I could sell kit lens and then get 17-55f/2.8, that one is great I am
aware of it, that would cost me ~$650 and the 10-22 costs around $700
with hod.
The only problem is that if/when I decide to go with tele lens and
get 70-200 f/4 L I will be out of range from 55-70mm. I could go for
cheap 55-250 but I dont know how does it compare with 70-200 f/4 L.
Its "L" and it costs only $200 more. I would have to get hood and
case for it which will make "L" version only $150 more.

Trust me...get the L lens! It's a no brainer IMO. The gap from 55mm to 70mm is not really worth losing any sleep over...and the Canon 70-200 lenses are outstanding. I use my 70-200 2.8L almost every day and wouldn't think of replacing it unless it completely exploded on me. (And then I would just go out and get another one.)
