There's a reason a 24-70 2.8 is part of a 'trinity'....

A high qualify 24-70 2.8 zoom provides for a great deal of versatility. They are great for so many reasons - travel and events chief among them for me. You probably don't need one if you generally shoot static subjects where you time to change lenses when necessary. If that's the case, you might want a specialty lens like the 135 1.8 instead of the zoom.

For me, I can't imagine not having a quality zoom for vacation travel or for live events where I have to respond to what's happening quickly.

I think the choice probably comes down to how much convenience you want to give yourself.

Finally, not to say people don't like the 24-105 but I think you'll see plenty of reviews that lead to the conclusion the 24-70 2.8 will provide higher quality images than the 24-105.
