Canon EF-M 35mm f/1.8 STM lens coming Summer 2016? [CW3]

Canon EF-M 35mm F/1.8 STM Lens Coming Summer 2016? [CW3]
The EF-M 22mm f/2 STM, the only fast prime for the EOS M system, so far

I’ve been told (thanks) that Canon will announce a EF-M 35mm f/1.8 STM lens during Summer or late Summer 2016, in any case before Photokina 2016.

Unfortunately, I got no specs about the EF-M 35mm f/1.8 STM lens. It’s not the first time such a lens is rumored. I think there will be new lenses for the EOS M system in 2016 (something Canon itself stated), and a 35mm f/1.8 appears to be a pretty likely choice.

On an APS-C sensor a 35mm lens is equivalent to a 56mm lens on full-frame (Canon’s APS-C sensors have a crop factor of 1.6). 50-55mm is a very classic focal lenght that should be available for every camera system. For the time being there is only one prime lens for the EOS M system, the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM (equiv. 35mm). If Canon has to make one and only one additional prime lens for the EOS M system, then it will be a 35mm lens.

In the meantime we are waiting for the EF-M 28mm Macro lens that leaked last week. Stay tuned…

    Fast stabilized zooms please, preferably in the 20-100mm range. (Yes, screw everything wider, you have the lens for that).

    Thank you.

    PS.: and you guys still owe us an EVF.
