Which Lens 24-70 or 24-105 ?????

After much back and forth I am still undecided about these lenses and which one to buy.

Okay, I know the 24-70L is heavier and has one extra stop, but then I thought this is easily offset by using a higher ISO and I asked myself would this lens be the one I would use for sport and nature.The answer was no of course, so what would be the advantage of the extra stop,I don't know,equally I thought is the IS of any real benefit..........maybe..........I don't know.
Reviews on the internet are no help.

I have found one that claims the 24-70 is superior in what counts most and that is in the sharpness and yet after looking at his photos I could not find one site that supported his findings.

The majority said they could find very little differnce but I have to say that in the only sample comparisons I have seen the 24-70 does appear sharper.

So, what's the truth in real life ???
I need some help here as this will be my next purchase to compliment my 100-400
