On a 5DIII a 24-70mm f2.8 II or 24-105mm f4 for Washington DC?

I'm right of the verge of purchasing a 24-70mm f2.8 II but I have the 24-105mm already.

I read all the awesome reviews on the 24-70mm, they have the cash back right now, and want it really bad but is it worth it as a walk around?

I plan on going to Washington DC soon and want to take shots of the usual monuments and sights also landscapes at Gettysburg and Blue Ridge mountains and of course night city shots.

What should I do? Will I miss the the IS and reach of the 24-105, or will the 24-70 blow me away so much that it won't matter?

Any thoughts appreciated!
