It is better.  If you can afford it, get it.

If you can do things in PP for the 24-105, well you can do those things for the 24-70II, too.  People talk about vignetting at f/2.8, but it is just a checkbox to correct in LR or ACR.

Not to say you can't take good pictures with the 24-105.  You can.  But a day after getting my 24-70II, the 24-105 went on craigslist.  I'm wondering if I should sell my 70-200 f/2.8 IS II, as well.  To my eye, the 24-70II is just as good at 70mm, and I don't often venture out to 200mm, anyway.

I was concerned about no IS, but that hasn't really been much of a problem.  Think of all those good pictures that were taken in the days before IS.   Sure, it is hard to handhold with slower shutter speeds, but you learn to adjust.  Keep the shutter speed up, like you need to do anyway for moving subjects, and it is a real treat.
