17-70 vs. 18-135 - ADVICE

I know, I know...why don't I do a search. I'm sure this topic has been brought up countless times. I did do a search and while I got plenty of results, I thought it would be much more efficient just to create a new post. Thanks for obliging.

Amazon has the K-5 @ 1099.99 at the moment, which is almost too good to pass up. I keep going back and forth between the 17-70 and 18-135. I know the advantages of each, but I am more concerned with overall IQ. I love the constant f/4 of the 17-700 and the WR of the 18-135, along with its greater zoom range.

Thanks for any input.
