I took the new EOS Rebel T5i out earlier this week with the new 18-55mm IS STM kit lens. I've posted some pics on our blog http://handbdigital.blogspot.com
and elsewhere http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/51309377
, but thought I'd share a few different ones here.
I was really impressed with this setup given the price and intended market. The T5i delivers great JPEGs right out of the camera. The STM lens focuses quickly, is capable of some nice detail and background blur, and even has some pleasing bokeh (ok, you purists can criticize, but for a kit lens intended for a Rebel body, they quality is fantastic).
I'll be putting zoom samples in the Lens Forum. I'll also try and take some low light pics at some point, but I'd expect them to be fairly similar to the T4i.

Notes on the images:
1) Nice and sharp, great colors with the typically difficult reds, good contrast, and high quality bokeh (no polygonal edges, circles of uniform density). 1/320 sec. at f/5.0, ISO 100, at 46mm, 1.5 feet from subject. No crop or post-process.
2) Another sharp shot, the light greens a little washed but metering is otherwise accurate and colors fantastic on the flower. Bokeh a tiny bit muddy, but what do you want?!? 1/800 sec. at f/5.6, ISO 200, at 55mm, 2 feet from subject. No crop or post.
3) The closest I got to a portrait... Greens are great, this camera is awesome for street shooting. 1/320 at f/5.6, 55mm, 8.6m from subject, small crop (straightening).
4) Super detail and great distinguishing between various yellows, which some cameras have trouble with. 1/640 at f/4.5, ISO 200, at 32mm, 4 feet from subject.
