Here are the pros of each lens:

24-105:

Much better range

Much lighter

Better for travel (range + weight)

Unusually sharp for a kit lens

And sharper than every other 24-105 or 24-120 (and equivalent FL in APS-C & M43) ever made and likely sharper than the $5000 Leica 24-90/2.8-4.

Much cheaper

28-70:

Sharper (though not significantly so IMO)

Much better isolation (this is why the images feel so prime-like)

Much better for low light

Only you can decide based on your usage. If it weren't so heavy and I had larger hands, I would jump on the 28-70. Maybe I just need to go to the gym more often lol.
