I have to say that I find my 24-70L my most used lens on my 30D. That's followed by the 70-200L. I make very little use of my 16-35L, because I just seem to think in longer rather than shorter focal lengths when visualising shots.

So if had been me asking the same question, then the advise to stick with the 24-70 and 70-200 would be exactly right. But we are all different which makes offering any suggestions to others very difficult.

If you were lucky to get one of the rare 24-70mm L's that are in spec, you have a treasure, don't ever let it go.  I've owned five different 24-70mm l's over the years, and none of them impressed me, my 24-105mm L was noticibly better.

There is likely a element of personal preference here, but there is also a variation in each individual lens, so hang on to it when you get a good one.
