I want to but a Canon 1100D, but I have no idea between these kits:

Canon 1100D IS Canon 1100D IS II

The site is in Germany, so I couldn't understand very well, but when I tried to translate, I didn't see any difference.

Here is the IS:

And here is the IS II:

The links still don't work. I think they're session-specific. –  mattdm Mar 28 '11 at 12:33

I can't find it (it's almost 2 years old, i guess they probably don't sell the old kit anymore), but the only difference was the lens: 18-55mm IS X 18-55mm IS II. –  Luiz Fernando Feb 22 '13 at 18:26

The second one gets you the newer version of the kit lens. Both have the same zoom range, aperture, min focus distance, filter size, etc.

The new version (II) has a improved version of the stabilizer and automatically recognizes motion in the panning direction.

The IS II version has cosmetic changes in order to reduce costs such as a painted, not plastic moulded, lens mount alignment mark. There are no changes to the optical formula or Image Stabilizer. See Canon Rebel T3i / EOS 600D Hands-on Preview at DPreview.

See usa.canon.com/cusa/… - Towards the bottom there is a clear paragraph saying the contrary. This answer should be voted down but with a reputation of 1, lets let it pass with a warning ;) I'll leave it up to you to check your sources next time. –  Itai Mar 29 '11 at 2:50
    
@Itai: I'll make sure that the source is accurate. I've always considered DPreview as reliable, but in the future, I'll confirm with the primary source where available. –  DragonLord Mar 29 '11 at 3:05
