New Kit Lens? [CR2]

From the world of wacky
Received an email stating Canon would be adding another kit lens to the Rebel kits.

It would look something like: EF-S 18-120 f/3.5-5.6 IS

I don’t think a kit lens between the 18-55 and 18-200 would be such a bad idea.

Big grain of salt on this one and add some pepper.

  1. I would not mind in-body stabilization despite the fact that I have spent a lot of money on 70-200 2.8 IS and will soon buy another IS zoom, I also have a few primes that I like (including my favourite 85mm 1.8) and I’d love to have some kind of IS for them, even 1-, 2-stop one. Face it, with 3-stop IS for 70-200 I can shoot 80mm at 1/25s easily, on the other hand with my 85mm prime I have to shoot at 1/100 or so (maybe a tad slower) to be sure of a sharp picture and a lot of aperture advantage that 85mm 1.8 had over 70-200 2.8 gets lost in the process.

    2-stop IS system in the new 500D or whatever will come next (60D or whatever) would make me upgrade my “ancient” 400D, I could not care less about a movie mode or some fancy articulated screens.

  2. Both Pentax and Olympus sell kit lenses that are similarly priced without rotating front elements.

  3. It has to have ring USM and non rotating front. Nikon do it with all there DX kit lens why can’t Canon.
