$900 for an EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS, and you might as well get some JB Weld and fix 'er on there because it might be the only lens you'll ever need for that camera. Well, until you need telephoto, anyway. And then get yourself an EF 70-200mm f/4L for a paltry $600.

Re: New compact Canon 4K video camera?

It seems to me obvious that Canon will come out with 4k cameras later this year having seen what Sony, Panasonic and JVC have got right and wrong. I'd expect the range (to be announced at NAB?) to be very similar to the current tape-less HD cameras:
1) an XA25-sized camera recording to the latest, fastest SD, but probably with similar data-rate limitations to the Sony AX100;
2) an XF100/200-sized cam with 4k@60P (recording to what cards?), possibly with a modest zoom-range to meet size and weight targets;
2) an XF300-size record-anything, output-everything monster.

The one thing I fervently hope is that the brilliantly-useful zoom-speed control-wheel, found on the XH-A1 and XF300, but missing from the current XF100, is included in the medium-size camera this time.

I'm looking forward to better-than-average 4k and the best possible 1080 from a camera much the same size as an XM1, that's as easy to use as the XH-A1, and with that camera's sensible and trustworthy auto functions (when you need auto, you must to be able to rely on it)
