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

Can't speak to the two Canons but that Tamron is a bit a under-rated bargain. We have two, one on a 7D2 and one a 7D.

I can take some shots with one on my 5D4 if you want. Let me know your settings. jpeg/raw etc...
