Canon 24-105mm OR 18-135 + 24-70mm

Hi All,

I bought 7D with 18-135 kit two weeks ago.

To me about the 18-135mm:
--Good range for walk around
--Saving $200 +battery+UV filter
--Fast focus but too noise.
--Less sharpness

I'm planning to trade-in 18-135mm and get 24-105mm (this is my shooting range). Unfortunately, the 24-105mm is backorder at BH and my local store so they can't tell when they're going to have it in stock. I hate to wait...

My local store offered me 24-70 2.8 + Promaster Proctection filter with $1260. I have heard that the 24-70 is very sharp len. How about 24-105mm? I don't really shoot much in low light condition but IQ is also my priority.

Should I keep 18-135 and get a heavy 24-70mm? or just be patient to wait for 24-105mm...

Please give an advice!

Thanks in advance!
