    If you're feeling flush then there's always the 17-55mm f2.8 USM, a bit shorter than you are looking for but sometimes considered as close to L-glass as an EF-s lens gets...

    Agreed...I had this lens on my 7d MK2...the only lens I missed when I went ff....very sharp corner to corner and f2.8 throughout....

    A little belated... I have the 18-135 and 24-105 f/4L II. They're both great lenses, and the 18-135 holds up very well comparing the two (in another post I mentioned it might even be slightly sharper but I've only really compared at 100mm). I have no hesitation in recommending either, so I'd say it depends on whether you want a FF sometime (I'm thinking perhaps R now... had I waited it might have been the RF24-105 lens instead) or whether you'd miss the wide end. Certainly the 18mm has advantages on occasions, if you only have one lens and want a landscape pic, but I tend to use telephoto in most of my shots.
