I had 18-55 IS II with T3 for my first DSLR. Never use it after get 17-40L,because of the slow and noisy AF, I will give new STM a try after good experience with 40mm stm
I hope more efs lens in the line-up.
make the 18-55 stm fix aperture or faster(2.8-4.0)
18-200 stm
small fast prime
update 60mm macro with IS
longer telephoto zoom or prime lens

My wife and I are off to Ubud in Bali in about a month...

You're right. Here are some taken around the 'hood in Bali with the kit 22F2 pancake lens.

i'd imagine all the current EF-S lenses that aren't STM will be replaced with STM.

I'm not so sure.

I can't see the 15-85 or 17-55 going STM. Nor the 60 macro.

yeah, i somewhat agree...since they are already USM...but there was a rumor recently about the 15-85 becoming STM and being a kit offered with the new 7D...so we'll see

I think we'll be seeing any non-USM lenses go the STM way in the future, whether EF-S or not. Re: a 15-85 STM, if Canon ever replace the standard 18-55 kit lens with a lens with a wider range (15-85, 18-70, whatever it is), I'm sure it'll be an STM.

This is a possibility.

Is that latest STM version kit lens, 18-55, 55-250, 10-18 have better built quality compare to old design?
I had old version 18-55 that easy collect dust inside the lens, not effect the IQ much, but just annoying when cleaning.

The build quality is not great, yet sufficient for many of us, including me. I don't think I will ever wear my STM lenses out.

I don't get much dust in my lenses, and the small amount that does get in also gets into the expensive 17-55/2.8.

That why I prefer L lens, I am not professional, my main activity is outdoor adventure. My lens collect dust very fast if no any sealing. Non L prime normally less problem, but zoom lens is worse. Latest 55-250stm and 10-18stm is cheap, I will try for it after purchase a crop body.

Canonrumors is reporting that Canon may introduce a new EF-S 24mm f/2.8 at Photokina. Maybe a pancake. I'm going to assume that if it is a EF-S AND f/2.8, it should be a pancake design, otherwise doesn't make much sense. Would be THE perfect walkaround for smaller DSLRs like the SL1.

I'd like something wider.

I'm loving my 10-18mm STM for video, especially the 10mm end. Something like 10mm f/3.5 IS STM would be perfect for me. I wouldn't even be bothered if it had a plastic mount.

Yea, unfortunately the 16mm FOV probably wouldn't be too popular for this rumored lens's intended audience.

I think a 35ish mm FOV is perfect in a prime for most users of Rebel series DSLRs, as it basically mimics the FOV of most cell phone cameras, so folks are used to that.
