These are different lenses for different purposes.

Yes, but so what?

If it doesn't fulfill a purpose, L or not, it is of no use. Remember, you buy lenses to fulfill purposes, not to fill up a range in focal length.

Exactly... well, if it helps, the EF-S 10-22 uses multiple aspheric elements and a super UD element – characteristics of the 'L' lenses.

I think people are just too heavily poisoned into believing that L lenses can do wonders for them.

Since i am using a 1.6xLF DSLR, I would say the serve different purpose. hence, it all depence what's the subject and what kind of effect you want in your pic. Anyway, I own both because to me, they compliment each other well.

10-22 on a cropped camera gives you 16mm FOV at the widest end in terms of 35mm

17-40L gives you around 26mm FOV at the widest end.

which one do you need?:)

a chance for me, definitely 10-22;p

17mm is definitely not wide enough on a crop body, I bought a 10-22mm y'day and I love it.

with 10mm, the picture looks dramatic right?
or it looks very bad, because of improper use. a lot of people end up just shooting ultrawide without proper composition, end up with photos with too much space, or photos which are messy due to the huge amount of elements you need to include in your frame.
