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]

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…

Photographer and reviewer Dustin Abbott just published his findings about the new Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Nano USM lens, introduced a few months ago with the Canon EOS 80D.

You can watch the 15 minutes video below, which will tell you anything that’s in Abbott’s review, or you may head over to his site and read it, along with many sample pictures. In the conclusion Abbott writes:

There is a lot to like about Canon’s newest lens. I’m blown away by the new focus system and feel like it represents a better, more effective focus system than any of Canon’s consumer grade lenses have received before. It is almost eerily fast and silent, and has proven quiet effective in both tracking and stills focus performance.  This is going to help a lot of people keep up with their active children or grandchildren. I feel that Nano USM represents a quantum leap forward for an AF system that is equally effective in both stills and video shooting. I only wish that the image quality had taken a similar leap forward. It feels like it could be better, though it is good enough to meet the needs of many shooters and is competitive with similar lenses. This is a great travel lens, though I might wish that the great looking new lens body included some attempt at weather resistance. Read the review…
