Don't make the mistake I made because I was short of cash and bought a 5D MkII body alone and not the kit. I paid full price for the 24-105 later and lost around 4-500 samolians in the deal.

Its an excellent lens, and the newer 24-70's will be better only if you plan to print big, like beyond 13x19. The distortion at 24 mm can be easily/automatically handled in camera by 6D/MkIII or in post.

I'm starting to think I should keep the 24-105 for now, and then add a fast prime when I get the money
