Bob - If you were previously satisfied with the 28-90mm range, then the 17-85IS is definitely worth the extra money. I own it, and have sold a Sigma 18-200 (very similar to the Tamron) because the images didn't match up. Also, the IS feature is REALLY nice if you don't like tripods, like me, or like to shoot evenings, like me. Here's a shot I wouldn't have gotten without the IS (or a tripod). The "sftness was a result of too much noise reduction. It gave the water a "dreamy" look, so I decided to keep it this way. I believe the shutter speed was 1/6 second, handheld!:
