When I was shooting on my 60D, my favorite on camera lens most of the time was the EF-S 17-55mm F2.8 IS. This lens produced some very nice photos. I preferred this one on the 60D vs. some of the other FF designed Canon lens I had in my kit. Had to sell it when I went FF, but fortunately got a very good price for it.

Well we have heard many said 24-105L on 6D/5D2/5D3 is noticeably sharper than EF-S 17-55/2.8 on 60D/70D/7D, and wider and longer.  Creditable tests such as DXO and TDP support that.

I used to own 60D with Sigma 17-50/2.8 OS (that pretty matches to EF-S 17-55/2.8 IS) but I know 24-105L on 5D2 is definitely sharper.
