Only you could know. I don't see how anyone's opinion would really matter without more information.

Glass is where its at. Given the choices available, I picked the 10-22 choice. It is a neat lens for what I do. For what you like to do, I have no idea.

If you really read and absorb this forum/website, glass always wins over bodies. Always.

Glass transfers, bodies do not. Kinda...

However, in my case, where I keep bodies and glass, both, that's a bit different. Oddly enough, I have tasks for every body and lens in different combinations.

I love this art!

Glass.. glass... glass..

There is almost no difference between the XTi and the 40D IQ wise and the 10-22 or the 17-55IS is going to make a huge improvement IQ wise based on your current lens list.

Go for the Glass then upgrade the body.

Also check out the Sigma 10-20mm for a great Ultra wide, that will save you some money towards the 18-55 IS
