Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 Coming for Photokina [CR2/CR3]
« on: February 12, 2018, 10:11:00 AM »

UPDATE: It appears that a Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.8 was mentioned a year or so ago, ahead of the last CP+ show to be announced alongside the EOS M6. If it indeed turns out to be an EF-M 32mm f/1.8 and not an EF-M 32mm f/1.4, what was the delay in announcing such a lens?




This has been a hard lens to pin down, likely because it’s still a long way off, with the expected announcement in August/September 2018 ahead of Photokina.


We reported last month that the lens was going to be a 50mm equivalent for APS-C and that it was going to be fast.


We rate this information in two parts.


The [CR3] Part:


The lens will have a focal length of 32mm and won’t have IS.


The [CR2] Part:


The speed of the lens I haven’t been able to nail down with 100% certainty as of yet, it’ll either be f/1.4 or f/1.8 based on the conflicting information I have received.


Once I confirm 100% the speed of the lens, I’ll obviously let you know.

If it's f/1.4, I'm in.  If it's f/1.8, that may not far enough off the 22/2.
EOS 1D X, EOS M6, lots of lenses

If f1.4, will the lens be like, attaching an EF 35mm 1.4 L to Eos M?

No.  It will be like attaching a slightly larger version of the ancient pre IS EF 35mm f/2.   My guess is it will be about as big as the EF 50 f/1.4 USM, which is to say not that big at all.

Sigma made an EF-S image circle 30mm f/1.4 and it was not that big if memory serves.

Certainly I was not referring to the size.
I mean like bokeh wise:
Eos M + EF-m 32mm f/1.4 ?= Eos M + EF 35mm 1.4 L ?= 6D + EF 50mm f/1.8

6D and 70D. 24-70 F4L IS and 50 F1.2L

Oh.  No, it will have the light gathering of f/1.4, but the DOF/isolation of a full frame camera with a 50mm f/2.2 or so.

As far as the quality of the bokeh goes, that’s quite subjective and we’ll have to try it and see.

So it hits the target mark of people wanting a smaller camera with a standard lens *and* is great for cinematographers as well?

This will probably sell very well. If I was in the M camp I'd buy it day one.

I stand corrected on the potential size of this.  Sigma's crop-only 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art is just about as big as Canon's EF 35mm f/2 IS USM.

Can't post the picture today, but you can see a direct comparison here:
https://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Lens-Product-Images.aspx?Lens=838&LensComp2=0&LensComp=824

So I appreciate we need to consider the mirrorbox removal for an EF-M version, but one would think it would be about as big as these two lenses.

Also curious to see if we'll get a nano USM here, or if it will just be STM.

I'd guess STM.

Most likely, right?  I'm also curious what they'll ask for it:

If it's f/1.4 Nano USM, you're into 'enthusiast money' territory -- esp. as this mount's first truly fast prime.  I'm assuming you're in the $399-499 territory.

But if it's f/1.8 STM, you're really just replicating an EF 50 f/1.8 STM in crop, and that EF only costs $125. 

So depending on speed + AF, price could be all over the map.  We'll have to wait and see.

I'm surprised by no IS. I understand that will make it smaller and lighter, but it will also limit its appeal for some. Maybe not the hard core CR readers, but for the millions who have come to rely on having IS in all their lenses.

Agree of course, but perhaps they wanted to minimize its size or not upstage EF here (who does not have IS in faster than f/2 primes wider than 85mm presently).
