The new Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM already got Photozone’s attention.
In the conclusion, Photozone writes:
The mirrorless gang may have all the attention at the moment. However, Canon showed once more that the quality crown still belongs to DSLR systems – even and especially regarding low cost lenses. The Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM may be very slow but it is darn sharp in the relevant aperture range. In fact it is every bit as good as the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM here … at half the price! The amount of lateral CAs is well controlled. In critical scenes (e.g. architecture) you will be able to spot some barrel distortions at 10mm but we’ve seen a lot worse here. The only significant weakness is vignetting especially at 10mm.
Yeah, Canon once more showed what they can do with this lens.
