I decided that the f/4 wasn't bright enough in low-light and indoors, even with IS, so I passed on it. Had the 24-70 for a year and a bit, wanted IS but didn't want to give up f/2.8, gotten the 17-55. Much happier now.
it's a fantastic lens, it's a shame they didn't make it with an EF mount or I would have purchased it. It literally takes care of all problems.
