I am looking for suggestions on a zoom lens for my Canon RP. I have the 35mm IS, but would like to get a zoom for general use, travel (post COVID), etc.

My initial thought is the 24-105 RF, but I was never all that impressed with the old EF version I've also thought about getting the EF>R mount adapter and going with either an older Canon zoom, a third party, etc.

Curious to hear what others are using as their general purpose/walk around zoom on the R mount. Thanks in advance for any advice and insight!

The RF 24-105 f/4L IS is perfectly fine on the RP and it is the one I would choose, good sharpness, good size and handling (the f/2.8 zooms are getting front-heavy), very good IS for video as well.
The other option would be the EF 24-70 f/4L IS, but with the adapter it is not really smaller or lighter than the RF.
