Had my copy for 10 days now (UK).  The lens feels nicely made and very light. It's all plastic including the mount, like the 55-200.  But curiously, the supplied lens hood is metal.

USA release isn't for another few days, but I suspect I'll get mine shipped early since I was an early pre-order.

Samples? Give me something at least to droll over while I wait, and I know there are a few folks that aren't completely sold on the idea of this lens being worth the investment.

What'd be really cool, find something you need to use the macro-light on, and upload? That's a selling point, I'd think anyways.

Perhaps they are re-using another similar thread hood? That's my only guess.

How's the uh, climate there?

I got my copy in Hong Kong last week. Very good lens, very happy with it!

It works nicely as a standard 28mm lens also, which is quite a good standard lens for a crop sensor for general photography- while I was wandering around HK I left this lens on my M3 pretty much all the time, only swapping for the 11-22 from time to time.

The attached image is a group of 3-4mm natural spinel crystals.

There is a more detailed review of experiences of this lens here: http://www.everyothershot.com/canon-ef-m-28mm-f3-5-macro-stm-quick-review/

It is certainly the most exciting lens yet to be added to the EF-M system, and a great example of how Canon can innovate if they put their minds to it. I absolutely love this lens, and feel vindicated now for getting rid of my Sony A6000 and keeping the (inferior in many ways) Canon M3.
