Can't it be both? I saw that the new Sigma incorporates them both.

It was to expensive at launch. I still think that it will become the successor to the 24-105L. The 28-135 STM is the replacement for old 28-135 USM. When stock of the 24-105L parts or contracts to build parts run low I expect it to be discontented. The 24-75 f/4 L IS will then be sold as an optional kit lens.
Quite often stores decide what they will carry just because it is discontinued at a store does not mean they will no longer be sold elsewhere in Canada. They may have decided to no longer carry them because they cannot sell enough.
Lets face it the 24-75 f/2.8 IS II has a lager audience than the 24-75 f/4 IS. Many buyers of the 24-75 II are upgraders from either the mark I or the 24-105L. If I owned ether of the lens I would not be looking at the 24-75 f/4 IS. The 24-105 f4 is still cheaper in may markets and has a better range.
I expect that a full frame upgrade will include on sensor phase detection and video features similar to the 70D. The 28-135 STM will likely be a kit lens. Who knows this camera could be the 5D IV, 6D II, or some full frame rebel for all I know. I halfway expect a Full frame rebel before the 6D II.
Quotebut it doesn’t really plug any holes in the maker’s range.
Man, what do those guys think...
The Canon EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM is a 300€/$ lens that allows beginners and people with a normal budget to get into UWA.
I believe this is a really clever addition in Canons lineup meant for those double zoom kit buyers to at least buy a third lens and then get hooked. And it is small and light. And it will sell well.
