Are you going to move to FF soon?  If not, actually both are not designed and optimized for APS-C bodies.

24-105L performs about the same as EF-S walk-around counterparts on APS-C bodes but one-stop slower than 17-55/2.8 or third party 17-50/2.8.  24-70L II will likely perform better but not wide enough and largely wasted its potential at such hefty price.

If you move to FF soon, my suggestion is still get a combo deal with 24-105L which is an excellent 4.375x walk-around zoom at very attractive price from the kit deal.  I still keep my 24-105L even bought 24-70L II recently as its extra 35mm reach, lighter body and especially having 'IS' are still useful.
