EF-M 55-200 4.5-6.3 IS STM Coming Shortly
« on: June 16, 2014, 02:59:48 PM »

We heard about this lens way back in September of 2013, and it’s finally making its way to the market.


We’re thinking this lens will not immediately make it to the USA, following the same path as the EF-M 11-22 f/4-5.6 IS STM.


EF-M 55-200mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM



  • Adopted one glass molded aspherical lens and one UD lens.

  • 22% shortening the overall length compared to the EF 55-250 IS STM.

  • EF-250 mm in 1980-IS 31% weight reduction compared with STM equipped with a camera shake correction of the effect of 3.5 stops.

  • Fast AF algorithm.

  • Full-time manual focus.

  • ET-54B Lens Hood.

Nice.  This and the 22/2 as a walkaround M kit would work for me.
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

The linked post said it would be coming with a new body.  So, new body?

I think the new body it's referring to was the M2 announcement in December...

Any word on pricing, or availability in the US?

6.3?


that sucks...sounds like design compromise for the size.
Be the best you, screw everything else.

Now we need a new body with DPAF and the 11-22 released in the US.

Not exactly, "...an EF-M 55-200 IS STM lens coming whenever a body is announced...", is it.  Maybe it's just a little late.

Oh well.  I can't see myself ever buying into the M system anyway.

The "whenever a new body is announced" bit was written in September 2013. M2 was announced in December 2013. I was saying that I think the lens announcement is late, rather than an M3 announcement will be coming out at the same time as this lens, as it hasn't even been 6 months since the M2 shipped.

This is the lens that I've wanted for the system.  I often carry the 70-300L along with my Tamron 24-70 VC + 6D while traveling.  I also bring the M for the moments when I want to go out very light, typically with the 22mm.  Being able to leave the 70-300L home would be sweet; I use a tele sparingly for general travel, so as long as the image quality is pretty decent this should do the trick for me.

Somewhat surprised by the f/6.3 aperture; I've not known any Canon to have a maximum aperture smaller than f/5.6, although the practice is not unusual among 3rd parties.

Much less excited about this lens than the 11-22, 22, 18-55.  Will wait for the reviews on this one.  Would have like to see one with a wider aperture like Fuji.  Also will be interesting to see if MII/III will be able to track moving objects with this lens.

f/6.3 looks like it was done for diameter/weight reduction.  22% reduction of length isn't that impressive when it gives up 25% of the longest focal length relative to the EF-S 55-250.

Given that this is a mirrorless system, the PDAF baselines and traditional max aperture values may not apply...

And an M body similar in concept to the Sony A6000, only better.

F/6.3 ... and in reality probably T/7.9 ... no way. Too much of a compromise. They should have made it f/5.6 even if that would have meant only slightly smaller than the EF-S 55-250. i'll continue to use that one ... Plus adapter ... Which is nice anyway because it has a tripod foot for my mini-tripod. :-)
