I have both the 24-105f4L & the 24-70f2.8L for my 5D2. I really don't use the 24-105 much owing to its slow max aperture. My style involves a signicant proportion of shots around f2.8. I like the subject isolation at relatively close range. While the IS can be useful sometimes I find the need to freeze subject movement means higher speeds anyway.

As for weight, I don't find the difference significant...esp as my grip is always on.

I think in the end it boils down to what you shoot, individual style and what floats your boat. And for my own style the 24-105 just doesnt hack it.
