An 18-200 from Tamron for the EOS M is coming shortly. This would be the first third party zoom lens with a native EF-M mount.

Great news, although Rokinon has already released multiple native EF-M mount lenses:

The question is: with or without STM like drive.
Using the 18-270 VC PZD or the 17 300 with a similar concept  through the adapter is not a pleasure and the AF lock is slow

The better news from this one is that third party lens manufacturers are going to release lenses for M system!
I hope Sigma to join too :)

So we have enough dark zoom lenses - put small primes and interesting zooms on priority.

Very interesting.  It will be interesting to compare the size and IQ against Canon's new 55-200.  I would expect the Canon to be optically superior, but if they are close...

That is a pretty compelling focal length, and I would be more inclined towards an all-in-one solution on the M than I would on a DSLR provided things remain compact.

Exciting time for us M owners! Great to see third parties now supporting the platform. Will definitely be interesting to see the size on this do-it-all zoom, and how the IQ compares to the native EF-M 18-55 and 55-200.

I hope we'll see an M3 body and more primes in the near future!

I feel the same way and given the recent run from tamron its definately going to be worth having a look at

Interesting!  I like the idea of the 22/2 plus 55-200, but 22/2 plus 18-200 would be a nice kit if the Tamron's optics hold up and the lens isn't too big.

It's good to have choices...   
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Interesting, especially if the Tamron is available in the USA and the Canon isn't...

How about one of these two babies.  40mm f/0.85 :

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1056298-REG/handevision_hvib4085cm_ibelux_40mm_f_0_85_lens.html

Or this bizarre super macro:

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/929753-REG/yasuhara_ya24_nan5c_micro_lens_for_canon.html
I was going to mention the Handevision but it's not available yet, and personally, I think it's ridiculously expensive for such a low-priced camera.  I'll be surprised if they sell very many.

I didn't know about the macro lens - that is bizarre!

The Tamron is really intriguing given that IQ isn't my primary concern when I carry the M.

Already available on Sony NEX if you want a preview, including an MTF chart.  Compared to the EFM 55-200, the Tamron is slightly longer (87mm vs 102mm), almost twice as heavy (260g vs 460g), and takes larger filters (52mm vs 62mm).  I wouldn't expect the Canon version to be that different from the Sony version.

Already has some reviews out there on the Sony version if you are interested (BH, ...)

Not to mention, the Handevision weighs a ton!
