I have the Canon 17-40L in my bag. Now, I used to think that it suited my needs. After shooting a few thousand photos with it though, and doing what I'm doing, I'm starting to see it's flaws. The corners can be soft. Vignetting is a pain if you use a 105mm polariser plus a grad or two etc.
Not sure about your other choice.
One thing you need to remember is when you are doing both portrait and landscape you need a decent lens with an aperture that goes all the way through the focal lengths. This is why I suggested the 24-70L F2.8.
What you could do is what I did, as I didn't have the cash at the time. Find a 28-70L F2.8. It is the very first generation but the lens is still damn good. I use it a lot. Mine cost me about £500.
