My price reduced EOS-M is coming tomorrow with the 18-55 IS lens.  Would someone comment on image quality between the 22 and the lens I will be getting?

They're both good. I don't pixel peep. Got the 11-22 on the way.

The reason I didn't get the 18-55 is it's f/3.5-5.6. If it'd be f/2.8 throughout the focal range I'd definitely have gone with it, even if it was $50 or $100 more. f/2.0 on the 22mm is great, but I'd accept a bit higher cost and small increase in size for a good normal f/2.8 zoom.

Yeah, at 2.8 it would probably be more expensive than that and bigger?

I'm fine with the zoom, good walkabout lens. I also like the f/2 of the prime.

If it's $400-500, I'd be happy to spend that money. Granted, the EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 is ~$1K, so it's unlikely I'd we'd get a 2.8 lens for any less than that from Canon.

I am hoping that Canon will announce some M-mount primes. I would love a 15mm f/2.8. A small 50mm f/2 IS would be great too
In fact I'd be happy going on vacation with the EOS-M, the 22mm, and a 15mm 2.8.  The 50mm would just be gravy

I am reluctant on the 11-22 because of it's slow aperture

I wish they had made it an 11-16 f/2.8

I am lucky to own all three lenses, 11-22mm, 22mm, and 18-55mm.  All lenses perform great I feel, and perform much better than Canon's EF consumer quality zoom lenses which I have owned in the past, 20-35mm, 28-105mm, 100-300mm.

While not as good as my L lenses, they are certainly high quality and well built.  Their optics are very good, as the tests have been showing.

What tests?  Do you have the hyperlink?  How did you get an 11-22mm -- I don't think it is released in the US.  Even B&H and Adorama don't have any listing for it.  I've seen preview write-up but no actual tests or sample images.  I'm trying to guage whether I need a 22 when the 18-55 covers that same range.  I'd really want the F2 part for low light but since I have the adapter, I thought I'd just use my 24mm 1.4 lens.

The tests the Japanese magazines have done.  I got the 11-22mm because I live in Japan.  If you want the 22mm f2 its a good lense and at the prices for it, you would appreciate not having to carry the adaptor and weight of the 24mm f/1.4

If it's of any interest, my Sigma 18-50 f2.8 DC macro works just fine on my EOS M, via the adaptor, if you need that range and that aperture you could do a lot worse and spend a lot more, obviously it's a more bulky package, but then anything but a pancake becomes a different size propostion anyway.

Yea, it's the size & bulk thing. I know with a f/2.8 I'd have to deal with a somewhat larger lens anyway, but I was hoping with the M mount it could still be a bit smaller. That's kinda the point of getting an M, is the size.

Yeah I kinda realised that.  You have to kinda realise that the physics of what you want kinda don't stack up.  You had kinda mentioned the canon equivalent, which you would have to kinda adapt anyway.

It would be great Canon to make something like 40/2, 60/1.8, 100/2 - they should be smaller and with better quality than the old EF primes. This system need primes!
