the two STM lines that canon has rolling out it are intriguing. they aren't as gear happy exciting as others, but quietly canon has implemented a couple of nice lines across both the EF-M and EF-S platforms.

the EF-S STM IS line is lightweight, economic and compact for a DSLR form factor - making an SL1 kit stand pretty close to a smaller registration distance system in terms of overall kit size. it makes probably the best lineup from 10mm to 250mm out there in APS-C form factor in terms of cost and IQ - you really can't beat that line at all.

The EOS-M STM line is taking that down even further, by having the smallest kit from 11mm to 200mm available in the market - all with very good IQ and cost and diminutive sizes even against it's peers.

Agree 100%.

Canon's recent budget lenses (all STM) are practically all best in class:


40mm, 10-18, 18-55, 18-135, 55-250


11-22, 22, 18-55, 55-200

Am i forgetting any?

They are all reasonably priced. Some are all plastic but it is good plastic with no wobble.

They are kit lenses in the best sense. Optically very good so you do not need to upgrade to get better image quality. Expensive lenses are there if you need faster apertures, exotics, or pro build. They are the best reason for the less well-heeled to buy Canon.
