Canon EF-M 55-200 f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Gets Official

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 17 June 2014 – Canon today announces a new addition to its EF-M lens range with the introduction of its first dedicated telephoto zoom lens – the EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM. Designed for Canon’s Compact System Camera, the EOS M, the new EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM features Canon’s signature optical performance, advanced Stepping Motor Technology (STM), a 3.5-stop optical Image Stabilizer, and provides a versatile 55-200mm focal range to help users get closer to the subjects they love
 
Taking you closer
The EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM joins three existing lenses in the EF-M range, which together offer a diverse variety of focal lengths from 11-200mm. The perfect addition to any EOS M kit bag, the new lens opens additional creative possibilities for EOS M shooters through its suitability to capture a wide selection of scenes – from eye-catching portraits at 55mm, to wildlife at 200mm.
 
Leading optical technologies for incredible images
Developed using the company’s unparalleled optical expertise, the EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM features Canon’s powerful optical Image Stabilizer and STM technology to deliver outstanding levels of detail when shooting stills and movies. When shooting movies specifically, STM technology ensures smooth focus transitions, as focus shifts from one subject to another. The STM mechanism also provides near-silent focusing, giving videographers the ability to shoot movie soundtracks which capture the natural ambience of the scene in front of them. Additionally, thanks to a highly-effective 3.5-stop optical Image Stabilizer, which reduces visible camera shake, users can also shoot sharp stills while using the zoom, and steady movies while capturing action.
 
Designed to make great photography easy
Constructed of a high quality metal exterior – a trademark of the EF-M lens range – the EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM is also compact, lightweight and portable, making it ideal for everyday use. Inside the lens, an Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) element delivers outstanding image quality throughout the zoom range. Furthermore, its non-rotating front element makes it easy to maintain a consistent effect when using filters, and the full-time manual focus ring offers greater creative freedom to adjust focus during shooting.
 
Key Features

  • Get closer to the action with your EOS-M camera
  • Image Stabilizer keeps images sharp
  • Compact enough to go anywhere
  • Smooth, near-silent STM focusing
  • Make quick adjustments with a manual focus ring
  • Shoot great quality images – full of sharp details and rich colour

Detailed specs are after the break.

EF-M 55-200 4.5-6.3 IS STM Coming Shortly

EF-M 55-200 4.5-6.3 IS STM Coming Shortly

We heard about this lens way back in September of 2013, and it’s finally making its way to the market.

We’re thinking this lens will not immediately make it to the USA, following the same path as the EF-M 11-22 f/4-5.6 IS STM.

EF-M 55-200mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM

  • Adopted one glass molded aspherical lens and one UD lens.
  • 22% shortening the overall length compared to the EF 55-250 IS STM.
  • EF-250 mm in 1980-IS 31% weight reduction compared with STM equipped with a camera shake correction of the effect of 3.5 stops.
  • Fast AF algorithm.
  • Full-time manual focus.
  • ET-54B Lens Hood.
