BTW, whatever happened to the new Tokina 11-16mm MkII which was supposed to launch March, 2012 for Nikon and July, 2012 for Canon?   ::)

At any rate, I plan to just hold on to my Tokina 11-16 MkI on crop body for my wide angle needs for now while waiting for something better for my full frame in the future.  None of the current Canon UWA options are compelling IME, thus all the wide angle hope riding on the vaporware Canon 14-24 mm.  Then again, even if released, Canon is likely to price it at least $2500-3000 if not more, so.. :'(

Lens flare from street lights at night has consistently been better for me on the 17-40l.
For the best landscape IQ I can't understand how the 10-22 and a Rebel would be better than a 5d2 and the 17-40l. I will agree there's more distortion marginally and maybe a touch more corner softness with the latter. That said, I have very large 10-22 prints that look pretty bad (soft) at the edges too.

Still, everyone's experience is valid and maybe tells me there's more to this lens variation caper than I thought.

Just get a 5d3 and a Zeiss 21 and move on :)

If you are shooting landscapes why not to consider Samyang 14 2.8? sharpness and CA control is awesome even wide open!

It has the same problem as Tokina 16-28.  You can't put any filter.  I consider it a must to be able to use filters when doing landscape photos most of the time.
