Re: Just to complicate the answer....

Like Goanna I have all three of these lenses.
The first lens I got for my 7D was the 24-105, Great lens but not wide enough.
Then I got the 17-55, Another great lens but also range limited.

About a month ago I bought a 15-85 for a little extra reach. Wow, what a surprise!

Maybe I just got a very good copy of the 15-85 but it is sharper than the 17-55 and the 24-105. The 15-85 has not come off my camera since I got it.

I will keep the 17-55 for lower light applications and sell or trade-in the 24-105 for a
70-200 F4L IS.

To answer the original question , if I had to choose between the 17-55 or the 24-105 on a 7D I would take the 17-55 for the wide end. Maybe visit a camera store and
preview these lenses to see which one suits you.
