Canon EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens Analysed by DxOMark

DxOMark published their in-depth analysis of the Canon EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens (price & specs), one of the three available lenses for the Canon EOS M system (price & specs). The EF-M 18-55mm scores a good 13 points, figures for distortion, vignetting and chromatic aberration are very good as is the sharpness of this relatively inexpensive lens ($199).

Tested against the competition – i.e. the Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 and the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ – the EF-M 18-55mm still scores very good and gets one more point.

I guess the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM (price & specs) and the awesome EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM (price & specs) will also soon been analysed by DxOMark.

The Canon EOS M kit with the EF-M 18-55mm f/3.4-5.6 IS STM is on fire sale at Amazon for $327.99 (click here), the kit with the super sharp EF-M 22mm f/2 STM pancake for $399 (click here).
