Think of it as evolving an entire language...

Oh, and to the OP, as you'll find out, the 22 is a great little lens. It'll make you want the 11-22mm and more fast primes. Or was that just me?

rcarca, I'm already impressed with the 22. As a matter of fact, I went ahead and ordered the 18-55. Couldn't pass up the white box price. As I get more into the Canon culture, I will be looking at other lenses. What I don't understand is why Canon USA can't get or doesn't want to get the 11-22, etc for the US market. We might hear something at Photokina.

Has anyone tried this with an adapter for the old FD manual lenses?  I'm waiting on my M kit now. Got the EF adapter but also one for FD. Think I'm more excited about that haha

Same thing. I was initially indicated Friday by Ebay then pushed til tomorrow.  I have my old (well my dad's old) FD 50mm 1.4, 24mm 2.5 (probably perfect focal length for the crop), and a 135 2.8.  I actually called Canon about sending them in to get cleaned up. the 24mm actually has a tiny dead critter in it (baby bug) but of course it gets magnified through the elements ;-))

Also add that I bought the Fotasy FD adapter for $16 on Amazon. Manual aperture works great far as I can tell.

Canon wouldn't not take them for servicing but I found a well reccommended guy who is an old pro who says he can do it for 85 each lens. http://www.markhama.com/

The Metabones Speed booster is what interests me most.
