Can Canon Company make The Adapter to use this EOS-M Lens to use with our Big Brother Regular EOS ?
Such an adapter would need optics, since the flange focal distance (mount-to-sensor) is short for EF-M lenses.
This would be the fourth lens in the EOS M lineup which contains a 22mm focal length.
Is this really necesssary? I would like to see a focal range from maybe 35-150mm or so.
A UWA lens, a prime, a 'short' walkaround lens, and a 'long' walkaround lens makes perfect sense. The patent also has a superzoom (18-200).
Consider EF-S lenses - 10-22, 15-85, 17-55, 17-85, 18-55, 18-135, 18-200, that's 7 lenses covering 18-22mm (even counting all the 18-55 versions as one).
Consider EF lenses - 16-35, 17-40, 24-70/2.8, 24-70/4, 24-105, 28-135, 28-300, three 24mm primes, two 28mm primes, two 35mm primes (not counting the slower ones recently replaced by IS versions). How about four 70-200 zooms, three 70-300 zooms plus a couple of cheap 75-300s, and several primes in that range (meaning at least 10 lenses of that focal length for every prime).
Choice is good - stop complaining!!
