what so special about STM lenses?

They make virtually no noise at all during focusing and are about as fast as USM, so they are good for video work. Recently many of the STM lenses have also received quality glass that makes for very, very good IQ, for very little money when compared to USM equivalents, or there are not USM equivalents.

Well, no, they make less noise than traditional screw drive and buzzy motors in lenses like the 35mm f/2 and 50mm f/1.8 II and are slightly faster at focusing. They are noisier and slower at autofocus when compared to USM, and while they're high IQ, they still don't have the same colors/contrast/coatin​gs and wide apertures (or sharpness on tap at wide aperture, i.e. 50 STM) available. They're great for the money and sometimes sharper than older Canon USM lenses.

I think the only time Canon will actually start taking the sensor deficiencies (when compared to Sony/Nikon), is when all their CEO starts toting around the Sony A7Rii around for personal photos. :lol:

I have both types of lenses, and I see virtually no difference between the two types (and not all USM lenses are created equal either) when doing video. In any case, STM lense are great pieces of gear, especially for those on budgets.

I'm not sure what USM lenses you have, but a 24-70mm f/2.8 II is much faster and quieter at focusing than a 40 STM, which I also own but lend out to family in friends. Even an 85mm f/1.8 is much faster, even though it is a much older design.

That said, yes, they are great for the money, which is what I said in my previous post. Preaching to the choir on that note.

Oh, when doing video. Hmm, haven't used my 40 in a long time for that purpose. I'll have the try it out when I get it back from a friend.

The 40mm STM was one of the first STM lenses, they are a bit better now, quieter and faster. The 50 1.8 STM is better than the 50 1.4 STM, for example. There are different USM designs. The Ls usually have the best USM implementation, but lenses like the 50 1.4 USM and a handful of others can be matched, and perhaps beat out, by STM. In any case, the 40mm STM is not really the poster child of STM lenses.

I know this is a super still camera and I'm certainly interested in it for that, but the 4K 60P video is my drool-worthy feature.

Plus it looks like they finally have a headphone jack... :D

Mine is pre-ordered and the wait begins.

You can't even sell an arm to fund the purchase cos you will need both arms to carry it :(

My one concern with the new specs is that they have gone heavy on the video because they aren't capable of competing with the D5 on the stills in regard to noise/DR. I certainly hope that isn't the case.
