Lenses / Re: 24-70 f/2.8L mk 1 or 24-105 f/4L

I've got both.  Like many of the other posters, I generally prefer the 24-105 f/4L because of the versatility and IS.  I don't think my copy of the 24-70 is particularly bad, but I don't plan to upgrade the vII any time soon.

Great photo!

I'm traveling to Japan for a holiday very soon and would like to know people's thoughts on how much/ little gear they take with them while travelling. What focal range do you like to cover? I'm assuming i can leave the 70-200mm at home in the cupboard and maybe just take the 50mm 1.4 & 17-40mm f4...
What do you guys usually go traveling with?

p.s. first time poster, long time reader.

It depends on where you're traveling.  I live in Japan (Kobe), and often go to Kyoto to take pictures.  I usually haul my 10-22, 24-105, and 70-200 F2.8L II.  That last lens is pretty heavy, but I always find myself wishing I had whatever lens I left home that day... so I try to cover the range as much as possible. 

By far most of my shots are with the 24-105.  Depending on what you like to shoot, you might not need the 70-200 but I think you'll probably feel limited if 50mm is the longest lens you're carrying.
