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?

The 24-105L is a great all around lens for the 5D full frame bodies. It "may" be wide enough for your landscape shooting on the 5D2, so I would hold of on purchasing any ultra-wide angle lens if you are serious about upgrading to full frame in the next couple of months.

The Canon EFS 10-22mm is an excellent UWA lens, and compares very well on a crop body versus the 17-40L on a full frame. However, the 10-22mm will not work on a full frame body without modification -- hence why you should hold off purchasing if you are that close to buying into a full frame body.

the 24-105 vignettes a good bit on my 5dmk2 @24mm, i love the lens but for landscapes i'd rather have something wider that doesn't vignette.

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.

The mark III is wayyy more expensive. I will probably pick up the Mark II used.

If you want stay with the crop, you may want to consider the 15-85.
The IQ is better than the 17-40.....but not as good as the 24-105. Very close to the 105 though.
The 15 for crop is the same as 24 on FF.
The 24 on FF is plenty wide.
I got a 17-40 last summer and haven't used it at all.
The 24-105 is so sharp and the IQ is simply amazing.
But on a crop, an ef-s lens like the 10-22 or 15-85 is a much wider option than a 24-105 or 17-40.

If you go to a 5d2, you may find that the 24 gives you the wide you need.
But on a crop you may be better off with the ef-s WA zooms.

So will the 10-22mm provide the same quality sharpness as the 24-105?

I've actually done this trade back and forth more than once. Currently own a very sharp 24-105 and I vowed I'd never sell it. I am going to really try to stick with that vow as it offers me much more than my 17-40's between the reach and IS. Sure, I can't get to 17mm but to me, that was a reasonable trade-off. I'd just consider what you shoot, and how you shoot it and make a pro/con list.

I had 10-22 before, and the image quality was good. It cannot really be compared to 24-105 since the range is different.

However, if you think of switching to full frame, forget about 10-22. My recommendation, decide what camera you want to go, first. In any cases, I recommend to keep 24-105.

The 24-105 is a great combo on a 5D2. It is my most used lens whereas my 17-40 is my least used on that body.

The 15-85 is close to the 24-105.
The 10-22 is as good or better than the 17-40.
But the comment about deciding what body first (FF?), and then choose a lens.
I think you will be amazed with the difference of the 24-105 on FF.

Decide on FF or crop body first.

The 24-105 on my 5d3 is better than on the 5d2.
I noticed it right away.

Haha with the price of the 5d3, you can get a 5d2 plus 2 lenses L maybe (used or refurbished). Picked up my 5d2 refurbished for 1600 through the loyalty program, a refurbished 24-105mm lens with additional 20% off for 796 and a refurbished 50mm 1.4 also with additional 20% off. Altogether less than 2675. Still saves alot of money over just the 5d3 body.

Keep the 24-105 and pick up the Sigma 10-20.

The Canon 10-22 is way overpriced and doesn't even include a lens hood or four year warranty.

fwiw, I owned a Sigma 10-20 (actually used it on a 1.3x crop) and it was a stellar lens. I've not been a huge fan of Sigma telephoto stuff so far but on the wide end, they really make a great lens (my Sigma 15mm FE was better than the Canon I'd tried even!)
