any STM lens is better for video

#1 is Canon 18-135mm STM.  This lens is completely SILENT, and AF as fast as my 70-200 F4 IS

#2 Canon 40mm f/2.8 STM.. cheap $200 new, $120 used. But use micro-stepper-motor and some minor noise is detectable when focusing

#3 Canon 18-55 STM Kit lens.  This just came out with the newest Canon T5i and SL1 DSLR.  Haven't try it out yet, but it should be close to 40mm /2.8 in video.

The new 18-55 STM is much sharper than the current 18-55 IS, according to some Korean review site.  I'm waiting to get my hand on one.
