I bought the15-85 and could not be happier w/IQ, build. I"ve pretty much stopped using my 10-22 and 28-135. If I;'m outside doing scenics, I might bring another body w/my 70-300 Tamron.

The OP mentions weigh as a factor. That's why I went for the 60D vs the 7D. The only think I miss is the greater fps of the latter. So 60D+15-85 is my kit of choice after many other combinations dating back to the 20D+17-85
