I am lucky enough to have some money to spend on new lenses for my 7d. I currently have EF-S 17-85 and EF 70-300.

My plan is:
EF-S 10-22
EF L 24-105
EF L 70-300 F4-5.6

This seems to give me a nice covarage of all common lengths with decent lenses. Rough total cost (on Amazon uk) £2,650.

Am I making the right choices do you think? I did consider the 28-300 L, would I be better of with that and the 10-22?

Thanks for any suggestions.

I would recommend you to choose your lenses with the point of view that in the future you may want to go into full frame bodies, such as the 5dMKIII, in which case those EF-S lenses can't be used.

A similar, but FF friendly, set would be:

Sigma AF 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 HSM DG II
Canon EF 24-105 f4 L IS
Canon EF 70-200 f4 L IS

What I have and use are the following (again FF friendly):

Samyang 14 f2.8
Tamron 28-75 f2.8
Canon EF 70-200 f4 L IS
Sigma 150-500 f5-6.3 OS

I also have some APS-C lenses such as the Tokina 12-24 f4 and other primes> Canon EF 85 f1.8 and Canon EF100 f2.8 L IS.
