Kind of tough to evaluate the two against each other IMO.

Interestingly enough, in the comparison below, the 24-85mm VR is sharper on DX than the 17-55mm, (see links below), even when the 17-55mm is stopped down. Alternately, the 17-55mm doesn't work on FX except in crop mode and doesn't have VR, so it's best place is on a DX camera where it can be a bit faster and wider but not as long.

One thing undebatable is the 17-55mm has a great build quality while the 24-85mm is a consumer lens, (though it seems quite well built in my example).
