Re: not easy, but if this helps...

I have not used the 17-70, but I did own the 17-85 before I bought the T2i with the kit lens. After a week with the kit lens I sold the 17-85 because it was pretty soft in comparison . I was actually happy with the 17-85 on my older Xti before I tried the newer kit lens. I miss the range of the 17-85, but not the quality.

Save up for the 15-85!

Both of them are pretty bad imo and not worth the upgrade if you already have the kit lens (i,e, 18-55).
