A report today suggests we may see five new EF-M lenses in the next 24 months. I have not heard anything that would corroborate this information at this time.
Rumored EF-M lenses:

EF-M 15mm f/2 STM
EF-M 52mm f/2 STM
EF-M 62mm f/4 Macro IS STM
EF-M 18-45mm f/2.8-4 IS STM
EF-M 100-300mm f/5.6-8 IS STM

With everything going on globally, there is obviously a lot of uncertainty about new products and the timelines of these products. Once I can confirm or deny anything, I’ll let you know.

Well if that last lens comes to pass, then perhaps Canon will finally have kissed goodbye to that silly 61 millimeter outside diameter nonsense.

On the other hand at 300 mm it's f/8 which means the actual front lens's theoretical lower size limit is a mere 37.5mm.

Oh please please let them put IS in that 15mm prime, would be pretty much my perfect video lens! It's what I've been hoping for for ages, but with no IS it's no good to me :(

Hmmm, I was planning on buying the sigma 16mm, that Canon 15mm version needs to compare favourably to that for me to buy it. I already have the sigma 56mm, so I'll skip the Canon 52mm. The 62mm macro is an insta-buy, I'm not even going wait for reviews :)

That 18-45 sounds promising
Agreed regarding the aperture and that it likely means higher quality. But the focal length range, basically a 29-72 mm FF equivalent. It is on my list that I will probably get to replace my current 18--55, but would have preferred something with more range than 18-45.

Honestly, Sigma, Tamron, Canon, etc...whoever makes a high quality standard zoom EFm lens first gets my money.

An earlier report had it as an f/2-4. I would really like a 15-45, even if it is f/2.8-4. I really hope that Canon has gotten over the obsession with 60.9mm overall lens diameter. I have both the Sigma 16 f/1.4 and 30 f1.4 lenses. Both are over 60.9mm in diameter, with the 16 being well over. Both work well on my M5 with a 270EX flash but would probably block the internal flash of an M6-2 or M200, especially if their lens hoods are installed.

Canon has had several lenses with upper limits of 300mm, f/5.6 and 58mm filters. They could have used 55mm filters, but that would have been pushing it.
