i focus for about an hour a day, then chill for the other 5.5 while my automated software does all the work for me but i only got to this point after working non-stop every waking hour for over a year

Since you seem to use the long end of the 17-85, I'd think the 15-85 would be a good bet, plus you'll gain the extra 2mm on the wide end (which is pretty substantial). I have the 17-55 and I...
nobd, what kind of photography do you like to do most? or where do you do most of your shooting? indoors, outdoors, night time, etc 85mm is pretty close to 100 but they both have different uses. i own both a 85 1.4 zeiss and 100L macro. the canon 85 1.8 is probably the best lens canon offers in terms of value. if you like to shoot portraits, especially women, then the 85 1.8 is gold.

90% of my workday is spent monitoring systems that aren't doing anything 90% of the time.
