    27/28-XXmm (equiv.) lenses are so 1990’s – or today if they’re a tad sharp.

    An 18mm lens on Canon’s 1.6X APS-C sensor’s is equal to 28.8mm on FF. But that’s not half the problem. Super slow kit zooms like this are killing off the APS-C digital format. They don’t provide any way meaningful way to achieve out of focus backgrounds. I don’t know what Canon allows within their narrow blinders, but a achieving an out of focus background, or “bokeh,” is the number one feature selling billions of dollars worth of $1,000 cellphones.

    If it’s impossible to make a cheap, light f/2.8 zoom for APS-C then Canon might as well just wrap it up for good with their stale Rebel cameras. The only way people are going to be able to justify a $600 to $800 camera and kit lens package is if they’re able to achieve the “pro” look (featuring bokeh) that everyone else now expects to see in their photos.

    More than half of all APS-C camera buyers allegedly don’t go on to purchase a prime or even a better zoom once they have their packaged kit lens—so to throw this 29-88mm FF FoV (and f/5.6-9 FF DoF equivalent) lens at this crowd is almost insulting.

    There are relatively easy things that camera manufacturers can do to prolong their existence, and paying attention to what the market is demanding (in this case bokeh) and finding a way to offer it at a low price is the type of low hanging fruit that Canon (and others still designing these cheap garbage kit lenses) strangely refuse to pick…
