EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Announcement Soon? [CR2]
« on: June 03, 2013, 09:09:11 AM »

New EOS-M Wide Angle Lens

DCI is reporting that they have been told a new EF-M lens is just around the corner. A new wide angle 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM.


We’ve heard 3 new EF-M lenses are coming in 2013, and this looks to be a good bet to happen. The system is lacking a true wide angle lens, along with many other things.

Did anyone else raise an eyebrow at the "IS" in that lens name?

I didn't think people really needed to handhold 1-second exposures at 11mm, but I suppose the technology does help sell lenses to novices.

Imagine being able to drag shutter for water shots (maybe 1/5 to 1/2s) without a tripod...for someone already considering the EOS-M line, that's another few pounds saved.

The main thing that is lacking is a true will to make a serious mirrorless camera, in order to compete with Fuji and Sony.

Dear Canon, just give us a full frame body and consider the competition smashed.

My concern for the new lenses are size and weight.
More pancake lenses!

+1.  I'd choose a larger max aperture over IS, but I'm sure it will come in handy for the target audience.

It will be extremely useful for shooting interior architecture and night scenery. You can even use smaller aperture to get more depth of field.

How many people have an 'M'? I mean there isn't even a section in the gallery for it.


Just seems like they are making a new lens for a camera that has flopped hard.
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

If it's smaller, lighter, and has similar IQ to the EF-S 10-22 I actually wouldn't mind... That would also mean having a super portable UWA setup in tight spaces much more possible, for example... video on a jib moving in tight spaces between objects, or those shots when people open up a box or bag and the angle is coming from the inside. ;) When you do photo or video work in tightly spaced venues it makes a lot of sense. It opens up a lot of creative possibilities, and is generally more flexible in terms of practical features compared to let's say... a gopro. The portability is already awesome for backup (with adapter) and vacation use. It also means you can carry lighter tripods and etc. Eliminating the need for the adapter in different ranges makes it even lighter and smaller.

It's a first gen product.  I'd reserve judgement until after seeing how the second gen performs.

I saw prices near 400 a while ago (haven't checked recently).  For that price, I'd prefer it with the 22mm and the adaptor to something like the S100 for small walkaround setup.

I have one, and am looking forward to any new lenses they come up with for this system.

As for wide angle, I've been eyeing the 16-35 for my 6D and thus would pass on this if it came to fruition.

What I'm hoping for is a fast prime (how about a 50mm 1.4 or 1.8 EF-M?)...

I have a M and it's bloody marvellous !  With the 22mm pancake, it's light for hill walking, pictures from it are great, it looks like a cheap compact to a hit and run thief...   And importantly, gets the important capture of your life when the FF + f2.8 is just too heavy or big or expensive looking to carry along.

If you don't like the M, fine, manhandle your DSLR ;-)

Not really. IS would be nice for video.

Yes. EF-M 11mm f/4 STM pancake would be great.
FF + primes !

I agree with @ecka... IS (nowadays) is more of a feature for amateur video more so than still photos.  I wouldn't take serious landscape or architectural photos hand holding my camera at 1/15s, although just having that ability helps.
