Canon 24-105mm replacement?

I've had my 24-105mm for quite some time, and I've enjoyed it. However, I took my 70-200mm f/4L out this past weekend (it's been in my bag for a while) and was amazed how quickly the AF locked and how immensely sharp my photos were. My keep rate was very high, only missing a handful of photos.

Which begs the question: is the 70-200mm f/4L simply a better lens, or is it time to look at a replacement for my 24-105mm?

Three quick 70-200mm examples. Straight out the camera, just resized.

I just sold my trusty old 24-105 today. Sold it to a colleague for a song because he's a good guy and has done a few things for me. I'll be buying the V2 24-105 in the spring.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

I'll start looking at the 24-70mm II. I hadn't heard of the 24-105mm II coming out in the spring, but that's good to know. Might be good to start looking to get rid of the 24-105mm now before prices further drop.

I have the 50mm F/1.2L as well, which I really like. And eventually, I'd like to upgrade the 70-200mm F/4L to the 70-200mm F/2.8L IS II.
