    Well I hear IS is bad when using a tripod so its really not that great and also wider is better for landscapes so both lenses are really just as good. Both lenses are great choices so it's really a choice based on price and if you plan on shooting inside some times.

    This is for older generation IS. The modern IS lenses detect when a tripod is in use. And anyway all you do is switch the IS off......

    If you don't need f2.8 the 24-105 is a fantastic lens. I love mine.

    Here's a landscape shot I've taken with it - on a tripod too as it was a long exposure.

    24-70 is a great lens but I already had a Tamron 28-75.I wanted the IS and got a 24-105 which is fantastic and the 28-75 is never on the camera. Even at a wedding I use a fast prime and the 70-200 f2.8L IS more.

    Buit you can't go wrong with either. Oh and the 24-70 is very heavy in comparison to the 24-105. I like that my lens feels nice and light.
