I'm very pleased with my 17-40, actually - one of my favorite lenses. I use it exclusively on my 5D Mk II and I'm very happy with the results. I also love the portability of the 17-40 which makes it great for travel. I'm not a landscape-shooter per-se but I do extensively use this lens when traveling.
Supposedly it's the best WA zoom Canon has to offer, so I would suggest you look into a prime as suggested by others on this forum (though a T&S would perhaps be a little overkill). How about a 24mm L? Note I've no experience with the latter. I do have a Samyang 14mm and a Sigma 20mm - interesting lenses but not for landscape work I'd say...
