you mean the 17-85mm (and its 27-136)

Yes you are correct. The 18-55mm is equal to 24 - 88mm FF. I was looking at the EF-S 18-85mm lens which will give a 24 - 135mm FF equivalent.

you mean the 17-85mm which is about 3X the size of the STM 18-55 and although sharp given a decent copy has a horrible reputation for distortion and CA . not suprising this lens debuted with the 20D nearly 10 years ago

The 17-85 gives a 27-136mm FOV NOT 24mm , remember the EOS APS is 1.6X Crop not 1.5X like Nikon, Pentax, Samsung, Sigma Merrill & Sony
