Okay, still far from ideal weather, but here goes. I have compared the EF-M 18-150 with the EF-M 18-55, both wide open at f/3.5 on as close as I could get identical shots. The first image is the whole scene from the 18-150 @ 18mm f/3.5. The post following shows crops from the new 18-150 then the old 18-55 for direct comparison. I chose the far left side for 100% as it showed the difference the best with what I had available. All shots processed in DPP with appropriate Canon profiles - had forgotten what a dire piece of software DPP is!

I did the same test with the new lens at 150mm wide open and compared it to the EF-S 55-250 set to 150mm wide open. The only discernible difference was that the EF-S is a faster lens. As far as IQ was concerned I could tell no obvious difference anywhere across the image between them. I don’t see any point in posting those comparisons for that reason.

Crops from the new 18-150 then the old 18-55 for direct comparison from the scene above (no that is not camera shake on the EF-M 18-55 image, it really is that bad at the side and perfect in the middle). I chose the far left side for 100% as it showed the difference the best with what I had available. In the centre there is little to distinguish between them.

And just after I have posted some images from a very grey day, there is at last a good review from a couple of days ago showing up in web searches...:rolleyes:

At least they think the same as me from the lens sample they have, although the review has the benefit of the higher-res M5 over my original M mk1.

Here's hoping for an Adobe RAW profile real soon for LR, along with some sunshine.

Finally some sunshine and time to edit the photos. Manualy estimated distortion correction (it's only slight) and a small amount of edge sharpness improvement, just like a real profile would. Allegedly DXOptics will have an EF-M 18-150 profile available in February, not sure about ACR as that info always seems to be on a need to know basis, and Joe Public doesn't need to know ;-)a
EF-M 18-150 not in the POTN lens database yet by the looks of it. This shot was @40mm f/6.3, but that is listed in the Flickr info.

Another shot with the new EF-M 18-150. I used this lens for two weeks around India on an original EOS M and I'm very pleased with the focal range it covers and the quality of the images I have back.
Still no profile from Adobe alas, and DXO Optic Pro have delayed their profiule for this lens by another 2months -? I have found that at 18mm, the profile for the old EF-M 18-55 is about right if dialed back a bit.

How do you like the lens at 150mm? I'm thinking of picking this up to get the extra range if the quality justifies the purchase.

Thanks.

It's good across the range Gart, although not a constant aperture. There's an image earlier at 150mm. I will find some others to post from my India trip using this lens in due course, incl. at 150mm

I didn't look hard enough to find the one at 150mm. It looks good for what I would be using the lens for (travel).

Appreciate the response.

No problem. Here's another couple @ 150mm, first wide open f/6.3, second @ f/8. It's not perfect, but no worse than any other super-zoom, and a bit of extra fine sharpening cleans it up nicely IMHO. For travel it's ideal, but I wouldn't use it for commercial shots. I had more problems due to atmospheric conditions than lens performance issues in India - haze, heat shimmer, and pollution in the cities softening images of things far away.

And here is one at 150mm f/8.0 where I wasn't suffering from atmospheric issues.

Thanks for posting the shots.

Yet more with the EF-M 18-150 on an M mk1. Slowing going through about 4000 pictures taken using it in India on a recent trip, and liking what I'm seeing in image quality.
