is the 24-105mm worth keeping? Do any of you know if IS helps a lot for video? I've got primes covering the range... but maybe having everything covered in a single lens would be worth keeping for traveling.

I think you will find that the 24-105 is worth keeping. It is such a good general walk-about lens and for me it produces very sharp results. I use it for landscapes and I am always surprised at just how good it is. I have a few primes, but if I am travelling somewhere and have to take just one lens, this is it.

I've read IS would help video on the 5d2. But as I pointed out in my other thread, the IS start and stop noise is pretty obvious, it was loud enough for me to post and ask questions on it!

So far between my two L lenses, I reach for the 24-105L more, but that's mostly because of weekend diner outings. No complains about it's IQ!
