EOS M – 3 native lenses compared
« on: August 25, 2013, 06:44:17 PM »
i made this very simple and unscientific test in case anyone is interested. all shot at 22mm f/5.6 ISO 200, straight jpeg at 18MP.

EF-M 22mm


EF-M 11-22mm


EF-M 18-55mm

yup, looks like 22mm  :P

did you use AF or MF for this test?  it would appear there are different planes of focus at work here.

for example, the 18-55mm image is definitely using a different focal point compared to the others.

18-55 is focused a bit closer, thus the greater blurring in the background.

It would be great if you could redo the test, but with a definite target, so all the pictures are focused at the exact same distance.

+1.

The first two are focused the same, or close. The first one is more "clear" (and a bit brighter, as expected).

i use the 18-55 most because of the useable range and figured i can push ISO in low light. i had poor results on my last outing with that lens and also noticed the 11-22 is better. no real favorite but i did get by on the 22mm prime for six months and may go back to it as my go-to lens.
