Nikkor 17-55mm - thoughts?

I considered picking a 2nd hand copy for $800 but instead considering the Sigma 17-50mm because it's lighter and has image stabilization.   I don't think that the Sigma build isn't as 'tough' as Nikon's, but that doesn't matter to me.

Also could have picked up a Nikkor 16-85mm for $300 to mount on my D500, but I keep going back to wanting the 16-80mm (I had one but returned it because it was decentered), and I really like the feel of that lens and its capability, but for the price, I"m not willing to buy new.

Perhaps, those who have own either of the above lens can chip in what they find better.
