17-40 and 24-105 compared

Hey, I have considered trading my 17-40 towards a 24-105. I have found myself switching between the 17 and the 70-200 4L more than I would like when I am doing portraits. I will miss the wide end a little but not enough to make an argument I think. How do they compare as far as sharpness, color/contrast, etc. The 17 that I have has proven to be very sharp. Color/contrast are very nice as well but just a notch under the 70-200. Anyone use both and have a direct comparison? Thanks.
