It should have a crop factor of 1.5, to match Nikon, etc.
Why should it match Nikon?

It will not be a mark 2 of the original 7D if it wasn't an APS-C sensor.
LOL, funny and unfortunately true. Someone has too much time on his hands or loves to ponder.
I have a boring job and very few sexy co-workers to otherwise occupy my attention.
I really believe Canon had originally intended to kit the 7D with the 15-85. Both released at the same time and the 15-85 is pretty much the EF-S equivalent of the 24-105.
But there was so much wailing and whining when the 7D price was announced (go back and see some of the comments from 40D owners at the time, who were incredibly bitter about the pricing), I think they realized they couldn't package the two together and have a competitively priced kit.
If they don't introduce a new kit lens, I can see the 15-85 being kitted with the 7DII. Could also use the 17-55 since they cut the price of that lens.
As far as ultra wide angle lenses go there are only a hand full from any manufacturer that aren't terrible.
You think the EF-S 10-22 is terrible? Not that the OP is looking for EF-S lenses, but I asked since you include them in your list.
I think it is actually pretty good, and I have used it for more than 2 years.
