I don't think comparisons to the 24-70 F/2.8 L II are fair because it's a version two that is recently released. The version I is selling for $1300 now, which is only 200 bucks more than the EF-S. The price on the 24-70 II will drop with time, just like with the 70-200 2.8II. Though I doubt it will go all the way down to $1300, I don't see a future of 2k+ for it.

Considering that the 24-70 f/2.8 II (the closest full frame alternative) is running $2300, I would consider the 17-55 comparatively priced.

Yes, it could be built up to L standards externally, but I'd imagine that the price would climb to compensate.
