Since you asked if its worthy

i) The wide angle difference between 18mm and 15mm is substantial.

ii) The zoom difference from 55mm to 85mm can't be ignored either.

Good IS, reasonably fast AF & nice build quality makes 15-85mm a decent lens. However, IMHO it should be priced 75-100$ lesser than what its being priced now. Its not significantly sharper than the 18-55mm lenses.
