advice on off brand wide angle alternative to canon 17-40 wth canon 6D

Hello,

I just bought a 6D and have wanted to get a wide angle to go along with my full frame kit for a while. I have the 24-70 2.8.

I just purchased the canon 17-40 f/4 for $700 and it is on it's way, but I am thinking that there might be a better option that might offer 2.8 for that amount with an off brand.

The 16-35 is too pricy for me, but I thought I remembered looking at a sigma top end wide angle that was maybe in this price range with a 2.8 or something faster than 4.0.

Just curious at maybe looking at some other lenses in that range before it gets here. Smaller size also helps as I will be doing a lot of backpacking with this kit.
