15-85 f/3.5-5.6 lens

Hi everyone, my wife is going to buy me a new lens for my up & coming b/day [old git],Not knowing what to buy me [what do you buy a man who has everything? I WISH] I sort of settled for the 15-85mm canon lens, but then reading this site & others i am not so sure, comments i,ve read - yes its a good lens once you get a good one!!, it took me three atempts to get a good one etc etc. So can anyone out there reasure me that it is a good lens or should i look elsewere, ie the 17-55 f/2.8-is for instance. This is just a hobby so did not want to go too silly with the price. I just want a walkabout lens, i already own the kit lenses 18-55 & 55-250 & the nifty fifty, I am looking for something i can use without carrying too much gear around unless i am doing something special. I know we all want top quallity out off a 8-500mm lens, but looking realistically, any thoughts. thanks. Steve
