Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM, not a L-series lens and expensive, but it's worth the price, great IQ, sharp and has a stabilization, helps a lot in low light situation, for the telephoto 70-200mm f/4, if you have more money f/2.8. If you need something wider Sigma 10-20mm it's a great lens, it;s perform pretty close as Canon but it's almost twice cheaper.
If you're going to recommend the sigma 10-20 over the canon 10-22, you might as well recommend the sigma 17-50 over the 17-55 as well. The sigma 10-20 doesn't perform as good as the canon 10-22, but the sigma 17-50 performs just as good as, or better, than the canon 17-55, which IMO is not worth the price.

So I am thinking the 7d with the 18-135 that comes with it, the 15-85 and the 85mm
Should that cover me at least to start out...?
Why would you want both the 18-135 and the 15-85? If you're going to keep the 18-135, then you just want something wider, and something faster, so go for a sigma 10-20 for the estate and landscape photos, and either a 100mm 2.8 for macro, or a 30 1.4 for low light indoors.
