If you want to use it on a "older" film body go for the 28-135. most save option. Other option the EF 24-104 F4 L mkI perhaps?

The newer third party lenses can cause issues with older (pre)digital bodies.

I do have issues with some Sigma's on our Canon Eos 1 and 1N's but not on the Eos 3. So test the lens before buying it

The newer Canon EF STM lense like the 24-105 should work, but if you read the manual when using the lens (24-105 STM) with film-based SLR cameras:

●The drive speed of the focus lens will be slower than when the lens is used with a digital camera.

●Images will appear out of focus when using the camera’s internal flash while it is charging or when zooming during exposure for still images.

●Even when the camera is ON images may appear out of focus when zooming if this occurs press the shutter button half way while zooming.

●After focusing in ONE SHOT AF mode and zooming by holding the shutter button halfway, the camera may indicate that the AF mode has been changed to manual focus (MF) mode.

●During continuous shooting zooming may slow down shooting speed.

●There are some cases when users must wait approximately 1 second after zooming before the auto focus will function

very informative, thanks for the post
