I really like my 24-104 f/4 for general purpose; it's not too heavy and is easy to maneuver. However, at f/4 is does struggle with low light and it often requires a flash. The 70-200 f/2.8 is large, heavy and not easily maneuvered. I didn't think that would be an issue when I first bought it, but the more I used it, the more ease of movement became a factor in selection given a particular project. Both are excellent lenses, however if the 24-105 is your first L lens, you won't be disappointed and can always get the 70-200 in the future. In addition, the "whites" draw a lot of attention.
