As soon as I heard this announcement I felt it would be the next application of Nano-USM.  The 18-135mm has crazy good AF, but the image quality is unimpressive.  If they pair excellent IQ with the Nano-USM in this lens it could be seriously impressive.

...Therefore I can only hope for Canon's sake that this rumors (also) is about a new EF 70-300 IS (nano-)USM with a decent IQ over the whole range but in particular at the long end. Because after all, that is where most tele-zooms are most often used: at or around the long end. And where they are judged in reality...
This is exactly how I felt after buying my first Canon DSLR, T2i with 18-55 something and 55-250. I was so disappointed with the pictures I figured I had no clue what I was doing. I persevered, learned and got better lenses and better cameras. Now I'm happy with the results most of the time.
To anybody who claims Canon makes great lenses, that is true, but they also make crappy lenses. Many people who start with a first DSLR will end up with crappy lenses and will not continue using the DSLR.
In my opinion Canon should not sell any crappy lenses, they are destroying their brand. No lens should be worst then the 18-135STM, that should be the bottom of the quality standard.
I live wondering:

How is it that in 2016, Canon continues to manufacture some trash, as their 75-300mm?

Judging by the IQ on the EF-S 55-250 IS STM they probably can make a really nice long plastic zoom on Full Frame if they really want to.
The best part is if they come anywhere close to the IQ of the EF-S zoom then this could make a great upgrade over that lens on crop.

I honestly had no idea people were this enthusiastic about low end zooms. No issue with it, I just didnt know there was a market for them.

There probably wasn't until they made them good. The EF-S 55-250 IS STM is very sharp and can be had for very little money.

Very simple: there's money in making those lenses, but none in upgrading them.
