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.
There a lot of churches, buildings will not allow either tripod or monopod. therefore you have to hand hold the camera. You will want IS in that situation.

You don't really need a tripod for mirrorless cameras with small lenses. Half-decent gorillapod should be OK.

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.
Hmm, I'm not sure how hard it has flopped. But let's see in a year when they have launched more lenses and another body. I've said it before and I think it does apply here, these big companies take their time to get it right. Many complaines about this camera haven't even tried it. It's not bad at all. With this lens I would really contemplate getting the M as a wide package instead of getting the 16-35 to my 5D3. Keep in mind that I'm an amateur though.

This maybe a stupid question, but anyway..
Do these EF-M lenses work on Canon's other APS-C cameras such as 600D and 7D?

No.  Only for EOS M.

Yes. EF-M 11mm f/4 STM pancake would be great.

  • seconded!


And as a zoom-lens, the 11-22 should really come with constant f/4.

I would like to see you use a gorillapod inside Ventican or Versaille

:) me too.
However, that's not my point. There is a bigger chance to use gorillapod in such places, than tripod. Don't you agree?

With IS you may not need either one of them The whole idea of mirrorless is to  travel light ( both in weight and bulk). With a"decent gorrillapod" ( read it as larger) that defeat the purpose. With IS on an EOS-M, you can hand hold the camera inside the building within reason. If there is enough light, you can even use a smaller aperture to give you more depth of field.  Therefore this lens is good for still photography.

11mm not 10mm?
and f/4 not 3.5?

sigma has 8-16 f/4-5.6

well the EOS M world is uninteresting so i wouldn't expect a surprise lens, but 11-22 IS? why not a smaller 10-22? and who needs IS with such a lens?

a very pleasant surprise would a be an 8mm f/3.5 pancake but 11-22?????? nahhh..

In a crowded room full of tourists milling about, good luck setting up your gorillapod on the floor and taking pictures through the crowd. Many times you have to hold the camera up high to snap that picture.... a stance that really needs IS....
The best camera is the one in your hands

The more I think about this, the more I think it would make sense to release this with a New EOS M  model? Wishful thinking?
