...and the winner is....

After some research and some much needed advice I am now the owner of the Canon 24-70mm f2.8L Lens.
Finally I got hold of a virtually brand new lens, in absolute mint condition all for the very resonable price of £550. Cheap in comparsion the the listed price of just under £900 and the average Ebay price of £650.

To finance (in part) the cost of the new lens I've parted company with my Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens.

I have been comparing 24-70 and 24-105 for a long time before. Amidst other comments that 24-70 is not very much a travel lens due to its weight and size, my personal take is that this is very individual.

24-70 is great, especially with its 2.8 botek. It offers flexibility. Drop down to f/11 for landscape at 24mm (on my 5D), and f/2.8 to get a few people shots. I think it's a great choice u have there.
