Good lens

David Simmonds, Amazon

  • 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.

Tough, sharp, light lens

  • 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

Packaging of the lens

TCR "tcr33149", Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: Did not come in the typical Canon packaging. It came in a plain white box and bubble wrap. No instructions nor warranty within the box. It looked pristine and I have not used it yet. I am wondering if this was a return? "Gray market" as they say. Update: I used the lens before and it seems to work well. I viewed the photos on my laptop, which does not have the best screen resolution. I forwarded the photos to my Workstation that has a very nice Samsung 22 inch monitor.

the travel size lens

  • Excerpt: this has become my go to lens for this camera. it makes the system small enough to easily fit in a pocket, and with a relatively low f stop of 2 you get an overall nice boca compared to the 18-50 lens.

Small, good and fast

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this to add to the 15-55 zoom because at f2, it's fast glass. It's come in handy in very low light situations in which I often find myself. Also, it's diminutive size makes the EOS M a pocket camera... if you have fairly large pockets. Build quality is up to typical Canon standards and will continuously auto-focus, which comes in handy as I shoot almost exclusively in video mode.

sharp but nosy

  • Excerpt: For >%50 off of the release price of this lens, it is a very nice sharp and fast lens. Makes the EOS-M a little more portable. The autofocus step motor is a little noisy, so it may not be so great for videos. Wished the boken were a little sharper, overall a nice addition to my other 18-55 zoom lens.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Noisy, Nosy

AF-C cause of focus hunting

JKLPHOTO, B&H Photo
8 January 2014
  • Excerpt: When folks complain of focus speed or hunting with this lens or the EOS-M system as a whole, realize that Canon's default focus mode is Continuous AF. Change this setting and focus will lock quickly.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh
