I am aware of the 7D and I am reading that forum also. the cropping does seem to effect people's lens selection.
my thoughts on what i will use the camera for would make me think i will be on sticks, but life experience tells me that it is best to be prepared for any eventuality.
in the back of my mind i can hear the man who i inherited the 5D from saying "when you sell it , you don't own it any more." simple but true
please continue to comment on all possibilities, i am learning and asking myself questions from every contribution.
thank you all

You have to decide what you are shooting. IS is great for handheld stuff where there is enough light to stop your subject but for other circumstances like concert shooting you'll need the extra stop of light.

From a video perspective F4 would be a slowish lens, but because you're dealing with a fairly large sensor the high ISO performance (gain) is better than most camcorders. In any case I wouldn't advocate keeping both lenses unless you are going to carry around two bodies.

I would keep the 24-70. I have both and use both regularly. I like the extra reach of the 24-105 and the IS. I like the extra DOF control and low light performance of the 24-70. For still photography, it's a wash. For video, the 24-70 is my favorite.

One reason is the wider aperture. I like the extra DOF control. While IS is nice, it is of limited value in video. You can only lower your shutter speed so far without having motion blur problems.

Another big negative for the 24-105 is barrel distortion at the wide end. With still shots, it is easy to correct. It's harder with video. It you shoot scenes with vertical lines (wall corners, door frames, etc) near the edge of your frame, they appear distractingly bowed.
