I really like both lenses on the EOS-M...

Here is a shot with the EFM 18-55

Both nice images.  I agree about the quality of the two lenses, and the bargain price helps, too.  I would love to see a nice compact telephoto for the system, but at the same time I have very little incentive to buy a lot of lenses for it.  It will never be my primary system, but having options isn't bad, either.

i'd be all over either a 15-85 or an 18-200 its just the camera i would actually use a zoom like these on and leave my fast primes on the 5Ds

Know what this system really needs? A fast 50-ish mm lens. Perhaps macro.

A telephoto sounds like a good idea but I wonder how compact they can actually make it. Perhaps if it's like the 11-22 (extends out to use) they might be able to keep the size down, but...

Nice shots everyone!  I just got my M, 22, 18-55, and 90EX kit on Friday, but haven't played with it yet.  It looks like it blows away the crappy compacts I've used over the years.
EOS 1D X, 5DIII, M + EF 24 f/1.4II, 50 f/1.2, 85 f/1.2II, 300 f/2.8 IS II || 16-35 f/4 IS, 24-70 f/2.8II, 70-200 f/2.8II || TS-E 17 f/4, 24 f/3.5II || M 22 f/2, M 11-22 f/4-5.6 IS | 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS || 1.4x III, 2x III
I only shoot at ISO 100 with perfect technique - should I get a Nikon?

For anybody who is interested, the 18-55 image stabilisation works quite well in video mode.

I used it on friday to shoot a car to car shot with the M and lens in a fig rig and me sitting in the back of a vauxhall corsa facing backwards.

Ok it was on a racetrack (Knockhill in scotland) and at 18mm, but I was pretty impressed.

It is a surprisingly good lens - just like the little 22mm.

I got mine a couple months ago, and since the first weekend it hasn't been on my M once. It's not that I don't like it, I just love the 22 so much that it is hard to swap it out. I've never had this 'fast' a lens before-I've always had the crappy kit lens for whatever I had (20D, 40D, Nikon N70).

The 22mm is great. I wish they would make an EF-s version!
