My current lens lineup:
Canon 24-105mm f/4 L
Canon 28mm f/1.8
Canon 50mm f/1.4
Canon 135mm f/2 L

Bodies:
Canon T1i
Canon 7D

Shooting style:
Everything!

I'm looking into UWA lenses and would like to know people's opinions on the following lenses:
Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8
Canon 17-40mm f/4 L
Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L
Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5

Any other lenses to consider?

Those 2 lenses won't be UWA on your crop bodies. :cry:

I loved the 10-22 when I had it, an excellent performer.

Looking at your lens collection so far anything less than X-22mm+ is going to leave a big gap in the wide end for you. I'd personally go for the canon 10-22mm or one of the 12-24mm choices.

I am really happy with my 10-22, but I haven't tried any of the others to compare.

Speed wise, it's pretty fast but it's not as fast as the USM lens. But it's still fast enough.
