Well, since Canon appears to be granting the first half of my wish:

 "Since in my wildest dreams I would not have guessed that the second M prime offered would be an f/3.5, I shall refrain from prognostication. I'll just hope for an EF-M 32 f/1.8 IS and a EF-M 15-45 f/4.0 IS."

perhaps I'll get the zoom I long for as well. (And yes, the 32 f/1.8 will have IS)

my goodness you're picky.  Obviously Canon is trying. You should be more appreciative of their efforts.  ;D

Dear Canon,

I really really hope to see an EF-M 30 or 35mm f/1.4 lens like this one here:



It's only 187g.

Please, pretty pretty please.

Me:  "I really want an autofocusing EF 50mm lens."
Canon:  "Here's a sweet 35L II.  It's dope."

Me:  "I really want an autofocusing EF 50mm lens."
Canon:  "Here's a sweet 85 f/1.4L IS.  Shoot yetis in total darkness!"

Me:  "I really want an autofocusing EF 50mm lens."
Canon:  "Here's a sweet 50 prime... but it's T/S so it has no autofocus, is f/2.8, costs a mint and weighs more than a 24-70 f/.8L II.  But I'm pretty sure this is what you've always wanted."

Me:  "I really want an autofocusing EF 50mm lens."
Canon:  "Here's a sweet 50 prime... equivalent on an EF-M. [snicker]"

The wait continues.  Congrats for EF-M, though.  I'm sure it will be a nice instrument.

I'm so sorry for you  :-\ what's wrong with the 50mm 1:1.4 and 50mm 1:1.2 L canon lenses ?

Next will likely be a EF 50mm f/1.4 IS nano USM with focus by wire.

Just to stir the pot: I wonder if there is an inverse relationship between the release of a fast, high quality prime EF-M lens and the release of a full-frame mirrorless.

Has Canon looked at the market and decided (like Fuji) that APS-C is a better format for all those mirrorless buyers who want a small, light camera? At the same time, might they be saying that the future of APS-C is with mirrorless, not DSLRs?

That's a lot to read into a single lens release, but we shall see.

I'm not super excited as I like to have a tele-prime for efm mount.
I may buy it if it's faster or at leastleast equal to f1.4 and in $300 neighborhood, which is very unlikely.

Careful what you wish for.  That design seems to test like the EF 50 f/1.4 -- decent in the center, troublesome on the fringes and you really need to stop it down to make it shine.

I would prefer the performance of Canon's own 35 f/2 over that Fuji, IMHO.  I (of all people) love the notion of small + fast glass, but sometimes physics poops on our dreams and we have to make compromises.

Oh, Padawan of CR, there's not enough time to answer your question.  Forgive me.

Suffice it to say that I'd like an all-purpose sharp 50 prime with Canon first party USM AF and flat plane of focus.  Such a lens does not exist.

And I'd buy that!  FBW is okay (ugh) if it's quicker than STM.

Good news  :)

Personally I hope they keep it small, so I'm hoping for f/1.8 rather than f/1.4. IS would be good of course, though to be honest I'll probably end up getting this lens even without IS (provided the price remains reasonable of course).

I'll be candid -- unless it's a mint they ask for, everyone who owns an EOS M will likely buy this lens.  Everyone has been asking for fast primes forever on that mount, and here comes one.

The question is whether they'll go fancy / go big with this lens.  Might we see our first nano USM EF-M lens?  Might we see a standard filter size?  Might we get a metal barrel?

Trying to size up if this is a $399 offering or a $699 offering.  Presume it's the former, but you never know.

I'd be shocked to see anything at $699 or anywhere near that, though I guess it's not impossible if Canon suddenly decided to go for a higher end, f/1.4 IS solidly built lens. But indeed, that's not what I expect.

If anything, it may even be more likely to swing to the other end of the price range. A very cheap, plasticky, 35mm f/1.8 with no IS for $199. A plastic fantastic for the M lineup. That sounds like it would fit right in the current lineup.

I'd prefer $399 with IS and a better build, personally, but I'm not holding my breath  ;)

50mm 1.4 and 85mm 1.8: Silver Ring, IS, USM. To make company to my 24mm and 35mm.
And i could easily give money to a new 28mm faster then 2.8.
