I had a similar experience with the 18-150, folks just could not believe what I was saying. I got a bad one, it happens.

Hmmm, you got a bad 22mm and a bad 18-150mm.  Perhaps it just the fact that you don't like the results of the camera.  Or like many folks here, that you have convinced yourself that there is a big difference between crop and FF and have developed a mental FF bias.  You wouldn't be the first.

You are confusing different posts by different forum members. I was not the bad copy 22 person. Just the 18-150. I'll take a revised version of your post if you like, have a nice day.

Sounds like you are conflating two posters...  Your statement about a mental FF bias could apply to Woodman411.

If there wasn't a big difference between crop and full-frame, why do you think pros primarily use full-frame and medium format? If by mental FF bias, you mean that I've owned many crop cameras and now my one and only 5d4, and compared hundreds of pictures at the pixel level, and come to my own conclusion that full-frame makes a noticeable difference, then ok.

Of course there's a difference between crop and FF...but sometimes, that difference is not noticeable.  Same for prime lenses.  Consider that if you compare the 50/1.8 to the 100/2.8L, the former is sharper at f/8.

Regardless, unless you got two bad copies of the M22/2, 'shuddering at the bad IQ' seems simple hyperbole.  In capable hands, it performs quite well.  No, it doesn't deliver the wide open IQ of My 85/1.4L IS, or my TS-E 24L II.  But for the price, that would be a foolish expectation.

I guess I'm not that capable then. I shoot mostly indoor candid portraits without flash, something that crop already struggles with, and pancakes can't deliver the 3d effect and micro-contrast of large primes. If I was shooting landscapes, I probably wouldn't be as picky.

The lens that we all wanted on EF-s.

One of the lenses that I and a few others wanted for the M series. A quick 60mm macro would be a welcome next release...

Edit: With hybrid IS

Disappointed that there is no IS, but this may still be worth picking up. A whole stop faster than the 22 - depending on how compact the lens is, and how sharp it is, it could be a winner.

Definitely need more fast lenses for the M system for sure, so glad to at least see that.

Well, it's not exactly the lens that I would have wanted, but I am still very happy to see fast primes coming to the M line. So good news anyway !  ;D

I might still pick it up, but that will depend on size and price.

personally i dont see any need for faster EF-M crop lenses.
Rather than buying expensive and clunky crop f/1.4 lenses i am happy to use f/1.8 lenses on FF-sensored cameras. Gives me more imaging possibilities and better IQ at considerably lower cost and with less bulk. Especially once ultra-compact mirrorless FF camera bodies are widely available. Thinking Sony RX-1R II form factor ... with a "really right" FF lens mount up front ... :-)

I wonder why they didn't put IS in this. I owned the 22mm and due to nice IQ sometimes an IS would have helped saving some minimal blurry shots. With a longer focal range an IS would have been a nice addition. At the moment the 11-22 and 15-45 are the ones I kept, the 22 had to go... lucky I can use the EF 35/2 IS until they release a decent equivalent lens for the M system.

EF-M primes are now 22-28-32 mm...will the next one be 34mm? :P

Good maths question for my 7 year-old. A 34mm would keep the sequence going, but not much hope after that.

+6 +4 +2 +0

A Fibonacci sequence might work better for a lot of forum members.

22mm 28mm 50mm 78mm 128mm .....

Round up 78mm to 85mm and 128mm to 150mm and it could end up being quite close eventually.

I have edited my post.  Sorry I confused you with another poster.  Asked the Admin if they can delete my comments from the chain that follows.  Don't know if they can do that.

Again, my apologies.

I'd rather have a 56mm lens so I can pretend I have a Fuji.  Plus, a nice pairing with the 22.
