One more thing, Check the ISO setting and noise reduction setting of the "not sharp picture". There is a "BIG" difference in sharpness between ISO 6400 and ISO 100. Also the noise reduction will decrease the sharpness of the picture.

The Canon Camera Museum tech report for the EOS-M 55-200mm lens shows 5 lens in the family. http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/tech/report/2014/08/The first one on the left is a EF to EF-M adapter. Therefore there are only 4 EF-M mount lens.
Thanks for the correction. Even without the IS, the 24mm f 2.8 STM is still an optical engineering sucessCanon should be given a lot of credit on this lens regardless whether the lens fits our need, desire, expectation and requirement or not. EF-S mount is with flange focal distance of 44mm. Canon comes up with a 24mm lens that is ONLY 22mm thickness with IS. That is quite an optical engineering success. In order to make it small, Canon cannot give us a f 2.0 lens. Some members complain about why the EOS-M can have a 22mm f 2.0 lens. The answer again lies in the flange focal distance. The EOS-M has a flange focal distance of only 17.7mm.You missed because the new EF-S 24mm F2.8 STM has NOT Image Stabilizer.
It is a lot easier to design a 22mm f2.0 lens. By the way, this lens does not even has IS. Some member asked for a pancake f 2.0, 24mm EF lens. That is mission impossible.
Why do people expect their camera and lens to do better than that???
I guess for amateurs it's wishful thinking because the price for a good dslr kit is very high in comparison what you could do with the money for other recreations like travel... so it has to last, doesn't it?
Thus one interesting question is avoided: Wouldn't it be more clever to by Rebel cameras with cheaper 3rd party lenses, and when they break simply upgrade to the better current model? Certainly not an option for professional use, but less worry about gear damage, theft or wear and for most purposes about the same result :-.o
I just got around to adding Magic Lantern to my EOS-M this weekend and wish I'd done it sooner. I hadn't realized that it adds focus peaking and the magnified 10x image embedded on the viewscreen! I have a couple of adapters for Konica and Leica lenses that I hadn't used much because manual focus was a little difficult on the screen but with the new tools it's easy.
How about a mirrorless full frame camera stuck in an AE1 type body? No autofocus, full manual controls and good
battery life. Oh, wait - that's a Fuji XT1 in manual mode.
