The 17-40mm is not great on a crop camera, yes usable but you really enjoy this lens on full frame.

you say that but you never clarify why it is not good on a crop camera and where is your evidence? i have been using this lens more on my 40D than my 5D around the world and i love it, i think this combo (17-40mm+40D) work great!

cheerz.

It's not that it is bad on crop, just that better lenses have been released since the 40D and 5Dc were top dogs.  You are giving 2007 advice in 2013.
