If you have an EOS-M camera, you should have this lens

Summary: This lens gets a LOT more light than the 18-55mm lens, it is much easier to take photos in dark environments such as indoors. Not to mention the camera getting into the range of point and shoot size with this lens, I can fit the camera in my pocket!
If you use an EOS-M for still photography, you need this lens.

Summary: The lens is compact, super fast, and amazingly sharp, as others have pointed out. The color rendition is wonderful. The only thing i dislike about it is that the autofocus motor is fairly loud.
Summary: This is the third of the EF-M 22mm F2 STM Compacts I've bought and I agree with an earlier reviewer who described this as the lens Canon "should" have sold as the standard on their short-lived, but very nice EOS-M cameras.
Summary: very sharp - fixed prime so you zoom with your feet - nice inexpensive quiet compact lens - what's not to like? *** revision *** Reading some of the reviews I think there are a few things that might be said to help others make a decision on this lens like, 1.)

Summary: I thought the standard 18-55mm was decent for the EOS M but wow this thing is an absolute beast. It is super compact and very sharp. I am far from a photographer but this made taking pictures a lot more fun.
