Thank you all for your comments and the pictures posted here! I will go for the Canon 10-22, I think the extra range compared to the Tokina 11-16 will be nice to have.

+1 on the EasyJet once you get over there, book long enough in advance and pay like $10 a seat, the unlimited-weight-as-long-as-you-can-carry-it-yourself has proven more than useful for me in the past.
Also, I've never flown through Frankfurt, though I've done Schiphol, Heathrow, Gatwick, Stanstead, Luton all often enough that I wouldn't bother. You're probably better off going to Frankfurt for any continent-based travel, then hop on a german ICE fast-train, book up to 90 days in advance and you can generally get anywhere between NL, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Poland, Austria, Switzerland for as little as €30, much preferable to flying and take all you can carry (also, you get as much leg-room as business class on a plane).
However I would like a screen that gives as true a colour representation as is possible in a laptop. (Can they be calibrated?).
Canon went as far as III in their lineup with the 1d series.
You forgot the 1D Mark IV.
Calling it the 5D X would make not make sense if you take Chuck Westfall's explanation for the X:
- X for extreme (X-treme) performance
- X for cross-over (X-over), since this represents the merging of Canon's two pro digital SLR cameras, the higher-resolution EOS-1Ds Mark III and higher-performance EOS-1D Mark IV, into a single next-generation model
- The Roman numeral X, as in 10, because the EOS-1D X represents the 10th generation of pro-class SLR from Canon since the F-1 debuted in 1971
If Canon would regard the 5D series as pro-class, then only the last one would apply.
So my bet is on "Canon EOS 5D Mark III".
Funny that only the 1 series has the dash between "EOS" and the digit.
By the way, am I correct in these 10 generations?
