If I were you, I would start with the 24-105. It's got a very useful range on full frame, and is quite sharp. The IS is very effective, even though not the latest generation. I can handhold down to about 1/5 at 24mm on my 7D. On full frame, you could go even slower. With the low-light capabilities of the 6D, or 5DII or III, F4 shouldn't be too much of a limitation. I would then think about the new 35 F2IS (I'm considering replacing my 35L with that, if it's sharp wide open). With 4 stop IS, you could shoot in near darkness, if you wanted to. This is just my opinion. One of these days, I'll actually get a full frame DSLR, and will then be able to give a more informed opinion.
