Why is the 17-55 so much more than the 18-55?

Re: Agree: it is worth the difference.

The more I use the 17-55 on my 7D the more I appreciate it. Thanks to that lens I'm now in hock for a 70-200 f/4 IS as the quality of my 55-250 didn't compare. And I'd thought that 55-250 gave me nice results... which it did... but not compared to the 17-55.

It's easily the best lens I've used. No lens is "perfect" but that 17-55 comes a lot closer than most.
