Canon Len Lineup: Only one EF non-L normal zoom

The talk/rumor of an "inexpensive" FF camera from Canon got me to wondering if pending kits would pair it with only L zooms or another more inexpensive option. I reviewed the current line up of lenses to discover that there is only one EF non-L normal focal length range zoom currently being sold; the EF 28-135mm USM IS.

I used the 28-135 extensively in my film days and always was happy with the results. However, it seems that this lens is only bundled with crop cameras these days.

If Canon does come out with a more modest FF body, will they only pair it with the 24-105mm L or will they perhaps come out with a new lens to pair it with?

Also, is it lunacy to use current the 28-135mm with the current FF bodies; anybody do that and happy with the results? Based on my film usage with this lens, I would expect decent results on the current FF bodies but perhaps my expectations are not as high as others.

Photographic hack since 1969.
