A new EF-S superzoom
There is really only one lens in Canon lineup that I can't think of a nice thing to say about it, and that is the EF-S 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 IS. From the subpar optics, no USM, terrible build quality, high price and the industry worst “lens creep”. What can I say that's positive?

I have been told that a new superzoom with STM should be expected in 2013. There will be a superzoom for EF-S and and and affordable non-L one for EF, apologies to the 28-300L, but you're too big and expensive for most people to carry around. No mention on the focal length for the EF lens, but a 24-300 would be nice. The EF-S version will get the new STM motor found in the recent EF 40 f/2.8 STM and 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM. Both could possibly be available in the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2013.

I definitely welcome an upgrade to the 18-200, and a nice long walk-around for full frame would be nice too.
