There is a Canon 18-200, it was initially expensive, and not all that good.  11:1 zoom lenses are a compromise, particularly if you want a reasonable price and a lens that is small and light weight.

I suspect the question is about the EF-M 18-200mm rather than the EF-S 18-200mm - in which case, there's a optical formula patent, but nothing more is known - fingers crossed for a new EF-M lens, maybe two with the next EOS-M camera - an 18-200 and/or pancake zoom would seem likely, more so the latter I'd guess to keep in line with the compact agenda


I missed that, thanks for pointing it out.

With now a few days to play with the Tammy I m curious about the Canon 55 200 it will be half the weight. Handling of the M simply shouts to hold the M but not the lens.

I've been finding my M very useful as a travel camera, I may pick up the 55-200 and 11-22 to round out the kit.

11-22 to round out the kit

that lens is in my eyes (currently) the  reason for the M to exist.
I'm not a street photographer but Souks in Marakesh, Old Town Jerusalem, Markets in Bangkok... anywhere where it is crowded this lens just shines. And mounted on the M the lens still takes up less real estate in my bag than the Tokina 11-16 2:8 did in the past.

Got mine from Canada.  It is a sweet lens.

The 10-18 seems like it might be a good match (if you already have an EF/EF-S ->M adapter).  Getting good reviews and pretty small. Any reason not to go this route?

I just got a 6D, kept my 60D as a backup/beater camera, so the M is relegated to times I'm bringing some sort of backpack or shoulder bag while playing tourist but not so much that I'm bringing one of the bigger cameras. Debating whether to invest in a wide-angle (trip to Italy coming up), or pare back even more and spend the money on something like an RX100iii that takes great photos but is more limited in focal length.

The 11-22 is significantly smaller than the 10-18 + adapter. 

I had been considering the RX100 III, since I used to bring along a PowerShot S95/100.  However...in bright light, small sensors do fine (nearly as good as larger sensors if you don't need shallow DoF), but in dim light you want the biggest sensor you can carry.  That's what I like about the M – relatively larger sensor in a small package with lens flexibility.  The 11-22 and 55-200 together aren't much more outlay than the RX100 III.  The M + 22/2 does decently in low light (not nearly as good as my 1D X + 35/1.4L, though).

I find the M + 18-55 carries nicely in a Lowepro Dashpoint 30 on my belt.  I have the 22/2 pancake in a Lowepro Lens Case 8x6 in the backpack that I bring (I have 3 kids, one 15-months, so I need snacks, diapers, water, raincoat/sweater or towel, etc., on pretty much every outing).  The 8x6 case holds the 18-55 when I swap.  The other two M lenses would be easy enough to carry in separate lens cases, and the whole kit would take less room than the 1D X + 24-70/2.8 II even in a neoprene cover in the backpack.

The PEZ dispenser. Somehow the feet of those dispensers are made to fit a hot shoe and you do not need to ask for smiles once you have mounted it.

Cool! I'm going to have to try this!

+1. This is brilliant!

With more than 20x price differential, I'd sort of expect that. ;)
