Which Landscape Lens of 7D

Hi all, I'd really like some thoughts on a landscape lens that would improve on the results that I get from my superb EF 24-105mm but sure there's a better landscape lens, or maybe I need some tips for better results on my 24-105mm. I'm not obsessed with wide angle but more concerned with infinity focus. I've been reading reviews etc on the EF-S 10-22mm, EF-S 17-55mm, EF 17-40mm, but would much rather hear a real opinion than look at results tables.

Cheers

If you have a crop sensor, you must have the 10-22mm. The reach to 10mm can be invaluable for landscape, especially urban landscapes, if you don't want to chop off part of a skyline for example.
A 10-22mm and 24-105mm are a great pair for landscapes.

Word on the 10-22. I am wanting something in the 10ish ballpark on the wide end to go along with my Manual Focusing lineup. The Yahsica 50 doesn't get wide enough for obvious reasons.

That said, the

17-55 is great, but since you basically meet and exceed that range, the 10-22 will complent that 24-105 very well.

+1 This is a no brainer and you can't go wrong here. Only issue to consider is if you plan on a full frame body in the near future it won't work on those because it's an EF-S lens.

True, however 10-22mm should retain it's value well, given that it's the best wide angle lens for a APS-C sensor camera on the market.

maybe not only the 7D, but the camera doesn't matter that much:

The tokina 12-24 II is a amazing UWA lens as well.... I owned on for a couple years and it's very sharp wide open. Focus can be a bit slow but most of the time you don't need to track a fast moving target. If you don't need a f2.8 lens this is a great choice!

Btw it can also be used from 18-24mm on a FF camera as well w/o too much vignetting...
I used it on my 5D for a few months until I switched to the 17-40

Agree with Snowblower - think carefully if you're planning to upgrade your camera anytime soon. The logical upgrade for your camera involves moving to full frame (lots of cheap 5D Mk II's around right now for some reason...). If it's at all on your mind for the future, upgrade the camera first then get the lens - the 17-40mm is more or less the equivalent on a full frame of the 10-22 on a crop, and it's cheaper too.

True slangford, however 17mm isn't that wide on a crop, equivalent to only 27mm on a full frame.
If there is only one EF-S lens worth having it is the 10-22mm, it's really an essential lens to get the most out of the 7D for landscapes.

Before you get hung up on the common recommendation on this forum that an ultra-wide len is required for landscape photography, you need to realize that every experienced photographer that I know uses virtually all of their available focal lengths for landscape photography.

I have a 20D and 7D and three lenses covering 16mm to 200mm (280mm with a 1.4x extender) and I use all three lenses for landscape photography. The "ultra-wide look" for landscape photography is often quite boring to say the least.
