For general shooting, unless you need the tele end, I would go for the 15-85.

To illustrate the amazing focal range of the 18-270 combined with a high density camera (18 mb APS-C) look at this:

What you see on top is a 100% center crop (wide open) when the lens is combined with a 1.4 TC (Kenko Pro 300). The red arrow points to the same house using the wide 18mm end of the lens (without TC)
