Summary: It is an excellent lens. Sharp, fast, little size. You can take your machine everywhere with this lens. Dont't worry about flash! You can take amazing photos at a party or at home without flash. If you have an EOS-M, you really need this!
Summary: Mount seems a little tight. The 18-55 fits much better. Not sure if the lens is re-furb, used, or new. Unsure what "white box" means. Came with no Canon literature or packaging. Lens works well and takes a clear bright pic. I guess the low price is why it came the way it did. All that's left is to go on a picture taking trip and test it against my Olympus E-PL1.
A 22 MM Canon M lense that helps you take quality photographs
5 June 2014
Summary: Well if you like to use lenses that are small this is the one. Canon M is a great valued camera for the features are close to the pro cameras without the size. This lense is wide so, the pictures you take with it are going to give depth of field and I try to get great close ups in macro. If you own a Canon M it is lense you need, Today?! Good lense and great value.
Excerpt: Dropped the thing down a flight of stair (whoops, butterfingers) and it still works perfectly fine. Takes clear, extremely sharp images, autofocus is adequately fast, and the out of focus elements are nice and smooth.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This lens is incredible. I specifically bought the EOS m and the 22mm STM for a mission trip to Dominican Republic. It has proven itself small, faithful and true. It's also incredible quiet which is excellent for video. Portraits are gorgeous as well!
