When I was using a D200, I had the 18-70 kit lens and upgraded to the 17-55. Before I sold the 18-70, I shot them side-by-side, and frankly, IQ-wise, the 17-55 was maybe 10-15% "better". But, the build quality and autofocus speed, etc. was of a much higher caliber. These are some of what you pay the extra for.

Now...having said that, I have a lightly used D700 (w/ about 7000 actuations) that had a major electrical malfunction (no power-up at all) that has been in the shop waiting for a part (af sensor) from Nikon for TWO MONTHS. So...sometimes paying the extra for pro quality is just an illusion. Two months for a part? Really?
