You might also consider the

Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 VC.

A wide f2.8 aperture and image stabilization.

dpreview today released their review of the Tamron 24-70 and it looks like it's very impressive. The only fast 24-70 (or close) with image stabilization. I sold the 24-105 when it came with my 6D because I do too much low light shooting and didn't want to have a zoom required other lenses at night. I'd rather get the f/2.8 and have a single travel lens when I need to go with just one lens. If I can go with multiple lenses then I'd rather use primes, so the 24-105 wasn't going to get used by me. And the Canon 24-70 is outrageously priced given the way it scores against the Tamron.
