I currently have the following lenses and looking for advice on "what's next"...welcome thoughts of the group

Canon EF-S 10-22mm
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8
Canon EF 24-105 f/4
Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC

The Tamron lens is an OK lens but I am finding limitations from an image quality perspective.  I typically use the 24-105 as more of my everyday lens now that I have a started to become a stronger photographer. 

So what do folks think I should consider next?  My problem with choosing is that I love taking portrait shots  but landscape is a lot of what I shoot as well. 

So what say you wise ones?

Drop the Tamron and the Canon 50 f/1.8....

For  the 70-200 f/4L IS or if the budget is not a big problem 70-200 f/2.8 IS and Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX HSM ( the sigma is way over Canon 50mm f/1.4 and slight under 50mm f/1.2 L ).

If you are using APS-C format keep the Canon 10-22 mm
