Would this be a wise decision? I really want to get in landscape photography some more. I used to only take pictures of cars but I have gotten kind of bored. Would the 17-40 be ideal or something else? I need a recommendation for a UWA lens that would be best suited for landscape photography(beach sunrises etc)
Here is a shot I did this past weekend with my 24-105mm L ...Yea, not the best but It was my first time.

Wrong lens for your crop camera mate ;) Get the 10-22.

Btw, I wouldn't sell the 24-105 if I'm you.

Is the quality a big difference between the non "L" 10-22 and the "L" 17-40? I am probably going to upgrade bodies soon(3-4 months). Why would you keep the 24-105mm?

The 10-22 is often said to be sharper than the 17-40 on ff.

If you are upgrading to ff there's even more reason NOT to sell the 24-105....

I am really wanting to upgrade to the 5D Mark II....Is the 24-105mm a great companion for this? Will the 24-105mm serve me well for landscapes?

I have been thinking of trading my 24-105 for a 17-40. I do not use the 24-105 much but I fall in love with it every time I use it. It is very versatile (on FF) and IQ is excellent. I finally bought the 17-40 and I am glad I still have the 24-105 for those times when taking several lenses is not an option.

Sure is. It's great for landscape if 24mm is wide enough for you.

It would probably be smarter to save up my money and buy a used in good condition 17-40. The IS on the 24-105mm also comes in handy.

I had the 17-40 along with the 24-105. On ff, 24 is usually wide enough for me (similar to 15mm on crop). So I sold the 17-40 as I didn't want money tied up in a lens I wouldn't use often. Then again, my kids are my main subject. I don't do a lot of Landscape stuff. I found the 24-105 very versatile a Disney last month on ff. however if you'll be doing mostly landscape, the 17-40 might be better for you.

if you plan to stay with crop sensor then consider canon 10-22mm, tokina11-16mm, or sigma 10-20mm. 17mm is wide but sometimes not wide enough for lanscape

Tokina 12-24 gets my vote if you're on a budget. The plus side is that you can still use it from about 18MM to 24 on FF cameras if you're in the same buggy as me.

Why not getting a mark III instead?
If I were you, either you buy Mark II or III, I would keep 24-105, and get a 17-40. If you stick with 1.6x camera, then buy 10-22.

Possibly cost?!?

I bought a 17-40L with the full intention of off loading the 24-105L which I did & I've not regreted it so far.

On FF jumping from 24mm to 17mm was lovely for interiors & landscapes.
