get the 18-55mm IS

It's a big improvement over the old 18-55mm non IS

at least as sharp as 17-85mm IS and the IS allowed me to shot as slow as 1/10 sec

the 17-85 IS on the other hand, is quite expensive, and lack sharpness/contrast & saturation compared to other lens in it's price range. 28-135mm IS is better

Or if you don't mind getting 3'rd party lens, you can get Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 for $350 or Tamron 17-50mm F2.8 for $450
