This will be my first L-series, but I've got the f/1.4 50mm prime (very nice lens, really sharp at f/3.5 and higher), a f/4-5.6 75-300, and the crappy 18-55mm kit lens.

I'm primarily shooting food right now, but I want to start some HDR work, too.
If you can rent both, that'd be best so you can decide.

The being said, my personal recommendation would be the 24-105. 17 is VERY wide and prolly not something you'd find useful all too often.

Here's an idea, you might want to click on this link and browse some of the pics you think are very close to the kinds of shots you'd take, then look at what those photogs used. It might be a waste of your time, but meh, we have time..
