its not a very good lens, if they upgrade the optics to be the same as the 18-55 EF-M it will be a big improvement for this kit lens

Perhaps my fav lens at the moment is my Canon 70-300mm L f/4-5.6 USM IS.  I live in Australia, and its captured a lot of photos in the 2 years since I've had it!

It's great on my 7D, from wildlife to birds in flight to candid portrait to even a bit of motorsports and/or field sports in daylight.  The sharpness, contrast, colours and bokeh are very good - that is: very high imagine quality (IQ). Plus it's very portable and for me an awesome hand-holdable lens (IS helps!) up to the equivalent of 480mm, with snappy USM AF.

My 'fav workhorse' lens is the Canon 15-85mm f/4-5.6 USM IS, which gets the most use. Great range, very good IQ, and USM / IS as bonuses.  Then I have other lenses that I consider more 'specialist' eg Sigma 10-20mm EX HSM and Canon 100mm macro USM.  My 'next' lens will be a fast prime, probably the next Canon 50mm (with true USM?).  The 'favourite' lens I would like to TRY is the new Canon 200-400mm L f/4 USM IS 1.4x... though I doubt I'll buy it (mainly due to size, weight and alleged cost, even though I can afford it..)

Cheers.

I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

EF 400 f/5.6 is the lens I'm most satisfied with.

40 pancake. Image quality is so good! It's so easy and fun to use. Great shots of people, events and parties.
50 1.2L. Soft, but fun. Can't get that look with any other lens.
70-200 2.8L IS II. So sharp, so pro, so versatile.

For all its issues, I still love the EF-S 18-55mm IS for its flexibility, price and weight.  You just have to understand its weaknesses to be able to enjoy this lens at least for casual photography.  I for one can't complain on some of these pics:

definitely great performance per price and good for close up work if you don't need or have a nice macro.
or when you need a lens for hazardous work that's likely to result in, uhm, damage.  Combine with a 2nd-hand Rebel.

Going to have to go with the 24-105.  It is definitely the most versatile lens I own and I can always rely on it for great pictures!
