I'm sure you aren't alone. Were I in a position to get a FF camera (and were Canon to make one with an articulating screen), I'd have a hard job choosing between the 24-105L and the 35L as my "walk around" lens.

I agree... I would probably choose the 35L but it would not be an easy decision. You could also consider the 17-40L if you want something wider.

The 24-105 is a great lens. I'd go with a fast prime until the new 24-70 comes out.

I seen a few polls and the 35L seemed to be in the majority as there walk around prime. With that said, I also seen many say they wished they come out with a Mark II version.
My suggestion is buy one used, enjoy it, and wait till Canon annonces a II, and put it up for sale to get the latest version. Thats if, of course, you want to go the prime route.

Enjoy your soon to be 5D III

on the 24-70 i feel i may get slightly exposed by the lack of security afforded by the IS.

Then keep your shutter speed up. Pretty east to monitor and a good habit to get into anyway.

Also, the 24-105 is a completely different lens on a full-frame camera. I rarely used on when I owned a 7D, but now I use it on my 5D all the time.

Vote for Tamron 24-70 VC. That stabilizer is absolutely phenomenal. My 24-70L has a bit more contrast but sharpness/flaring/frin​ging is the same. I shoot mostly people so I don't need the stabilizer but it is great to have on a walk-around lens. Tamron loses a couple stops on the edges but that looks just cool to have some "natural" vignetting.

PS. 5DIII takes iso12800 without too much noise so you won't probably need a prime lens for bad light. If you want that mega-thin DOF though, go for the 35/50L.

Since the OP has the 17-55 IS for crop, the 24-105 IS would be the best replacement on full frame. It is equivalent to a 15-65 f2.5 IS on 1.6 crop, which gives you a wider and longer field of view with even more control over DOF on full frame despite being f4. The full frame sensor can easily make up for the stop as well with less noise. For UWA, the 17-40 is a good replacement for the 10-22. Pick up a fast prime to compliment it and good to go.

I've got a 5D3, a 24-105 f4 L and a 70-200 2.8 MkII to go with it but I've just got a new Sigma 24-70 2.8 HSM to give me better low light at the wide end and it's fantastic. I paid just over £500 for it and couldn't afford to go for a Canon MkI which was at least £250 more but after seeing the results from not only the 5D3, but the 60D as well I really don't think I'm going to need to go for the Canon. It's good enough for me as it is.

24-105L and 24-70 are both so boring

Go primes!

How much have you used your 10-22 and are you going to miss the UWA?
You have at the moment a gap between your 17-55 and your 70-200.

As someone pointed out to me once, some of these gaps in lens coverage can be taken care of by moving your feet, this probably falls into that category, it's a pretty small range.

Get a fast prime to really enjoy that full-frame goodness.
