Well, it is now February 2017, hopefully not too many more months and we'll either get complete leaked specs or some official announcement on the 6D2.

It's coming, just not with this round of announcements. I hope to know for sure soon.

ok, thanks
it seems weird to me that they would anounce it separately, not with the 2 new aps-c bodies...
maybe a new crop body later this year? :P

What's special about the 18-55? My old XTi came with one, except it is 3.5-5.6 while this new one is 4-5.6. Must be the motor type? Not all that exciting.
But it is about time to get a new APS-c - the T7 is looking good.

The old Rebel XTi came with a 18-55mm lens, good for 10 megapixel stills, but insufficient sharpness for the current 24 megapixel cameras.

The current 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM was a huge mechanical improvement, with very fast and quiet focus motor, ideal for video but has become bulky.

The new 18-55mm F4-5.6 IS STM is more compact, and should have lower manufacturing cost, although it is not yet known if the image quality will be as good as the current one.

Why don't they make it 15mm wide end like their M kit lens? Luckily there is cheap 10-18mm lens not to bother about wide end.

I always thought that the f3.5 in the 18-55 kit lens was a moot point anyway, it only stays 3.5 until 28mm or less if I remember correctly. Being small and having better corners will be more welcomed by its intended market anyway.

If it does have decent picture quality in a cupcake size, it might be fun just to buy a white-box one for use as a disposable lens. Sometimes I buy some of them dirt-cheap for use at potentially hazardous environment, like in airsoft games or Spartan races where I need to place the camera down to the dirt. (Maybe an action cam is better at the latter one though.
EOS 350D - EF-S Trinity 10-18 18-55 55-250, 24mm STM, 50/1.8II, 70-200/4L
EOS 70D, EOS 5D4 - 18-135USM, 24-105LII 100-400LII
Cheap camera doesn't equal cheap shots. Shoot more, whine less.
