The whole idea of the M is SMALL.  All the above suggestions are not small ij size.You can also look into the Leica 35mm lens.  I have a 50 years old 35/2.0 Summicron. With the L to EF-M adapter, it is almost the same size as the EF-M 22mm. It is almost as sharp as the EF-M 22mm. However, the Summicron is with better "definition" in fine detail. If you use the Leica 35/2.8 lens it will even be smaller.

This is by far one of the my favorite Summicrons... my "cron"-ic.  The Summilux would be to big IMO and defeat the purpose. I love my lux but the cron is the one that gets used almost exclusively. I don't own the 2.8's though but might be worth a shot.
My 90/4 Elmer (also 50 years old) is my defacto 135mm for M. It is a very good lens and small, but not light. The picture below is at pixel level, hand held at  1/500, f8(?). I was about 1.5 Km from the object. I am sure that the dust in the air and the air movement contributed to the unsharpness of the picture.

Dunno, but I found the grip on the m6 enough for the 50mm summilux. It gives it a nice heft. And you balance it below with the focus tab.

Sticking a 24-70, 16-35, and a 70-200 in a bag, the difference between adding an ef full frame body or an ef-m body is neglegable. Might as well go full frame.

But rangefinder lenses, mixed with the good  ef-m lenses out there still have a small foot print! I can fit an m5, 50mm summilux, ef-m f2 22mm, and the ef-m 11-22mm wide angle, with two batteries, two sets of circ polarizers and chargers in a single Tenba 9 BYOB insert with an ipad mini inserted in the back sleeve!.

(Drops tenba bag, walks of stage....)

Since recently getting the M5 i was also looking for 35mm lens options

I already had the samyang 35 1.4 for EF but it's simply too enormous for the M

I found and bought recently the Meike 35mm f/1.7 for EF-M for 100€! size is very close to the retracted 15-45 kit lens, weight is maybe double because it is made completely out of metal! The build and feel are amazing. Images are ok-good in terms of sharpness at 1.7 and very good at 2-2.8. The only aspect i don't like is that the aperture ring doesn't click...it seems to be more intended for video.

The 22 f/2 is a 35 mm, well a 35.2

I always wonder when folks want a 35 on other than FF, are they looking for a normal (~50 perspective)?

imho the 40 pancake is one of the most underrated lenses in Canon's lineup. Well, for FF that is.

So wouldn't it be nice if Canon released the shorty 40 with an EF-M mount, or is that asking too much?

It's a weird focal length on crop, it might work for someone artistically because we are all different but generally speaking no one is begging for  64MM lens. I'd like a 40 with a wider aperture that still has AF (not going to happen)

Yes, 64mm is a little odd, but I don't feel it's really out there. I mean, it's not crazy like a 28mm f/3.5 macro. I'm desperate for some quick AF EF-M primes, work with me.

I have an M5 with most of the m lenses, but I also have a 7Artisans fish eye lens which works really well.
As this lens is made in the m mount, perhaps they will release a few more m lenses in the future.

I often use the Canon ef-s 60mm macro lens on my M5 with good results, both for stills and video, so the other smaller ef-s lenses should also work well.
I should dust off my old 50mm 1.8 and see how that works on M5.

7Artisans also make a 55mm f1.4 for the m mount.
You can see them at www linkdelight.com

I think I've found what you're looking for, a Meike 35mm f1.7 manual lens for the m's, all for $82.99, also from Linkdelight.
I might pick one of these for myself.  :)

Have a look through their site as they seem to have lots of lenses for m's from various manufacturers.

I picked up the $90 Meike 35mm f/1.7. I saw a video review of it and decided it was kind of perfect. It mimics a vintage photo lens with its simple design, but has modern coatings that help with certain optical issues.

Available in EOS M-Mount on eBay and Amazon.

It's worth every bit of the $90 and the strange wait time to get the lens - you won't get the lens quickly unless you pony up.

So far, it has been a beautiful, fun lens to use. I suggest keeping focus peeking at "Low" so it's easier to see the detail as you adjust focus. "High" is too thick and you can't see some of the details.
