this used to be a popular lens back in the day, rivaling the ef 28-135mm IS USM before the 24-105L and all the aps-c designed lenses came along.

sadly, it has now been discontinued. here are a couple of samples of the old veteran:

Nice lens. My Tamrons are workhorses.

I just picked up a used Tamron 24-135mm f/3.5-5.6 lens for $125. I read the reviews on FM and decided to give it a try before spending lots more on the 24-105L or something else. I've owned the Canon 28-135mm IS lens but didn't think that much of it. It was ok but nothing special and I didn't have much use for it at the time.

I've only had the Tamron lens for a day and only shot about 30 test shots with it, but it seems pretty sharp. At f/3.5 it's rather soft, but by f/4.5 it gets sharp in the center and seems better than my old Canon 24-85mm for sure. At 135mm and f/5.6 (wide open at this length) I was very surprised at how sharp this lens is. I'll try to post some shots soon, but for $125 this lens seems like a bargain.

EDIT: There's a review of this lens here:
