These three are my most used lenses.
24-105 f/4.0
70-200 f/2.8 II
135 f/2.0
I will purchase a 24-70 f/2.8 II soon and expect that lens to replace the 24-105 on this list.
Not so fast, the 24-105 is a great range, albeit at f4. However in studio shoots, one is usually at F5.6, 8 or narrower... and the zoom range of the 24-105 comes in handy to provide the portrait range of 80-100.  24-70 is a great lens but don;t give up so fast on that 24-105.. plus it has IS!!!

You might be right.  Once I get the 24-70 I'll be able to answer better.  I just imagine I'll be using it for most shots between 24-70mm thanks to its superior sharpness and less distortion, but might miss the range and IS.  I plan to hang onto the 24-105.
Bodies:  6D, EOS-M (22/2 and 18-55)
Lenses: Rokinon 14mm 2.8, 35mm 2.0 IS, 85mm 1.8, 100mm 2.8L IS Macro, 135mm 2.0L, 24-70mm 2.8L II, 70-200mm 2.8L IS II, Extenders: EF 1.4xIII, EF 2xIII ; Flash: ST-E3-RT, 600EX-RT (x3)

I'd keep my 14L II, 24-70II, 70-200 IS II. Can I have an extender?
