It's a can of worms Stu and there's no right & wrong answer. I have both, and prefer the 24 - 70mm when I can, but when the light starts to fall this time of year the IS is a Godsend, and allows me to acheive the depth of field I want, which I could never do with the 24 -70mm. The f/4 is also a much lighter lens which makes it a bit easier to carry around, and then there's the extra 35mm which may or may not be of interest?
But I have to say that if you really want the ultimate in quality you should probably be considering prime lenses, the 24 - 70mm is perhaps as good as the 50mm f/1.4 (there's a marginal difference), but at the wide end I think the 24mm L offering is going to be difficult to beat.
