Why on earth do you think that? The 18-55 STM, the 55-250 STM, the 18-135 STM, AND the 40mm STM all have STM on the end and none are anywhere even CLOSE to that expensive.

I think he may be confusing it to the IS moniker.

These versions jumped noticeably in price, with the inclusion of STM.

Optics improved in them also thought.

Interested in the 16-35 f4 but not desperate to get fleeced over it.

It's a plastic mount on the 10-18, some how I'm guessing it's not going to be 1,000$ and much closer to the 250-300$ target I was thinking earlier in this thread. According to the below, should know within a day.

The 10-18 is interesting, but only if it is <$300. If it's more than that, then I don't really see the point of it, unless the optics are phenomenal. Used UWAs like the Tokina 12-24 f/4 go for around $300 all the time and have MUCH better build quality than the all-plastic 10-18.

more likely they were only introduced at prices similar to those their predecessors were introduced at

So I guess it's official now.

Re: 16-35: For the same price, a used f2.8 lens versus a new IS lens? My 2.8 is sharp enough.

Oh but the new lens has a 77mm thread and, for some, that might make a difference. I paid a pretty penny for the CPL on my 82mm thread and I've only got that one lens that can use it.

Pre-order price is 300$, so should hit 250$ within a reasonable amount of time. That seems pretty reasonable for the market they're shooting for. Now the real question is how's the IQ?

MTFs are better than the 10-22 at both ends. It is slower, though. That kind of puts me off.

I'm sure you're aware that you can buy step-up step-down thread rings right?
They're a handful of dollars each.

Of course... but they're just cumbersome. I'd rather buy separate filters for my lenses or screw on/off filters if I can share them. Then again, at this point in my line up, I'm not sharing filters anymore anyway.

Bigger issue, though - step up/down rings may affect my ability to use lens hoods if I want to. Attaching that 82mm CPL to any of my other lenses means I can't use hoods at all if I want to avoid flare... and if I bump something, then the filter could bend/break.

The 16-35mm seems very tempting especially that i've considered the 2.8 MK II lately after renting it for a 3 day event. UWA with IS, seems like fun handheld walkaround lens at night, the IS does not really help if you're shooting people and need to keep your shutter up though. It also has 2 extra aperture blades over the 2.8 which might make it a bit smoother looking in OOF areas. The price seems pretty good too at $1200 MSRP. I will definitely walk up to BH once they have a few and try it out, or rent one.

Glad to hear about the aperture blades.

Either 7 or 9 is good. 8, or any other even number, gives horrible sunstars.

That's why I prefer the Sigma 120-300 (9 blades) over the Canon 70-200 (8 blades) for almost any urban shot taken at night.

The 10-22 was known for its flimsy build. And this is $300? Amazing. It looks like Canon got sick of the Sigma 10-20, as well as trying to stave off the new Samyang.
