Most likely...but will they be selling it in the us?

you should ask Helen at adorama what she thinks since her company dropped the M like a hot rock!

M2 around the corner I suppose.

This is starting to sound too much like a leica :)

For 350 the M looks like a great camera.

Here are the first images I could capture last evening: developed in DPP, neutral style, noise and sharpening=0, no vignetting or geometrical corrections, DLO data not available anyway by now. 3 focal setting at two apertures, the naming explains it anyway:

https://dl.dropboxuser​content.com/u/23832864​/EFM11_22.zip (external link)

Thanks so much for making these available! I think the performance is on par or maybe a little less than the Canon 10-22mm. What I noticed the most is the vignetting wide open. It's got to be at least 2 stops. Easily correctable in post though.

Sharpness seems to be pretty decent except of course in the corners. Even with some sharpening in post they are still somewhat soft but that is to be expected.

CA's seems to be very well controlled but that could be just the scene.

Definitely a great lens for $400!

There's 4 images with the EF-M 11-22 I posted over in the EOS-M users forum of POTN if anyone wants to see some sample images with it.

No problems to focus and handholding this fantastic little 11-22 is a gem at the Robbie Williams concert last night here in Vienna:

Nice, that looks like very decent flare resistance,


Some of my lenses focus beyond infinity...!

damn. I want this lens. Currently my body with 22mm lens sits in a box as a weight loss reward. But if I can find a good way to order this to the US, I would do it soon so I can have it when I open the box.

airbutchie - Joe was definitely right about adding contrast...

You might check out reputable overseas sellers on eBay, or maybe a Canadian seller that ships to the US. You will likely have to pay import fees, but that's what it takes to get this lens into the US.

Know of any sites or other forums with some 100% crops. I've just ordered mine for what I thought was a decent price. Relative impulse buy lol (after saying how much I bought 22mm kit to use as a compact). It's so new/rare that no one has decent reviews yet. Guess the no-USA thing doesn't help.
Like how it stacks up against the mirrored brothers like the 10-22 or Tokina 11-16 in IQ.

For what it's worth Dufflover, I think the IQ is infinitely superior to my Sigma 10-20.
A couple of 100% crops from my earlier posting above (taken at 11mm), centre and centre-right.
There is very minimal sharpening applied on these images (deliberately).
Hope this helps.

Cool thanks for the crop uploads :)
Those crops look great for not much sharpening and how much magnification it is on the entire frame above. I paid about $420 AU for mine which I thought was pretty decent for local stock and the IQ looks great for the price.

Ultimately I decided given how rare I need/use UWA the point of pretty much not ever owning one (borrowed the 10-22 for a couple of weeks once, just one real shot done) I would be more likely doing walkaround or touristy architecture or landscape with it, which is where a smaller, stabilised UWA is prob better than one with a faster aperture that I'm paying for and probably won't utilise.

For general walkabout I rarely use an UWA but always have one with me just in case, but it gets used an awful lot when on holiday for building interiors. I normally use a 16-35 f2.8 on a 6D for this (having now ditched my 550D + Sigma 10-20), but I wanted the versatility of an UWA on the M when I go on business trips. I think once you own one, you will find new camera angles and ways to use an UWA to its full advantage. It can take a lot of judgement to achieve undistorted shots at this FOV, but it is much easier than with an 8mm fish-eye, that really takes some thought for composition.
Don't forget that the lens goes to 22mm, and many people on POTN use only the fixed 22mm on their M. I know the zoom isn't as fast, and unquestionably the IQ isn't as good as the fixed 22mm f2 M lens, but it does give you room for manoeuvre if architectural shots are your forté. I wouldn't be without one personally.
