My first experience with Canon EF-S kit lenses was in 2005 when I bought a 350D specifically to take on my travels around SE Asia. At the time I was working for a newspaper but my boss wouldn't allow any of my issued gear to leave the country. I was issued with a 1D MkII and 20D as a back up. I also had access to some the best Canon equipment available at that time.
I really never used the old EF-S 18-55mm that came with my 350D. Took a few 'test' shots and put it in a draw. My daughter now has my old 350D which still works fine, but the old kit lens is long gone.
18 months ago I bought a EOS M for primarily for its video capabilities. I also bought an EF-S 18-135mm STM not long after buying the EOS M. I was quite amazed with the image quality for both video and stills, and it works great with my 50D and 20D. I've also got a few fast Canon primes including the 135L.
Late last year I bought a 700D. The plan was to use it as a travel camera as I prefer to travel light, and general purpose camera. It came with the 'new' EF-S 18-55mm IS STM which is quite a good lens. Heaps better than the 'old' EF-S 18-55mm. I've hardly used it and I'll give it to a friend who still has the 'old' 18-55mm.
Last weekend I bought a EF-S 10-18mm STM. I'm quite impressed with this lens. Great value for money and heaps of fun to use for both stills and videos. I know the 10-18mm STM isn't quite a kit lens but for me it fits the mold.
My wife and I are off to Ubud in Bali in about a month. I'll be taking the 18-135mm STM, 10-18mm STM and 40mm f/2.8,, along with my 700D. Normally I'd take a swag of fast Canon primes and my Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 non VC.
A long post I know, but where are Canon kit lenses heading in the future? What can the consumer expect?
