    USM? Have you tried to google or look on the Canon website? You would know that Canon calls their VR system "IS".

    Also, please specify which lens on which canon body.

    As for the prices, you have over 1,000 posts and haven't found the pricelists section yet?

    USM stand for Ultrasonic Motor which similar to HSM in Sigma which stand for High Speed Motor. This is a technology whereby enable your lens to focus with good speed and low noise.

    VR stands for Vibration Reduction.

    EF lenses can be mount on all Canon bodies, however, EF-S lenses can only be mounted on 1.6x crop bodies of Canon.

    IS and VR relate to the same function, just different terminology of naming the technology.

    USM and HSM are also likewise to each other, mainly to improve the AF speed.

    And? What does Canon itself says on its website about the EF mount? Or tried Wikipedia?

    Every company labels the generations independently. Unless to dig into the specs it is highly speculative to compare systems just be generation labels.

    Define your conditions by which you like to judge and rate the systems.
