good for you bud - makes a change to see someone upgrading for a genuine "need" rather than just to have the latest, shineiest kit

Your reasoning sounds fine. I have often said that a full frame camera is an extravagance for 'personal' use, but if you are looking to make money, then the 5D is the tool to use.

Most of my landscape stuff is 17-40 on a 5D, like Ade I also have the 24-105 superb bit of kit too.
The biggest prob with the wide end of both is the need for wider filters as I have cokin ones and they show on the widest settings.

So do the Lee ones, even on the 77mm adaptor. Having said that, the image file is slightly bigger than what the viewfinder shows so theoretically at least a minor crop shouldn't hurt the composition. It does grate though.

17-40 + lee wide angle adaptor + Lee holder + heliopan thin polariser = tiny vignette

hardly notice it to be honest

the Lee one is far worse at vignetting and more expensive
