I just got the new A1 delivered 2 days ago and am loving the camera, it is just way too advanced.

Question I have is would the 24-105 F4 lens do justice to the camera or better off with the 24-70 F2,8, mostly would be using it for travel.

For travel the 24-105 F4, it's a great lens, excellent sharpness and the extra reach over the 70mm is what you need. I own it and travel a lot and it always delivers. If you do lot's of indoor, 2.8 might be helpful but if not, get the 24-105. For more reach you might even consider the Tamron 28-200mm for traveling and maybe a wide angle prime for architecture / indoor
