If they're good, that's great.

The new Sigma 18-125 (28-200 effective on a 1.6x), is stunningly good in comparison to my Tamron 28-300 (I know the Tamron is more of a hyperzoom, but 200 vs. 300 is a bit of a mute point). And they kept that in a standard EF mount for Canon (thankfully).

The new 17-85 IS EFS is from everything I have seen and read and heard, is very soft.

Canon's representative seems to see a bright future for EF-S
lenses. It does not make me too happy - I use my film camera quite
a bit (intend to buy full frame DSLR as soon as the cost becomes
reasonable) and will buy only "full frame lenses". I am afraid that
there will be fewer new, "normal" lenses available.
