    I have few of the lenses discussed in this thread and I myself consider few others.

    17-40 is a walk-around lens, good for FF and Cropped, IQ wise not so great. f/4 is a great limitation indoor.

    16-35 is supposed to be a better lens. I was thinking of this lens but dropped bcoz of budget and settled for 17-40... which may not be a geed decision that I took.

    Toki 11-16 - The best UWA lens for cropped body... can not be used for FF.

    EFS 10-22 the closest UWA to Toki 11-16

    EFS 17-55 - A great all-around lens for cropped.

    24-70 -- FF equivalent of 17-55

    IS in this range is completely useless to me and hence IS does not affect my decision.

    What is "affordable" to you? Different people have different budgets...
    Have you read any reviews? You can start with www.dpreview.com and www.photozone.de or just ask Google for reviews. Happy reading

    Quality is RELATIVE

    I used to think 17-40 a great lens but after using Toki 11-16... I have different opinion... having said that I was happy once upon a time with my Sigma 17-70.

    Your bar is always a moving target!!
