I wonder if someone can give advise on a lens decision for my M6II.
I use the M6II mostly on short trips (cities) or when hiking (hills, mountains, rivers). Besides the obvious subjects, I also do portraits and close ups of flowers on those occasions.
I do have the EF-M 22 and the EF 50/1.8. I would like to change the 50mm to either 32mm or 40mm.
The main reason I would like to give away the 50mm is, that it is too close for me in cities. And it is more bulky than the other 2 lenses - just a little, but space is limited in my bag.
Did anyone use the 32mm and the 40mm and can give some advise on it?

The 32mm will be sharper, brighter and smaller than the 40mm+adapter. The 1/4 macro function on 32mm is quite nice, it is sharp across the whole focus distance range and with the 32MP in the M6II you can crop if you need more.

It's my favourite EF-M lens by far!

Thank you very much!
Sounds like there is no question...
