Contemplating changing from 17-55 f2.8 to 24-105 L...should I?

I have the Canon 17-55mm F2.8 IS and I really enjoy this lens because of the sharpness and wide aperture. But I am now contemplating of changing to the 24-105 for the weather sealing and better construction (since I have the 7D now). But I am concerned that it is not wide enough (although I have a Sigma 10-20) for me to use as a walkaround lens. I will surely miss the f2.8 aperture. Can anyone please share with me your experience if you have the 24-105, especially if you once had the Canon 17-55 or other wide angles. Should I take this route?

Thanks.
