Re: 24-105L is the way to go for OP; maybe add 50 1.8

I think you are talking about critiquing a lens, and the OP is talking about taking pictures.

DXO gives the 24-105 a score of 20 on the 5d3. While 20 is not a perfect score, it is a good score and similar to the 24-70L f/4 or 35L 1.4. It actually fits with about what most users reports on this site.

The 24-105 covers a wide range with a decent constant aperture. I don't know any wide lenses, especially zooms, that are not a bit soft in the corners and edges. CA is easily fixed. For the uses the 24-105 is designed for, I don't think any of your criticisms of the lens will matter a fig when looking at the real pictures with minimal post-processing.
