The 15-85 is not significantly sharper than the 18-55 IS USM II. However the 3mm at the wide angle & the extra zoom with a fast focussing mechanics makes it superior.

If you need one walk around lens then the best of the choices would include

i) EF-S 17-55mm f2.8 IS USM.
ii) Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 with OS.
iii) EF-S 15-85mm f3.5 - 5.6 IS USM.

Tamron optical quality could be a compromise especially the VC version.
