Kabuto blinded himself cause he knew he didn't need eyesight. Yes he was blind but Itachi didn't use Tsukuyomi, it was the forbidden jutsu: The Izanami. Therefore Itachi didn't use Tsukuyomi

He still used a genjutsu to force Kabuto to end Edo Tensei. Either way he did it.

Well you're right about Itachi using genjutsu on Kabuto but genjutsu on a blind man? A little off. The Izanami doesn't need eyesight to be used. So yea. Itachi used genjutsu. The Izanami works on the physical sense (contact) of you and your opponent. So it doesn't need eyesight. Itachi said it himself.

I'm talking about the genjutsu Itachi used on Kabuto so he could release Edo Tensei.

Exactly. It's the Izanami. Itachi used it on Kabuto in Volume 61 (English) at the end of Chapter 587 (English) of Naruto and at the end of the volume and chapter, Kabuto says, and I quote, "I shall now stop the EdoTensei Jutsu".

Tobi's not exactly a one-trick pony. His one-trick is amazingly useful against anyone not named Kakashi, after all, and he also has a bunch of other techniques that he could use. So, calling him weak just because his signature technique Kamui is useless against a grand total of one person (Kakashi) is kind of wrong. That would be like saying Tsukuyomi is useless just because it can't work on a blind person.
That said, I do agree that Itachi is the strongest Akatsuki member, though, sans maybe Nagato.

Tobi's trick is basically useless against anyone smart enough to figure it out. He lost to Konan (except lol izanagi because we can't have a mere woman accomplish something in this manga, amirite), he would have lost to Minato if he hadn't fled, etc.
