Lens Replacement for 18-55 IS

I need to find a relatively inexpensive (meaning sub $500) replacement for my 18-55IS as I am currently without anything in that focal range. I'd rather not simply snag another kit lens but try and find something a bit sharper and better built. Thinking about maybe the Tamron AF 17-50mm F/2.8 or Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC IF. Any thoughts on these choices? They will be paired with a 60D.
