Best 24-something zoom for RP?

I'm intending to get myself an RP. It's small and light, and I'm tired of carrying around my 5D2 with 24-105 L at my age. But I like the IQ and versatility of my EF 24-105 L. I'm sure the RF 24-105/4 L is the best option IQ-wise but it's quite heavy compared to the RF 24-105 STM. And more expensive of course. Now my question: how much worse is the IQ of the STM lens compared to the L? Or, if considering another option, how much worse is the RF 24-240 between 24 and 105? With the non-L lenses I can keep my 24-105 L and use with adapter if I feel I need it. The 24-105 STM is the most light-weight option, The 24-240 has longer range and I might get rid of my EF 70-300 non-L which I don't like anyway. Another option I've been thinking of is a Fuji Xt3 with 16-80 but this combo is of similar weight and size as the RP with 24-105 STM, so I dropped that.
