Thanks for the replies everyone.
I have the 24-105 and I've used it on my 60D for video. It works ok... and yes you should use ISO speeds that are multiples of 160. I eventually ended getting a 35mm 1.4L. Much better for video. I now exclusively use that and the 50mm 1.4 for videos.
Thanks. I've already got the 50 1.4 & 85 1.8, with a 28 1.8 on the way too, which will do most of the low-light stuff with the 5dmkII. However I'll still want a walk-around lens too for weddings.
The 24-105 will be great if a lot of what you shoot is outdoors, but, its going to be unusable indoors on your 60D, and limited on the 5dII. I guess it depends a lot on what you shoot, but generally speaking, you are better off using low-light primes for flexibility with video, and either having a rig or a tripod involved.
The IS is certainly nice to have if you're shooting a lot of run and gun stuff, but, you'll have to decide if it limits you too much.
I've already got some primes and a tripod & proper video monopod, but I don't have any IS lenses, & there's definitely times I feel I need one. I understand the limitations of low light videography, and have used the 17-50 f/2.8 on th 60D in plenty of reception halls so know what to expect from it. If the 24-105 on the 5dmkII will give similar results in terms of noise/ISO performance, then I can live with that (and use the primes when I can't live with it!). Do you think the 5dmkII at f/4 at say, ISO 1250 is comparable to the 60D at f/2.8 & ISO 640, regarding noise?
