New EF-M Prime Lens Pushed Later Into 2018 [CR3]
« on: January 21, 2018, 11:16:50 AM »
We’re told that the rumoured new EF-M prime lens that was expected in March for CP+ has been pushed back until later in 2018. Unfortunately we still don’t have [CR3] confirmation of the focal length and aperture yet.

It’s not unusual for lens announcements to get pushed back. We’ve seen it with the EF 11-24mm f/4L, the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III and the EF 85 f/1.4L IS and likely others we’re unaware of.

More to come…

Man, there go my dreams of getting a sweet plasticky focus by wire EF-M 70 mm f/5.6 STM.

My wish for a further EF-M Prime would be a 35ish or 50ish prime in the f/2..2.8 range. Something which can replace my 40 f/2.8 pancake from using it on the M5. I do not have the EF-M 18-55 anymore which I sold together with my EOS M.
But I'm afraid we will rather see something in a focal range we already have covered with the good 11-22mm such as a 15mm f/2.

Maybe I have to buy the EF-M 28 Macro and the EF-S 50 f/1.8 STM to fulfill my wishes.

Of course, since this is something I would have bought early adopter stylie.
EOS 5D3, EOS M5 and no room left in the 1510.

Guess there's no point launching the full-frame EF-M lenses until the body is out ;)

Cameras: 5DSR, A7RII, 5D III, EOS M6/M5/M3, Mavic Pro, DXO One.  Oh, and more lenses than I care to count.

Wonder if there will be an adapter for my current set of EOS L lens.  WOuld be nice to add a lighter set of lens in the future, but first need to see what the camera is

Sometimes there are promotional bundles where you get that free, too.  Or, the viewfinder, with the M6.

This means we'll be seeing a high-end mirrorless camera without a high-end lens.

... the rumoured new EF-M prime lens ... has been pushed back until later in 2018
*sigh* Canoneers love to wait ;)

It's time to revive your dreams of that 50mm-your-preferred-design-lens ;)
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.

no problem, helps to give Nikon more free space to launch their mirrorless FF system into ... :-)

By the time Canon will finally launch a short EF-M tele prime between 70/2.0 and 85/2.4 IS STM ... I may well have moved on ... hehe.  ;D

This means we'll be seeing a high-end mirrorless camera without a high-end lens.

Assuming that by 'high-end' you mean a fast prime or zoom (and the bulk that usually accompanies such lenses), what makes you think we will ever see a high-end EF-M lens?

Now, if you meant a lens that delivers excellent image quality, the EF-M 11-22mm is a high-end UWA zoom.
EOS 1D X, EOS M6, lots of lenses
