I have the 17-55 and the 24-105L that I use with my 7D and 50D.  Both are great, which is best is hard to say as each has different strengths. Conventional wisdom has said that the 24-105 is not a useful range on a crop, I disagree, it makes a great walk about lens when out and about unless you need to go wide, with the 17-55 I often find I want more reach.

My advice would be try both and see which better meets your needs.
