Just to have some flexibility, go for the 24-105L.  It's a great lens and very reasonably priced.  I think if you get another prime you may feel a bit limited.  Buy the 24-105, shoot with it for 6 months and then check out your EXIF data and see what focal lengths you're using the most, buy your next prime based on that data.

That's a very clever idea. The 24-105 is about £600 here in the UK, about $950, and i might be able to stretch to it. How does that compare with US prices?

Cheers, if anything they seem more expensive in the US!
