I doubt you'll see much difference between the two combos, particularly at low ISOs. Wouldn't be surprised if the 15-85 was better in the corners on the wide end.

agree, from the images I have seen the 15-85 definitely has better corners at 24mm equiv.

And why trust a rating that uses just a few numbers for performance of a (zoom) lens? It's a joke when performance varies with focal length, aperture, focus distance etc. and within the frame ... And people have different priorities when it comes to image quality. The DXO number can be nothing more than a very rough approximation of the image quality of the lens.
