What wide-angle lens for Nikon D90? Please help.

Hi guys, I'm considering buying zoom lens with good optics which can go wider than 28mm (the widest I got atm) for my D90.

I don't really care about going over 50mm as I rarely shot above that focal range.

The wider the better but it has to be good walkaround lens so rather not ultrawide for now. Although I crave Tokina 11-16mm its got to wait.
I'm looking to spend not more than £400 and so far have found these interesting:

1. Nikon AF-S 16-85mm f3.5-5.6G ED DX VR
2. Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC OS Macro HSM
3. Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 EX DC Macro
4. Tamron 17-50mm F2.8 XR Di ll LD Aspherical (IF)

Would appreciate your help with selection. Any opinion and further suggestions welcome.
Obviously the sharpness is very important to me
