I heard the Samyang has extremely bad distortion, but great sharpness.

If you want ito use filters, you give up a lot of cheap sharpness and overall quality with the Tokina, but then the 17-40 is probably your choice. Did you check the Sigmas?

Here is a gallery with some Tokina 16-28 shots, check the vancouver gallary: http://dirkluchtman.zenfolio.com/p561113202/h53b2c75c#h53b2c75c

Or here:

A lot of these were shot either with the Tokina or the Canon 70-200 f4IS.

Try the Samyang 14mm f2.8. Even if you keep the 17-40L, 17 mm still isn't superwide. So a prime gives you more sharpness and in this case a lot more on the wide side I still have to try it but I read lot's of great reviews about it and it is next on my list

Lens profile will correct the Samyang distortion.
