anyone ever compare these directly?

I've got the itch to spend more money (I'm justifying it as doing my part to keep the economy moving!) and was wondering if there is a significant difference in sharpness between the two.

I am in no way saying that I have a problem with my kit lens. it's just that I've looked at the reviews of the kit lens as compared to the canon 17-55 2.8- and from the digital picture comparison the 17-55 is markedly sharper. I guess I've been spoiled by the sharpness of the 50.

IMHO at 50mm taking landscape shots the kit doesn't hold a candle to my particular copy of the 50.
