I think the new 16- 35 f/4 can match (and beat) anything the 10-18 or 10-22 can do. Except IS I guess. Having more options for lenses isn’t the same has having more lenses you need.
The 16-35 f/4 has IS. And contrary to some pre-launch reports, it does have a switch to turn the IS on and off.
Even better. I really need to get around to selling my 17-40 and upgrade.

Too much discussion of bodies and not enough attention to lenses for this thread. Considering a "starting from scratch" scenario here, I'd suggest that the OP consider the lens situation. The 24-105mm f/4L is a nice lens, not great, but very nice and affordable. Paired to a 5DMkiii, it is under-classed. But a 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is a spectacular lens. It's the choice of the OP, of course, but were it mine, I'd buy the glass now and let it assist the collection and organization of light because in the end, that's all that matters.
Camera bodies come and go but good glass lasts.
Full disclosure: I own a 24-105 f/4L and lust after the 24-70 f/2.8L II USM.
