The 24-105 is a very nice lens but at F4 not low light or indoors. The 50 1.4 will give you a standard view on a full frame. How about select the zooms you mentioned then 1 fast prime for indoor low light The 50 1.4 is soft wide open more so on a full frame. You need to go to F 2.8 for sharp also with a 5 blade design Bokeh is so so. An option a little past the far end of your 24 to 70 would be the 85 1.8 It's sharper wide open then the 50 with a 8 blade design for bokeh with a USM AF motor and easy on the budget at $359.00 at B&H. If your going to pony up for a 6D that might help. With ether the 50 or 85 in your kit you have your fast low light lens. If you use it allot it will tell you if you need to think about more primes. 35mm 1.4 or 135mm F2 Or stick with quallity fast zooms.
