EF-M 15-45mm f/1.8-3.5

If this means something like
  • 15mm, f/1.8
  • 22mm, f/2.0
  • 32mm, f/2.8
  • 45mm, f/3.5

then it's a lens I would pre-order instantly! It would replace two lens I currently use the most (EF-M 22mm 2.0, EF-S 35mm 2.8 ).  Just please it's not soft like the current 15-45 and it does not have that stupid collapsible mechanism.  :-\

Since I know that Canon is waiting for my input, let me just say, YES PLEASE!

It would definitely push me over the fence to get the M5, but I am less than a squeak, certainly not even a voice, in the thinking of Canon product development. Oh well...
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

In another thread about EF-M lenses, I defiantly stated that I would not purchase another M product until Canon started to release quicker primes and zooms for the system. Then the Halloween refurb special came and a $637 M5 pushed me over the fence like a Friday night drunk. So much for resolve...

As an M5/M3 owner I would LOVE this lens. I got the 15-45mm with my M5 in a kit but have never used it due to the slow aperture. Although I would rather a fixed aperture, this variable aperture would be welcome over the current one and I would DEFINITELY buy this.

I invested into the M system this October during their massive refurbished sale. I'm extremely pleased that I went with the M5, as it's a great travel camera. The 15-45 lens is ultra compact and light, which is great news, but the aperture is slow - I get the compromise. My biggest reason for buying this lens was it's 24mm equivalent FOV. It's my favorite wide angle focal length. My plan is to swap to the 22mm f/2, adapted 50mm STM (looks very cool mounted) and a manual 35mm lens for low light stuff. So if this lens comes out...I may be first in line to get it! An f/1.8 or f/2 15mm would be sick. However, I'd take another pancake lens too. The 22mm is lovely.
