15-85 or 18-135 when also having a 10-18?

I mainly take pictures of landscapes and buildings. I was looking to upgrade the 18-55 kit lens and was deciding between the 15-85 and 18-135 (not the original, the STM/USM). I also have a 55-200.

I had pretty much decided on the 15-85 due to the recommendations on here, the good reports of the image quality, construction quality, and of course being it 15mm and widest rather than 18 would be useful for landscapes.

However, I also planned to get a wider lens for the occasions where it would be very useful. So, earlier than planned, I bought a 10-18mm. This seems to make the extra 3mm of the 15-85 redundant, unless the quality of the 15-85 is much better than the 10-18.

So now I am thinking the 18-135 would be a better option as I would have more reach and no overlap in the 15-18 range. However, given most of my shots are probably in the 20-50 range (with the superwide and zoom for the minority rather than majority of shots), is the 18-135 really a good option if the quality of the lens at 20-50 is not as good as the 15-85?

For others that have the 10-18, what lenses do you pair it with?
