I know that the 17-85 is not perfect, and I also know the 15-85 is a much better lens. However, I can't justify that cost right now, so that one is not in the cards.

The lens is disappointing in many respects but it gives you greater focal length - useful when snapping candids and for getting that nice blurred background. Pick up 17-85 second hand. Sell it to fund the 15-85 when you've saved up.
