Was in a similar boat, considered the Tokina 16-28 too for a while. Decided the 17-40 will mean I can upgrade my 70-200 a lot sooner, and I don't need f2.8 that wide.

For the price, you can't beat 17-40L for FF. If for crop, Canon 10-22 and Tokina 11-16 are the best options.

Using FF so the Tokina is not an option. I do want a Tokina 100 2.8 macro though. They make good stuff.

Tokina make the 16-28 f2.8 as the full frame equivalent, I don't rate it as highly as their 11-16 though. One of the main issues I had is no filters on the Tokina due to the bulbous front element.

I had one, it was a great lens even shot portraits with it on a crop body just fine. I sold a bunch of gear a few years ago to cover some costs, got a 16-35 II when I re bought all new gear, wanted to f2.8 my main setup 16-35,24-70,70-200 f2.8's.

I keep going back and forth on whether to swap out my current EFS 10-22 for the 17-40L. I have both a 5D3 and 7D, and do not shoot much UWA. We have planned a summer trip to Glacier National Park, though, and I want a UWA lens for that trip. I will be taking both bodies.

Decisions, decisions.

Both lenses are valued about the same. I just traded my 10-22 for a 17-40L and think it's a great lens. Just as good as my 10-22 was. Plus if you have both bodies on you, the 17-40 makes a decent midrange zoom on the 7D.
