Best on 5D: Sigma 24-60 or Can 25-85?

I'm going to try a full frame Canon 5D after years with Nikon, Pentax and Sony cropped sensor bodies. I travel and backpack a lot and am willing to accept the drawbacks of zooms for the flexibility and convenience. I shoot mostly wide shots of people in groups (not necessarily portraits) and landscapes.

Has anyone owned or compared these two lenses against each other? They are within my budget and customary zoom range. I fear the former is discontinued, or about to be discontinued. gp
