No problem Jeff as it'd only be fair to review as such with the new Kit lens.

Jeff's the man; I trust him implicitly. I'm just confused about the "new" kit lens; why is there no mention of it on Canon's website? (there is no mention of a 18-55 F3.5/5.6 II lens. Can anyone find any documentation that it's indeed an improved version of the dReb kit lens?

Apparently it's a secret... in the manual it lists it as the "II" lens... but nowhere else. You can't buy the lens by itself, either, which makes things that much more difficult for me.

Hey Jeff,

You don't have to fall all over yourself apologizing for a delay like this.

We understand.

I'd love to read your final reaction to the new lens anyway.

Take your time and don't sweat it.
