15-85 for sure. The 2mm less at the wide end makes a difference, lens corrections are applied automatically and this lens...

Only with newer DSLR's that the "Lens aberration corrections" settings that include correction for barrel distortion for JPG images.

Older DSLR's (e.g., 70D) "Lens aberration corrections" only corrects "Peripheral illumin." and "Chromatic aberration" — does NOT correct barrel distortion.

Still, that is more than the 17-70, where no single correction finds place.

And second, when shooting RAW, it is also an advantage in Photoshop, Lightroom and/or DPP, as also here the auto correction applies, where the 17-70 has to be done by manually selecting the lensprofile.
