I've got an 18-135 on my 60D. That's the full frame equivalent of 29-216. Is the 29 going to be wide enough, or would the addition of a (16)10-22 or (24) 15-85 be recommended down the road.

How wide is wide enough. Is 29 equivalent plenty?

I may not be doing interiors, then again I might. Mostly thinking for landscapes. You think I need something wider than 29 equivalent?

It gives you a huge fov

I like shooting landscapes that mimic the human fov

Food for thought:
Super wides are not meant to "fit more in the frame" they're meant for perspective distortion and they're extremely difficult to compose with.

It all depends on your shooting style, your subjects, and your shooting conditions.

If you like doing the very-wide stuff for the perspective distortions, FF 29mm may not be wide enough for you.

My shooting style does not include the very-wide stuff. For me, 18mm on a cropped sensor and 24mm on a full frame sensor work just fine. While lots of my landscape shots are wide-ish, over half are done with the 70-200mm.

The 10-22 is very well liked on APS-C cameras. If you like your 18-135's image quality, it wouldn't make much sense to get the 15-85, because it would overlap a lot, and the 10-22 would get you a lot more on the wide angle front.

Another option may be the EF-S 17-55 f/2.8. It's practically L quality glass, but they just won't call it L because it's an EF-S mount. I have one on my 7D and it's a great lens.
