Be warned, the non-VR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 G also lacks any lens profile in Lightroom/ACR. And it has a lot more geometric distortion than the 28-75mm f/3.5-4.5 D.

I've been thinking about finding a used Nikon 24-85mm (non VR) to buy to see if I will enjoy that more as a cheap lightweight walk around do everything lens.
Nikon has made multiple 24-85mm lenses. Ken Rockwell has reviewed several:
Nikon 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G AF-S VR (2012-)
Nikon 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G AF-S (2002-2006)
Nikon 24-85mm f/2.8-4 AF-D (2000-)

I'd probably start by upgrading your camera body. The 5D Mark IV's low-light performance is quite a bit better than the Mark II, so you might find that upgrading your camera body to a Mark IV increases the usable ISO enough that the difference in lens speed doesn't bother you anymore. And its focusing system is also considerably better, too.
