More Mentions of EF-M Prime Lenses [CR1]
« on: November 05, 2015, 11:55:14 AM »

We’re told again that two new EF-M prime lenses will appear in the first quarter of of 2016.



  • EF-M 15mm f/2 STM

  • EF-M 35mm f/1.8 STM


While we’ve been told by multiple people that the EF-M 35mm f/1.8 STM was coming, this is the first mention of an EF-M 15mm f/2 STM. 


We speculate that we’ll see a macro for the EOS M system sooner than later.

A 15mm EF-M = a 24mm prime in FF.  Lovely, but who the hell was asking for this? 

EOS-M has an ultrawide zoom and an adjacent wide prime with the 22mm f/2.  Surely a native sized portrait lens or macro lens was a bigger need for the platform, right?

And why does EOS-M go with faster max aperture small primes without IS, while EF gets slower max aperture primes with IS?  Everything about this seems inconsistent.

man, they both sound attractive given the compact size of the M system.  when is the m4 coming out?  or the FF ML?

umm that'd be freaking huge.

it would be larger and heavier than the 60mm EF-S macro and 1:2? ew.

i was!  (in my mind at least...  didn't actually mention it to anyone.) but i'm very pleased about this rumor!  i'd much prefer a fast 15mm than the slow uw zoom in this range.

Fascinatingly enough. Nikon refreshed it's wider mid-level FF primes recently, and unlike Canon's 24 2.8 / 28 2.8 / 35 2.0 with IS, they opted for f/1.8 lenses without IS.

EF-M would appear to be doing the same:  the prime lineup would now be EF-M 15 f/1.8, 22 f/2, 35 f/1.8.

I personally prefer the IS USM goodness of Canon's refreshes, but yes, I wish my 28mm f/2.8 IS USM was f/2 like the 35mm is.

More EF-M lenses is good news. But i'm not going to buy a 15 or 35 prime. Happy with 11-22 and 22/2.
i would buy a portrait tele prime WITH IS - eg a EF-M 80/2.0 or even 2.8 IS STM - provided it has good IQ,  compact size and reasonable price. EF-M Macro? not interested at all, EF-S 60/2.8 Macro via adapter is fine with me.

Urgently wanted: fully competitive, kick ass EOS M4.

+1. 

But I'm not as hopeful as you are:  I'll walk you back from 'fully competitive' to just 'having a viewfinder'.   :P

Not necessarily if they opt for 1:2 magnification and IF. Shorter register distance can make some difference too. I think, that it can be same length but thinner, even with IS.
If you look at EF-S 2.8/60 diagram, the optics isn't that bulky.



If they can make it from lightweight materials, it would be fine for universal portraiture/macro lens.

Since they didn't include IS, hopefully they will be of the pancake variety with size/performance of the wonderful 22mm. If they follow up with a quick 60, the M would have its own little trinity :)

It's own little plastic STM trinity you mean. 

Stubbornly, as a stills guy, I want better built, internally focusing USM lenses for this platform.

I'm glad for EOS-M folks to get these lenses -- and I'm sure they'll work well.  But these announcements do not inspire me to pull my credit card out.

Patience grasshopper. I suspect that most folks that use the M are also stills shooters. If those stills don't include moving things, the M is a fine little image capturer. You want (and so do I) an enthusiast camera capable of shooting action, and I am reasonably confident that Canon will eventually oblige you. By then though, you may not need a credit card, a retinal scan should suffice ;)

If the price is affordable (like the other EF-M lenses so far) I think I'll be all over this one. Primes work well on the M because leads to such a compact system. I like it!

Would love for this to mean an EF-S 15mm f2 IS would also be released at some point.
