Reviewer and photographer Dustin Abbott reviewed the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, one of the latest additions to the EF-M lenses line-up.
Dustin Abbott praises the good sharpness, well controlled vignette and chromatic aberrations, fast and accurate focus, a very well working IS system, and even the macro mode. All in all the EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM seems to be a pretty valuable addition to the EOS M system.
In the conclusion he writes:
[…] the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens is going to find a lot of takers among those who buy into Canon’s mirrorless system. The lens is the largest Canon-branded lens for the system thus far (by a fraction), though it is still very compact and light. In many ways the size of this lens makes more sense now that the M series has evolved into more of a mini-DSLR than the square-edged original M that had more of a point and shoot profile. The M3 and M5 aren’t really “pocketable”, and thus this lens makes more sense. It is still extremely small and light by DSLR standards, and fulfills the mandate of being a light yet flexible alternative to a heavier DSLR kit.
The Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM comes in two color variants (black and silver) and sells for $499. Dustin’s reviews come as video-reviews (see above) along with a written review with a lot of sample pics.
