Just tried both lenses and I feel the sharpness and clarity of the Canon 17-85 was much better. I have hesitated over the lense because its a little bit heavier but I guess I will need to stick with it....the pictures are much better!!!

Can I use a non Canon flash that might not be too heavy?

I agree, I've had both and I sold my Sigma to keep the 17-85. Much better images, and the IS is great at any focal length, especially in low light... The 420EX flash is the lightest of the Canon external units, not sure about other brands.
