Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM Coming April 5, 2017 [CR3]
« on: March 14, 2017, 01:27:44 PM »

Canon will announce an EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM on April 5, 2017. What we find unique about this announcement is the “M” in the lens description. We’re not sure what that means…


Here are a couple of ideas off the top of my head:



  • Macro mode?

  • EOS M compatible?

  • Leica made it?


Here are the best reader ideas:



  • From GHPhotographyPerhaps M is a designator for macro mode with the integrated LED lights from the EF-M 28mm f/3.5 IS


What do you think?


Availability and pricing are not known at this time, but we don’t have long to wait.

I'd love to hear how many folks get excited about a 56mm, not incredibly fast equivalent. Canon must believe that there are quite a few.

Macro mode? No - it'd have Macro in the name as per all other macro lenses. Also Macro isn't a 'new' feature for EF-S

EOS M compatible?  Arent they all with a suitable adaptor?

I wonder if the M is actually an indication of quality, ie the EF-S version of an 'L' lens.

I thought it will be a wideangle lens. 35mm for APS-C is surely not considered wideangle, that's a normal prime!

The M doesn't mean macro I think, it must be something else and new. I'm a bit disappointed about the focal lenght as I thought it would be somewhere around 10-18mm.

I guess I have to order the Samyang 10mm 2.8 again lol. It's OK.

If M = macro, and it's 2:1, I'd like one for my 80D.  If it's 1:1 or less magnification, I agree with jolyonralph; meh.

As someone who currently only has APS-C bodies, and wants a 35mm... Even *I* am not excited by this! I'd rather save a bit longer and get the full-frame compatible EF 35 2.0 IS or the 1.4L (version I's can be found for good prices!)

As a beginner lens, sure, go for it... Which is what it seems Canon thinks of EF-S mount. I feel like Canon will never do another serious EF-S lens like the 17-55 2.8.

Perhaps it is Macro and M compatible. Like some integrated macro tube that can be used for macro on normal DSLR and to get the back focus right on EOS M. They would just have to find a way to make this mountable on both EF-S and EF-M mount.
But I think it is something else really special. Because neither the focal length nor the aperture are special at all. I would have expected the lens to be wider than 17mm to provide something not covered by the 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM.

M for metal mount and housing perhaps?

M for FTM override, don't know if this would be a first for EF-S lenses?

M for "must have" because of this M noone knows what it will be.

Oh, oh, I know -- "Manual focus that won't annoy me" :)


If it's optically excellent like the 1.8STM and efs 10-22, and the price is "cheap", I'll buy it. I like 35mm on crop and the lens will probably be super thin. I mean, not earth shattering stuff here, but, why not?

Why invent just another adaptor just for one lens?
They could ship it together with the EOS-M Adapter, when removed it is just a EF-S lens.

Standard prime FL and f/2.8 screams macro to me.  I'd go +1 on the integral macro lights suggestion.

No idea why it's being branded 'M' though -- no other lens gets that designation.  They just say 'Macro'.

So, the plot thickens. At f/2.8 this is not the fast normal prime everybody hoped for. I guess the closest analogue to this lens in the existing EF selection is the 24mm f/2.8 IS USM - but hopefully this one will be cheaper! There must be some niche Canon is betting on that is not served by the 40mm f/2.8 STM or the 35mm f/2 IS USM - and that mysterious "M" probably has something to do with it. With IS STM, video is one obvious guess.

You'll run into a great deal of interference championing the 50 1.8 and the 10-22 as optically excellent. I would on the other hand just hope it's compact and on par optically with the 24 ef-s and the FF 40.

I would bet the M designation is a non 1:1 Macro. What that ratio might be is anyone's guess.
