Instead i decided to keep my 28-70 2.8L. I love this lens that I have, it is doing the job. But, would be nice to have something new though!

sooo..... what's the purpose of this thread? Is it just to tell everyone that you passed up on the 24-70? Or did you want advice on something?

ah, my fault! :)

If I posted about each time I passed upon buying a lens, oh boy my post count would be in the thousands. :P

Don't let it bother you. It's not any different from the multitude of threads where someone announces they just bought a lens, and those threads usually have a bunch of folks coming in to say "congrats".

Just before the end of the first post by the looks of it.

I think if the OP had elaborated more there would have been something to give feedback to or discuss, or even argue about, but without that it wasn't going to go anywhere.
