What's Happening on the EF-M lens front?
« on: June 22, 2017, 06:01:14 AM »
Back in mid-Dec 2016, the following posted as a CR2 rumor...

"With the EOS M5 finally hitting store shelves this month, lenses will likely be the next major addition to the system. While rumors about the EOS M have been pretty quiet, we have heard a few things recently.



The EF-M 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM will be discontinued in the not so distant future.

The EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM has been extremely popular in Asia, which is the #2 market for mirrorless systems.

The first “higher end” zoom for the EOS M system will be something like a 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, and that there are no constant aperture zooms coming in the near future.

We will see at least one prime lens in 2017, but that there are 3 currently being tested.

As always, as soon as we hear more, we’ll pass it on."

We're half way through 2017. Canon seems to be churning out M cameras but haven't seen much new on M lenses. I'm wondering about the "higher-end" zoom and particularly the prime.

Nothing new happening or what?

Sadly, there are no new EF-M lenses on the horizon as far as I know. There are six M cameras and seven M lenses. Quite comprehensive ::)
