Talk me in or out of this...Sell my 16-35ii and 24-105 and buy a 24-70 ii

I'm seriously thinking of selling my 16-35 and 24-105 to get a 24-70...

I'm finally going to upgrade my 5Dii to a 5Diii so I don't have much cash left for new lenses, but I'm really thinking about this.

I love the "walkaround" of the 24-105, but I find f4 makes it such that I don't trust it indoors. While I do enjoy ultra-wide I find that many of my 16-35 shots end up from 24-35 because it becomes my lower light walkaround lens. So that has made me realize that I should consider this move...

I will still have my 15mm 2.8 FE for ultrawide, I have the 24 1.4 ii and the Sigma 50 1.4 for ultra low light and the 70-200 2.8 ii.

So really the question is, will the mk3 make me feel better about the 24-105 indoors, or should I get the 24-70ii now, and if I really miss wide, but a 14mm next time I save up the cash?
