Is the 15-85mm really faster than 18-55 or 18-135?

I beg to differ. I also have the 15-85mm lens & use it quite frequently as well. But IMHO it is overpriced.

Optical quality is not as great as that of 17-55mm and sharpness is not better than the 18-55mm.

Surely the IS, the 2mm at the wide end and the additional zoom makes up for a good lens. Other than that the lens is an overpriced lens.
