Can't decide between 17-40 f4L, 24mm f2.8 is, or save up for 24-70 f4.0l IS or 16-35 f4l ?

Hi,

I am looking to buy a new lens that would cover at least down to 20-24mm range on a full frame.

The oldie 17-40 f4L is currently on sale at around $499 and looks very tempting, but I understand it's fairly soft on the corners unless it's up step down? So I am wondering if it's still worth getting it over say a 24mm f2.8 prime?

Another two options, but a bit more expensive, are the 24-70 f/4.0 L IS USM or the popular 16-35 f/4L IS USM.

I just upgraded from 60d to 6d mk2, and my current good lenses are 35mm f/2 IS usm, 85mm f1.8 usm and 100mm f2.8L IS usm that I love. But I am missing out on a wide angle lens.

I've spent hours looking at reviews on all 4 lenses, and browsing flickr gallery drilled down to these particular lenses and I can't decide.

So, if you had a 6d mk2 + 35mm f/2 IS usm, 85mm f1.8 usm and 100mm f2.8L IS usm lenses.

Out of the 4 listed what would you add and why?

Thank you!
