For the LOVE of all that is holy, please make a fast zoom or prime. I would prefer a fast zoom to replace the 15-45 I have. It's a good lens for what I use it for, but having more light gathering ability and increased size isn't entirely a bad thing - look at the Fuji 18-55mm f/2.8-4 for APS-C, it's not too large and bulky.

I think the quality and specs these lens and the quality of the new flash will be a key sign for what the FF mirrorless from Canon will look like.  If it is a near PRO quality product with EF-M mount, than I would read that the FF mirrorless could possibly be a EF-M mount.  Same goes for the mirrorless flash.  If it is some 90 or 200 series, I would not read much into it, but if it is a quality 300-600series mirrorless flash, I could see it being aimed at FF mirrorless with hotshoe but no built in flash.

My hammerlock predictions:

1) Neither lens will have ring USM

2) At least one of the two lenses will be something no one was really screaming for... but on second thought, every system has had something like it.  Think EF-M 60mm f/2.8 IS macro STM for a 100mm FF equivalent, 18-200 f/slow IS STM, think 56mm f/2 IS STM for a portraiture option, etc.

3) It will not be the EF-M 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM super standard zoom you've always wanted.  It will be less exciting than that.

Oh please, oh please be a 26mm f/2 IS STM or a 15mm f/2.4 STM!

Not long ago there was a patent for the 15-45mm to have a much better variable aperture of f/1.8-f/3.5 which would make the M bodies amazing travel kits. I got the current 15-45mm in the kit when I bought the M5 but I never use it due to the poor aperture.

If FF mirrorless from Canon coming anytime soon... Besides the new lens would be probably for APS-C only, so no relevance for FF. And there are excellent flashes from Canon out there. Why not use them with EOS M now? What this "mirrorless" flash should mean?

Don't know, a bare bulb one, probably, without any "mirror" behind the bulb.... :D

Who would want that? It'd be big and heavy.

Now, a 2.8-4 zoom may be compact/light enough to be sensible. But I suspect the very best we would hope for in a standard pro zoom would be f/4 constant.   But more likely f/3.5-5.6

No more wide-ish EF-M's please. We have that covered to a certain extent but there is no prime with a FL greater than 28 and it's not fast by any means. Give me a 50 or an 80.

I suspect hoping for any sort of standard pro zoom EF-M lens is a pipe dream.

Well, yes, the chances of getting an EF-M 'L' lens are close to zero. What I should have said was "higher-quality" than the baseline low-end zooms we have now.

The M11-22 delivers quite good optical quality, albeit with a slow aperture, and the 22/2 is no slouch.  Generally, I'm not sure we'll ever see much better than that in the lineup.  Among top-notch IQ, small size, and reasonable cost, the best you can do is two of three (and usually it's the last two paired up, not the first two).

Or they could design a 50mm that could have the EF-M mount intended for an image circle to cover full frame sensor.  But they probably wont.

Why? There is already a 22 f2 which I own and which is really great. What would a 26 f2 deliver?
