I'm about to sell my 24-105/4.0L I got with the 5Dmk2 kit since I have never been able to see any use for it.. and instead I'm going with a 135L. Is there any deviation in quality for these lenses? Anything to look for when buying one?

Generally, prime lenses are much simpler. The 135 L has no moving groups of elements for zoom or IS. This makes it reliable and less prone to some of the defects that happen with zooms. It also makes for less copy to copy variation, but I'd still test a new one.
