EOS M: Patent-16-120mm-f3-5-5-6-is-stm
« on: January 02, 2014, 09:23:48 AM »
Interesting about the new lens patents.  I bought the EOS M pretty much hoping for the wide angle zoom.  Apparently Canon wasn't interested in selling it to us.  Rumors say the EOS M2 won't be sold here either.  I doubt this new super zoom will make it to the US.  I just bought a SL1 and will be selling my EOS M with kit lens and adapter.  Yeah, I'll miss its size and uniqueness, but at least with the SL1 I can use all the lenses I already have without adapter and performance should be a little better.

I thought about buying the 11-22 overseas, and I still might.  With the 11-22/22/18-55, that would be about as much as I'd get for the M.  The 11-22 is supposed to be a bit better than the ef-s 10-22, which was a pretty good lens before I moved to full frame.  I sold all my ef-s lenses so moving to the SL1 wouldn't make sense for me.
