Anything new on this lens, or is it just another empty rumour creating false hope? (Canon, can you spell Kodak?)

Sounds a bit strange to me.

Is there a demand by people who shoot video for a 24mm lens with STM? If so, why make the lens EF-S, considering it already made a FF lens with STM?

There WAS a demand for EF-S primes, and L lenses would have been especially nice.

Is there a particular reason that makes EF-S cameras need (dedicated) 24mm lenses?

Is there any reason FF body shooters need a dedicated 35mm lens?

An EF 35mm lens will work fine on crop bodies, as will an EF 24mm lens, e.g. the new 24mm f/2.8 IS USM.

An EF-S 24mm f/2.8 IS STM will not work on FF bodies, hence it's being dedicated crop lens.
