I upgraded from the 60D. Nice camera!!

Get the 10-22 for landscape. Tokina is not bad. But the price is not much different so why not get the best?

17-55. I used it for almost two years. Love the image quality but got pretty annoyed by the build. Make sure you buy used. The original price is absurd for this build quality.

100mm non-L Macro is wonderful. It's almost identical to the L version except for two things which a lot of people seem to care about but I don't--superior build quality and IS. The non-L is half price of its counterpart. I would suggest saving that money and use it to get the 85 1.8.  Both 100 Macro and the 85 are usable in the future when you go FF. 
24-70 2.8L II, 16-35 F4L IS, 135L,  600EX-RT, 430EX RT, EOS M IR converted, efm 11-22, Fuji X-T2, Fujinon 35 F2, Fujinon 16 1.4, Fujinon 90 F2, Fujinon 56 1.2, Fujinon 50-140 2.8, Fujinon 100-400

I've got to say 100L for macro. There are some lenses that are such a pleasure to use that you don't know how you lived without it... And this is one. It was my first Lglass lens and the difference in quality and image over the kit lens was like night and day.
The best camera is the one in your hands

I love my 100L  too,  but it wasn't my first.  I  had a very solid 24-105,  but it wasn't love the way the 100  is.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.
