22-55? what a strange focal length

These came out in March 1998 and were marketed with the EOS IX lite (external link) (AKA EOS IX 7 or IX 50) SLR cameras that took APS film (external link) but were also sold as full frame ultrawide zooms. These were "crop" frame film cameras so they needed shorter focal lengths to give a reasonably wide angle. These cameras were selectable for APS-C, APS-H and APS-P. The maximum image size was 30.2x16.7mm.

It came with the old film APS SLRs, so offered a similar field of view to the EF-S 18-55mm, yet was also compatible with 35mm/full frame and so isn't as wide. If I remember correctly the 18-55mm actually covers full frame down to around 20mm, so perhaps they are actually based off the same optical formula yet the 18-55mm is able to go a bit wider due to not having to cover such a large sensor.

Although the EF-S 18-55 goes a wider when used on crop cameras, the EF 22-55 is a much wider lens when used on full frame. 22mm is really wide on a 5D. If I put my EF-S 18-55 with no hood or filter on my 5D using an EF 12 II extension tube in between, I get complete full frame coverage from about 24-40mm depending on the focus distance. In the viewfinder it looks like it covers more but the viewfinder on the 5D isn't 100%. Even 24-40mm is optimistic since the 12mm extension tube leads to a larger image circle than the lens would have used normally.

The optical formulae look similar in concept but different in implementation between the EF 22-55 (external link) and the first EF-S 18-55 (external link) with the different number of elements and different use of aspherics.

Thats what i was suspecting when i saw the FL actually... Those APS film slrs were NEVER very popular were they? I remember a big stink about APS when it came out but it never seemed to get anywhere.. My family only had 35mm cameras

The silver verson of the 24-85 actually has kind of a silver/champagne color, and that is why is is often called "The Goldfinger"

It is slightly goldish. It doesn't quite match the camera body. It also has a smooth finish rather than the slightly textured finish of the silver cameras and lenses. I presume that these 24-85mm lenses matched the EOS IX (external link) for which they were produced.

Wow that Canon version looks so similar as the Nikon 24-85 AF-S I have. Same zoom range, same type of ring ultrasonic motor, same aperture range, even the same filter size.

Suspicious... nah, couldn't be.
