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: 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!
Excerpt: The EOS M is an amazing camera, but it is even better with this little wonder! If you made the same mistake as me (you bought the M with the 18-55mm instead of the 22mm), do yourself a favor and rectify it soon! The 18-55mm is good, but the 22mm is awesome. It is sharp, compact (non-obtrusive), and a great value for the price. As a white-box item, it came in a non-descript white box (of course), but it was all there and in great working order.
Summary: Even wide open it is sharp, except in the extreme corners. Lens is almost silent, but you can hear the gears with video (so use an external microphone for that). Focusses reasonably fast, and accurate. Nice 35mm full format equivalent. CA is pretty low, and with Canon Digital Photo Professional (DPP) and its lens optimizer you get very sharp results without any CA.
Excerpt: A great, small and fast lens. With this attached my Eos M is actually significantly smaller than my old Canonet. It's not quite point & shoot but it's close. It's a great walking or hiking lens in other words.
Summary: The Canon EF-M 22mm F/2 STM is a jewel! It's very sharp even at f/2 (perfectly sharp from corner to corner at f/4), and it IS an f/2 lens! It's equivalent to 35mm so it's a classic focal length and makes it very versatile. Bokeh quality is very nice and you can focus close (15 cm). Build quality is great too and at around 100USD it's a steal! It makes the M coat-pocketable and is very light. Go get it!
Excerpt: extremely happy I added it, now use mainly this one. has crisp sharpness and great Depth of Field with an f/2 aperture. very happy with it sometimes focus doesn't work smooth, but when it does it is very sharp.
