It is unrealistic to expect great optical performance out of a variable aperture consumer zoom lens designed as a compromise. Less than excellent resolution at wide open apertures, substantial linear distortion, and contrast drop off at long focal lengths are to be expected. Nevertheless, there are times when you can only take one lens, and each of the consumer lenses tested has its good points.
The Canon EF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens is light in weight and light on your wallet. If you want a Canon zoom lens and can't spend more than around $300, the Canon EF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens is probably your best choice.
