The 17-40mm is an outstanding lens and you got a good price for it!  For backpacking you want to keep the weight down. F/2.8 lenses are much heavier and you generally want to shoot at f/8 for landscape anyways to keep the corners sharp.  You definitely want to get a polarizing filter for landscape too.
