I'll be interested in the reviews for this lens. I do wish they would put electronics for aperture and exif in their lenses...

There has been a fair amount of clamoring for a  equivalent of 15 in the EF-M mount.
EOS 5D3, EOS M5 and no room left in the 1510.

For me a very interesting lens because I do ultrawide very seldom but sometimes it is good to have. This lens on the EOS M classic needs only one lens compartment for a full system. Add the 22mm lens and I have enough for the wide angle section.

Add the 200D with the 70-200 4.0 IS USM and you have a very compact system for a lot of situations.

Add the 60mm EF-S you are ready for macro - I am more and more convinced that this is very fine lens just on the 24 MPix sensors.

Add the hypothetical 1.4 50 IS USM (maybe released in the year when SpaceX lands the first astronauts on mars) and the yet compact set of photographic tools has its low light system.
Most used tools: EOS 200D + EF-S 60mm + 4.0 / 70-200 IS AND/OR EOS 5D i  + 4.0 70-200 IS + 2.8 100 Macro

I guess this is cool, if it's cheap.  I like that it's filter friendly.

I'm not sure I would choose this over the Canon 11-22/f4-5.6 though -- except for cost reasons, if I didn't use ultrawide very often, and just wanted "something", and I've regretted almost every purchase like that -- either it turns out to be something I really never use, or, I end up buying some much more expensive alternative later and never use the cheap thing I got to goof off with.

Wondering whatever happened with the macro lenses shown off last year.

For example the Laowa 25mm 2.5-5x Macro?  I've been wondering, too.
