Here is a round-up of hands-on reviews and previews of the brand new Canon RF…
At a glance:
- EF-M-Mount Lens/APS-C Format
- 51.2mm (35mm Equivalent)
- Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
- One Aspherical Element
- Super Spectra Coating
- Gear-Type STM Stepping AF Motor
- Rounded 7-Blade Diaphragm
The Canon EF-M 32mm F/1.4 seems to be cute little performer, not an L lens but for sure one of Canon’s better user oriented lenses. From the conclusion:
Focusing performance is good and optical performance is solid across the aperture range. This kind of lens begs to be shot at wide apertures, and it’s good to find that sharpness is excellent, even at F1.4. Coma is also extremely well-controlled, making this lens useful for wide-aperture cityscapes and probably also astrophotography, as well as more everyday subjects like portraiture. Occasional LoCA might be a concern depending on what you shoot, but it’s well-controlled compared to results from most competitive lenses.
[…] the EF-M 32mm F/1.4 STM […] takes up little space, and is clearly quite capable of delivering great results across many different situations. If Canon builds out the EF-M range with additional prime options of a similar standard, we may be looking at a very different system before long. Read the review…
Let’s hope those lenses come sooner than later.
