EOS 20D and Drebel kit lens confusion - Photography

Hi, Just wondering-- Anyone know why some of the kit lenses (18-55mm) that come with these two cameras are shown as "USM" (ultrasonic focusing motor) and some are not?? Is one more desirable than the other? Should this be taken into account when looking to purchase either of these two cameras? Thanks! M....

    Default EOS 20D and Drebel kit lens confusion

    Hi,

    Just wondering--

    Anyone know why some of the kit lenses (18-55mm) that come with these
    two cameras are shown as "USM" (ultrasonic focusing motor) and some are
    not??

    Is one more desirable than the other? Should this be taken into account
    when looking to purchase either of these two cameras?

    Thanks!

    I think the USM are newer models, if your from the uk Jessops don't take non
    USM canon lenses in part exchange.

    Actually the USM lenses use a silent focusing motor while with regulars
    lens, you can hear the motor as you focus.

    USM lenses are quiet when focusing. Non USM are noisier. That's it in a
    nutshell
