Just announced: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens
The new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens will be offered as a Kit for the just released Rebel EOS T5i and Rebel SL1 DSLRs. It is designed to take full advantage of DSLRs with Hybrid AF systems.

Here are the main specifications:
  • High magnification, compact and lightweight EF-S standard zoom lens with Optical Image Stabilizer for up to four equivalent stops of shake correction.
  • Supports Canon EOS Movie Servo AF feature for smooth and quiet continuous AF during movie shootingby utilizing a new six-group zoom system plus a stepping motor and focus mechanism.
  • One UD lens and one high-precision aspheric lens reduce chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range for excellent image quality with high resolution and contrast.
  • Dynamic IS (Movie Shooting Mode only) delivers a wider image stabilization correction range,ideal for shooting while walking.
  • Manual focus adjustment possible while in AF Mode.
  • Optimized lens coatings ensure exceptional color balance while minimizing ghosting and flare.
  • Inner focusing system, high-speed CPU, and optimized AF algorithm allow high-speed autofocus.
  • Minimum focusing distance: 0.82 ft./0.25m (full zoom range).

Canon have finally added a proper manual focusing ring on the 18-55!

And the nonrotating front element. Took them 10 years to figure that out.

They added FTM as well so you can just grab the focusing ring and go manual without flipping the AF switch...which should be on all lenses anyway IMHO

Looking forward to the IQ reports. This may be the most interesting annoucement of the day. Neither the t5i or Slwhatever excite me...

It's a kit lens. How many kit lens owners care about this?

The aspheric element of the previous version was doing well. I wonder why the switch.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

I imagine that quite a few people on budget would put the money into accessories such as tripods and polarizers, not into lenses. For whoever wants to use a polarizer, the rotating front threads must have been a source of untold annoyance.


Are these two mutually exclusive? I believe they serve different purposes.

Yeah...seems promising. I just got my fiancée a T4i kit with the 18-55 IS II, but depending on how this new one performs, maybe I'll sell the "old" lens and get this one. Quieter AF would be nice, as would the non-rotating front. We shall see...

It might be optically worse than the current lens.

it wont be that


i can only go by what i see here but :

the old one had an RRP of £199 and sold for about £130
the new one has an RRP of £239 (not discounted yet as its only pre order)

and as a kit lens when bundled with a 700D its £130 (diff between body only and with lens) .
the old one as a 650D kit was £100 although now the 650D with kit lens has been discounted more than the body only now so the old lens is now only £60 as part of the 650D kit

I would guess that when the new STM actually is in the shops its will be had for about £150-£160
