Bad move on both fronts. Use the 17-40 on FF only. On APS-C go with the Sigma 18-35 (or if you must, the Canon 17-55 IS).

I would not buy the Canon 50 1.4 today. I'd go with the EF-S 60 Macro instead.

Not sure the 18-35 would be such a stellar move either, at least for a walkaround. Awfully short range. Even the 17-55 is short for some photographers. IQ for the Sigma is supposedly excellent, but that doesn't necessarily make it the preferable choice for more general purpose photography.
