Pros: f/2,8 and USM, a L lense, indoor with available light. does fit on my 35mm Cam and on the digitals.
Cons:
First I thought price and weight but as it turns out NONE.

I wanted a lens with f/2,8 on total focal length to fit my wifes 40D because of the cross field AF sensor in the middle and second because she does not like flash photography.

Finally I was down to the EF-S 17-55mm IS USM and the EF 24-70mm L USM.

I rented the lens before buying it because a plus 1.000,00$ lens is not what you buy every day.

First I thought the missing IS would be the downsite of the L but IS does not stop motion and my son is a fast one. So skip IS and compare the rest. We have the EF-S 10-22mm so there is not really a need for 17-24mm on your evereyday lense. I did a check of the pictures taken in the past and most of them where between 30 and 75mm (about 85%)

After holding both lenses and mounting them on the camera the decision was clear and we settled for the L lense.

So if your looking for your every day lense and your pocket can afford it - look no further.
