if i did much low-light event photography the 24-70mm would be it. but as I don't and have a 50mm f/1.4 for those rare occasions when i need something like that, the 24-105mm wins it for me with its versatility. it is lighter, more compact, reaches further, is sharper and has IS for handheld video and dragging the shutter. it's even decent for close-up portraits as i can get more background blur at f/4 on its long end than I can with the 24-70mm at any focal length.
If you could only buy 1 lens, which one would you choose?
