Canon rumored to announce a new EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM mirrorless lens

Another rumor from digicame-info: Canon is going to announce a new EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM wide angle lens for their EOS M mirrorless camera. The filter size will probably be 55mm. If Canon is serious about their new EOS M system, they have to offer a wide choice of prime and zoom lenses in a short period of time and also release a new, faster camera. Until then, Fuji, Sony and Olympus will rule the mirrorless market.

    Waiting for the new camera. Until then the new lens is pointless.

    That sounds dreadfully slow…

    • Unfortunately, that’s just how they make these wide zooms:

      Sony E 10-18mm f/4 OSS (APS-C)
      Olympus 9-18mm f/4-5.6 (mFT)
      Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 (mFT)
      Samsung 12-24mm f/4-5.6 NX (APS-C)
      If you’re going for a zoom for wides you’re not concerned about speed anyway… or much else for that matter 😀

        Uhhggh. You’re right of course.

        My Pentax/tokina 12-24 is razor sharp across the frame. Not bad at all for a wa zoom. Sure its only f4, but that’s plenty fast for my use of this lens. What more can you ask for? An f2.8 wa zoom? It would be HUGE. The 12-24 is already quite big. Nice range too.

    … and Panasonic, and Samsung… Canon, Nikon and Pentax need much more that launching one or two good mirrorless cameras and some lenses before entering the mirrorless race.

    The
    EOS-M is so dead slow that it’ll take me about a week to let that news
    sink in and another one to get “excited” over it.. I don’t understand
    what Canon was up to with that cam. It’s neither fish nor bird, for
    sure.. Maybe a mole is as close as it gets..

    • Agree. I think it’s just arrogance because they were always claiming they could make a small DSLR without going mirrorless.
      Also the EF-M 22mm f/2 is an exceptionally sharp lens and it deserves a better body.

      Do you have one? What do you want to use it for?

      • deb_ch

        Yes, I have one and I’d love to use it just as I use most other cameras in that price range (btw. even the Fuji X100 wasn’t that slow before it did get the fw update and AF speed was improved, also with the same card, the Fuji is mach faster ready for the next shot. Same with any other cam I’ve had the chance to use in the last 1-2 years).

        With the M, it is easy to capture stills like landscape or non-moving objects. The picture quality is excellent. But try to take pics of children or of people in general, your pet.. Unless you’d find a very patient person/take a picture of a sloth, you’re likely to fail unless you maybe think ahead and prefocus. But don’t expect to manage to take 2-3 pictures in a fast sequence, either..

        My cell phone is faster than the EOS-M. The picture quality of the cell is of course not even close, but I rather have a candid picture than miss every second opportunity to capture a moment..,

        I’m not quite sure who that camera is aiming at.. As I say, neither fish nor bird..

        • Jeremy

          Cool – agreed – its AF is designed to capture neither fish nor birds nor kids 🙂

    A wide angle seems about right… People don’t want their long lenses on this kind of body anyways.

    Although it seems like people don’t want this body 😛

  • Patrick Bateman

    Canon Eos-M does anyone really buy it?

    • Jeremy

      I have one for travel and it is truly excellent. Specifically, it is an awesome travel companion for architecture when sporting the EF-S 10-22mm, Then switching to the 22 f/2 when the sun goes down.
