Re: Advise on EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM and EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM

I have BOTH. The 24-70 2.8II focuses faster. Both lenses are DEADLY sharp wide open. The 24-105 F4 is 95% as sharp, BUT only at 50-70MM. At 24MM, it has some issues. I need 2.8, and DEADLY fast AF, so I use the 24-70 for weddings, and the 24-105 for hiking (esp since it has IS)

For landscapes, I use the 24-70 2.8II since it is as sharp (to my eyes) as the primes in that range once you get to F4-5.6.

Amazing lens, and PAINFULLY expensive!

I currently own a EOS 450d. I own a Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 Pro DX II Lens, canon standard 18-55mm f5.6 and 50mm f1.8. I have looked into EF24-105mm, though there are pretty good reviews, quite a number recommend EF24-70mm  instead. Please advise!
