Change in lenses - Giving up my loved 17-55 for?

Hey all

I currently have the following for my Canon 7D:

Canon 10-22

Canon 17-55

Canon 28-135

Canon 50 1.4

Canon 70-200 2.8L (1st Gen)

The lenses I use the most are Canon 70-200 and 17-55 followed by the 10-22. 28-135, not used often, at all.

I am currently sending my 17-55 to Canon for cleaning/service - I LOVE this lens, LOVE it but being a push pull lens or maybe a non-L, it's very susceptible to dust. In a cleaner environment (indoor, portraits) it would be great - but I'm outside! I do a lot of landscape, agriculture and occasionally sports - so, I love 2.8 but could 'maybe' settle for 4.0.

I want to sell my 17-55 - any suggestions on a new lens to fill the gap or new lineup if I also sold the 28-135 too (although, a nominal amount of $ from that one!)? What do you LOVE in this range of 17-55 that may be a better option/upgrade? I'd prefer EF - although, I don't think it matters, there aren't really any EF-S options from here anyway!

Any suggestions, comments, feedback would be greatly appreciated!
