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.

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!
