    Put it simply: The sensor cannot capture what the lens has screwed up. So priority should be given to the lens with adequate consideration of what the body is capable of. Higher end bodies come with certain features and functions that may be necessary for your style of shooting. What is yours? Define you needs (not your wants), check your wallet and you'll find the answer(s).
    Btw: we might use the term 'to shoot' but still the camera brand is only Canon

    Do note that Canon 10-20 is an EF-S lens, not usable on 5D2. You can have a look at 17-40 or a UWA prime.

    Finished projects as in what? buildings? interiors? small objects? It really depends on what you are going to shoot.

    If you are going to shoot buildings, you will need perspective control lenses and those run into the thousands. I am not sure about Canon but in the Nikon world it is called PC lenses.

    Get the 40D or 50D with 10-20mm lens. Best for interiors. None of the lens you listed are wide enough.

    Your 4.5K budget could fit a 5DmkII + 17-40 f/4L i think.... i think.....

    well, if you are planning to go to full frame , please plan your lens roadmap properly.

    not familiar with canon, but if you going to go full frame, buy only full frame lenses.

    anyways, camera body get updated frequently.. every now and then there is a proper breakthrough for canon where they don't just throw pixie dust (i.e. some small obscure addition that people MIGHT want, but don't really need).. so lens > body.. for all brands.

    that said, doesn't mean you go extreme and find some antique 10d or something and then complain that the noise performance no good. 40d is relatively up-to-par with modern standards today.

    17mm on FF is damn wide...

    After factoring in the FOV crop (1.6x) on the 40D/50D, the 10-22mm is equivalent to about 16mm on FF. So if you can accept the 10-20mm on 40D/50D, you should be able to accept the 17-40mm on the 5DmkII.
