Lense Recomendation

My standard all purpose stock lens which I did not like very much just gave out. on my Canon T1i.

I need a new all purpose lens. Thinking of getting the Canon EF 24-105 f/4L IS USM.
What do you guys think of this lens. I don't want to spend 500+ then find out that it is not a good lens. I am also thinking of upgrade the camera body (maybe)

Just for everyday use. I have a 100 mm f/2.4 macro that I use to take tank pictures. In the olds day I used a fix 50 mm 1.4 lens for standard lens ( 1980) but I am spoiled with zoom lens these days.

F4 is kinda slow that 24-105 is best suited on a ff camera. What's the budget? I had the 24-105 love it but wish I kept it would be great on my new camera. I personally have a 24-70 as my main walk around.

I get more use out of my 18-135 lens than anything. It's the kit lens for the 70D, IIRC. It's an f/3.5-5'ish lens.

Look at the offerings from Tamron and Sigma while you're searching. They have some really sharp lenses that are as good/better than Canon lenses for much less cash. Not all of their stuff is worth buying, so research it before pulling the trigger.
