650D and STM lenses - Consensus?

Is there enough first-hand experience at this stage with the new camera and lenses to start posting some questions and answers in the unofficial Rebel forum FAQ? ( http://snipurl.com/RebelFAQ )

I'm thinking things like -

  • How good is hybrid AF?

  • Is the 650D worth the price premium over the 600D? (Or, What should I get - 650D, 600D, or 550D? For stills? For video?)

  • What are the benefits of STM? (How does it compare with USM? Can you do FTM with it?)

What other Qs about the new technology are FA?

What are your answers to those questions?

Note: I'm not interested in speculation and promotional claims, just what you know from using the gear yourself, compared to previous models.
