PMFJI I have a 10d and have gravitated to prime lenses on it. The light 
zooms are only for snapshots the "fast" zooms are big, heavy and still 
only f2.8.
If your friend wants sharp a big heavy zoom or light prime is 
necessary, if he wants small and light he'll get need to shoot f8 or 
less IME. The 24-85 is OK for that.
The 24 f1.4, 50 f1.4 and 85 f1.8 are all excellent. I also use 135 f2, 
300f4, 500 f4 (sharpest lens I've ever used) and Leica 35, 100, 280, 
400, and 560.
