its the best full frame lens made for weddings...the only thing people don't like about it is that they haven't made a version with IS.

no i bought the 17-55mm EF-S for my 50D...it had the IS.

differences:
24-70 is built better (metal vs plastic)
17-55 has IS (3 stops of light better)
24-70 comes with the lens hood ($30 accessory)

Similarities:
Optics
zoom range (crop body vs FF)
performance
size
handling
Color reproduction
contrast

Personally I went with the 17-55IS and I love it. My choice was for low-light and weight, and I've been very happy with it.
