The image looks like a crop of the drive gear for a cinema/video lens...

Keep searching for NessieNessie was a hoax. It was not real.... Something mythical that people searched for year after year......
Completely unlike the 7D2
I really liked the idea of a new 24-85. But it will depend on the price, IQ and the size/weight.
The 24-105L is too big and heavy in my eyes and the 28-135 is not wide enough (and big, too). My old 24-85 is a nice small and capable lense and a *real* alltime-workhorse. Of course it's not fast or even weathersealed, but it's sharp from f5.6 on to at least f11 and the USM is fast and nearly silent. I shortly thought of replacing it with the 24-70L4, but the L was too big anyway.
It's one of the few lenses I would never get rid of. I just wonder why the new one will be 3.5-5.6 as the old one is 3.5-4.5. But that's most likely because of the longer IS-calculation.

Definitely looks more like the S120 and RX100 than the current G1X or even G16.Layout looks more like an S1xx series camera than a G1X successor. If it is a G1X successor, then the compensation dial is gone and adjustments are done via the universal dial in the rear. That would be strange.
Funny you should say that.... I have a Snowy Owl hanging around and hope beyond all reasonable hope that by the time my lens (pre-ordered a month ago) arrives, that Snowy will still be around....
Even funnier, as I am waiting for a LONG!!! lens for birding, I was wandering around yesterday shooting Chickadees at 24mm.... yet I use them as justification for 600mm....
Lucky you! I've encountered one owl in the wild here, and had a great timing getting shots of it!! That was a winter ago, however, and I only had the 300mm reach of the 70-300L.
There could be design optimizations for video (e.g. parfocal behavior) that give it a major leg up, even if its pixel-level sharpness isn't quite tip-top.
I know Canon often introduces new features in lower-end products, e.g. dual pixel AF in the 650D then 70D, but I doubt the first parfocal lens would be a low end super zoom.
When people are talking about the image quality from their 55-250 lenses, are they actually comparing the same lens? What's the difference between the original and the II version?
I've got a refurbed II that I purchased for about $200 from Canon. I'm happy with it and it complements my EOS-M and SL1 nicely. It's not quite the same as my 700-200/2.8 on my 7D, but it's a nice lens and much more compact. I think the image quality is very good for the price.
Does anyone make a comparable, but better image quality, EOS-compatible lens in this price range?
