on the Sony I have a 16-105 which is of course supposed to be a very good lens, and I'm not sure if that is the problem. Unfortunately Canon don't do a lens as useful as the 16-105 (and you might be surprised at the difference that 2mm makes!).

I'm not saying it will solve your general problem with burnout highlights, but to me it sounds like the Canon EF-S 15-85 has the range you are looking for. Personally I see this as the perfect allround lens. A close to perfect combination of range, weight/size and image quality. And very similar to what you have in range. 35mm equivalent:

Canon: 24-136
Sony: 24-157

Yes, I agree 2mm is a lot in the short end, but the Canon and Sony are similar here. In the long end the differences won't feel as very much.
