Big moneymaker, not a surprise

EFS 10-22 = same effective FL as a 17-40 on FF, but sells for more money
($800 vs. $600), with slower aperture and smaller glass.

EFS 17-85 equates to the 28-135. also slower, and less glass -- I think I've heard it will sell for about $100 more than the 28-135.

Canon is providing lower quality lenses at higher costs. Brilliant marketing.

In this interview

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.
