i think it has the similar opening of the non-IS one, 3.5-5.6

It's basically the same kitlens with Image Stabilizer without USM.  >:(

around how much? does it come close to the 17-85mm IS?

on the other hand if it comes close to the 18-55 normal kit lens I think its a great addition especially for those who just started with a kit lens. iba talaga pag may IS. minsan mga kit lens lang gamit, baka isip nila mas okay pa mag P&S na high end (with IS and faster built in lenses).

per Internet info, aside from IS, this new lens also has an aspherical element which should produce better images. Tingin ko malayo ito compared sa lumang kit lens.

we'll know this around december :)

amazon price is around $147.

Not sure if the 40D packages now available have this lens... pagkaalam ko body only, lumang 18-55, or 17-85 yung options

nope it's not ok.

i think in the prosumer dslr world, bodies shouldn't come with 'kit lenses' anymore. it should be all seperated.  or packaged with standard made in japan IS USM lenses with metal mounts. that would be better than some crappy plastic kit lens.

The old kitlens also have an aspherical element, There is a sample image at dpreview of the new kitlens using the 40d, The image quality of the new kitlens still lacks contrast and color saturation compared to the more expensive lens like the L lenses in that sample page.

For USD 150.00 I think it's not bad. At least the newbies who can't afford to buy a 20thou lens or a 40thou lens could have a temporary lens that has IS.

But then again they can just use the extra money to get a 50mm f1.8 for indoor purposes for the meantime.

I think the issue is if the extra dough is worth spending when the fact is you will be upgrding soon anyway.

Don't underestimate the Kit lens as long as you know were it sweetspot is its still a very useful lens...
With the built is IS its good as a starter lens and for outdoor too..
Never forget why you started taking pictures in the first place. Excellent technique is a great tool, but a terrible end product. The best thing your technique can do is not call attention to itself. Never let your technique upstage your subject.
