Canon EF-M 18-55mm STM Lens Review (The Digital Picture), And Pictures From Myanmar

StumbleUponShare

 

The Digital Picture published a review about the EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM. ISO 12233 chart, flare, distortion and vignetting test results along with measurements & specifications are considered.

I am currently abroad in Myanmar (former Burma). Internet in Myanmar is a major problem. When it works, it is so slow that you can't upload any pics, neither you can load any pages. Sometimes it takes up to 5 minutes just to send an email. That's why I am seldom able to post anything here at CanonWatch. I am using the lens while abroad in Myanmar, and I am fully satisfied (well, I am missing a more powerful zoom). More to come (Internet permitting).

Suprisingly, the only thing that really works here in Myanmar is Flickr (don't know why). So, as an emergency solution and in order to be able to show you my pics I have to use it. I do not have an account, all the pics are hosted by a good friend (thanks GrandWazoo). Check my Canon EOS M travel pics here.

And Now It Is Official: Canon EOS M Announced! (Sample Images, Hands-On Videos, All Pre-Order Links, Continously Updated With All The News)

This post will be updated as new information flows in. I am updating with new posts.

It is here! Canon’s jump on the mirrorless bandwagon is done. The camera has a price of $800/€850/£769.99 with the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lens and will soon be available. Black, white, silver and red are the colours of choice.
Sample images and movies on Canon JP (click here). For the first, comprehensive review of the EOS M by digitalcamerainfo click here, or jump directly to the conclusion (click here): “Simply put, the EOS M [...] takes the guts of a DSLR and puts it in a body you can put in your pocket” and “The EOS M is [...] a simple-to-use DSLR that won’t intimidate, but doesn’t skimp on the components or build quality“.
So, let’s go for the pre-order links (previews, videos, hands-on and more after the pre-order links). N.B: If you are seriously interested in the Canon EOS M, then act quickly. There will be lots (lots!) of pre-orders and the listed shops will, as usually, have a limited supply at the beginning:

Previews and Reviews:
Philip Bloom (The death of the DSLR  in it’s current form is inevitable), Dpreview and Techradar and Imaging Resource and Spanish hands-on at DSLRmagazine, and German at heise.de.
