I considered this one, because it also has IS. But the EF-S concerns me in that I will be dropping $$$ on a lens that I probably cannot use on my next upgrade (if I go the FF route).

Buy lenses for the body you have now. You can always resell them if you move to full frame. I moved to full frame and sold my 3 year old 17-55 2.8 and got $100 less than the new price back. $100 for 3 years use of a great lens is a bargain.

The 17-55mm 2.8 is a fantastic lens. If I was using a crop again it'd be the first lens I'd get. Then the 70-200mm 2.8. With those 2 lenses you're covered.
