My 17-40 had focus issues past 30mm. Went to Canon twice, they did not fix it. I honestly don't think they have any QC mechanism. Getting a body with micro focus adjust fixed the problem. My 17-40 is awesomely sharp now.

Do you have a body with micro adjust? It sounds like it may have these kinds of issues.

Both lenses would be nice, but if you prefer the 11-16, I'd look at picking up a 24-105 IS, which is a beautiful lens. You can easily find a new 24-105 on Craigslist for $850.

The 17-40 doesn't really pair well with the 11-16, IMHO.
