Cheap FF zoom - Tamron 28-75 2.8, Canon 28-135 or 24-105 STM ?

I am looking for a zoom lens to go with a EOS film camera and possibly a FF DSLR TBA

I am looking used/new and choosing between:

1. Tamron 28-75mm f2.8

2. Canon 28-135mm f3.5-4.5

3. Canon 24-105mm F3.5-5.6 STM

The Tamron has f2.8, which is good for film, but only half a stop under 3.5 and soft in the corners. The Canon 28-135 has good reputation but the 24-105 is lighter and has the wide end, although up to 5.6

Can't really decide. Ultimate IQ is not prime here, more like range and convenience, as film is not so sharp in any case.

What do you guys think ?

Am I missing any other lens ?

Many thanks
