"There will be more Canon STM lenses, wide angles and telephotos, and they may have image stabilization. In an interview Masato Okada, Executive Officer – Deputy Chief Executive – ICP Group 1 Canon Inc., confirmed Canon’s commitment to STM (Stepping Motor) lenses and videography. As you most probably know, STM lenses focus near to silent, avoiding disturbing noise when continuously autofocusing while shooting video. Mr. Okada said that “it is possible that [there will be] STM lens [with] wider and longer focal length“, and that Canon “consider producing wider and longer STM lenses after passing through optical design process“. Another Canon executive, Naoya Kaneda, Senior General Manager ICP Development Center 1, added: “it’s also possible that STM lenses will be equipped with IS”.

Fantastic. Good that I don't need any new lenses, especially none with IS on the wide end

Are those even possible in a pancake design? I'd guess the 24 would be, but 14 and 85mm?

STM lenses; perhaps of the 'L' nature even, videographers on a budget will swoon, extends the already amazing variety/range of Canon's glass offerings...drives market share higher.

Doesn't much excite a stills only shooter, is this why the loooooong wait for the 7D update, will it be a real Semi-Pro Crop Hybrid Do-It-All...at about $2.5k, another 5D3/1DX consolidation body

That 14mm would be for a much shorter register and probably for mirrorless, possible with the EOS-M but not the DSLRs.

The problem is that the short focal length lenses have to be very close to the sensor, with the rear element about the distance of the focal length, give or take a few mm. Since this is not possible in a reflex camera (ex. DSLR), a "retrofocus" lens design is used that is a version of an reversed telephoto lens. That is why the more extreme the wide angle the longer it is (for DSLRs).

Canon's EOS/EF/EF-S mount register is about a 44 mm distance, much larger.
