Most Milky Way shots you see with foreground elements are mainly shot with a good tripod and a fast wide angle lens. With your 5DII, a good tripod and a Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 ($349 B&H (external link)) you can get some great Milky Way shots. I use all Rokinon products for my night shots and have been really happy with them.

Would a 17-40L on a FF be wide enough?

It would be great, but the f/4 would really hinder your shot. It would cause you to bump up your ISO by two stops likely and your image would become quite noisy.

Great shots! I agree that the light pillars help to make the images even better. I've never seen them before, but they look very cool. I would be heading out on cloudy nights just to see if I could capture them... ;-)a

Wonderful images.
Good taste of photographer in chosing attractive location has made the sky to truly shine.
Also that Rokinon 1.4 is a real jewel for wide angle astro photography. We are lucky to have such a great lens at such low price offered.
When every ingredient is perfect, what else you could expect from the result except a perfectly perfect. Very well done.
