Tamron 17-50 vs Canon 17-85

I've read the Tamron is sharper, lighter, AND its about 50 dollars cheaper. Those 3 things make it seem like an obvious better choice. Is it? I want it as a walk-around lens accompanied by the Canon 100mm macro. I'd appreciate any and all feedback thank you!

The Tamron is constant 2.8 which is good but......the Canon has USM and IS which is good for 2-3 stops plus Canon's build quality will be superior. having said that the Tamron will be a good lens.
