Canon had a 24-85 kit lens that it sold with the ill fated IX-APS series. It was a good - or a terrible - lens depending upon which physical lens you got and the variety was an insult to quality control techniques.
Then came the 28-105 with the A2/A2E series and later the 28-135IS. Ignoring the "L" lenses, Canon has
tried this range again and again (don't forget the terrible 28-90 throw-aways that came with film Rebels).
Maybe this time they'll get the lens right - but I'll bet the price will be wrong.
It will all depend on the wide end, which is crap on the 24-105 and was crap on the 24-85. If they can't get the wide end right, reviewers will pan it and nobody will want it.
