I use the 17-40 on my cropped 40D for almost all my landscape shots.

It's fantastic....

And to be honest, the extra aperture of the 17-55 (f2.8 Vs f4) won't become an issue when you're shooting outside where there's enough light, if landscape photography is what you intend with this new lens.

Chris, it really comes down to how 'wide' you want to go?

I'm sure the 17-55 is a good lens. Even if it lacks the build quality of an L lens and is priced considerably higher than the 17-40L.
