The 15-85 is a great bit of glass, rented one for a week mid last year and loved the lens. It's quality, IQ, AF speed, color/contrast and sharpness are as good as my 10-22. The lens has some minor distortion at both ends but is easy to correct if needed. On a crop body it gives you 24-135mm and that covers a good bit of ground.
I didn't buy the lens as I usually carry a three lens kit most always. The 17-40, 100L and 70-200 f4L IS, it's not a light weight kit but works, sits on my lap. In my walking days it was an A-1, 24 f2, 35-105 and 80-200; with a few extension tubes...and too many rolls of Kodachrome...the 35-105 got the least use on a daylight walkabout
I've wondered how well those 18-250/270 zooms perform...would be a nice light weight option.
