A 1/250th or 1/300th sync speed would be pretty sweet.

An STM lens. Really. That's pretty weak for what is presumably a best-in-class APS-C rig in the $2k neighborhood. STM is fine for video, and it's also nice upgrade over the squeaky slow AF motors of the older entry level Rebel kit glass, but 7D2 still shooters would want the speed of USM, right?
Are they legitimately going after pro wildlife/sports guys with this rig or just enthusiasts who want a high burst rate? Surely the days of kitting this with a relatively average lens are over, aren't they? (I recognize that the people drooling over a 7D2 likely already have a lot of glass, but the same could be said at the launch of the 5D3 and that had a decent lens kit option...)
Just riffing here: any chance Canon kits this with a really solid L lens? I recognize that a 24-something zoom lens will be too long on the wide end for a standard zoom. So...
Kit it with a 16-35 F/4L IS?
Kit it with a first-ever L lens in an EF-S mount? An EF-S 15-50 F/4L IS? An L-quality update to the 17-55 F/2.8 IS?
Kit it with the Sigma 18-35 F/1.8?
While it's not "the best" it comes REALLY close to being that when excluding the super tele's. At least for sharpness, distortion, CA color, contrast AF etc.
But here's a quick look at what it compares to against an 18-200 Sigma.
My price prediction: $999.99. It's like a staircase of $50 increments from the 35mm to the 50 mm to the 85 mm.
n=2 data points are hardly enough to suggest further data points.
it needs only 2 points to draw a straigth line...
so it is entirely possible.. the question is how accurate predictions based on this will be.
It does sound like "the year of lenses"Yes, and September sure is taking forever to get here!
