I've used UV filters as lens caps before, get to destination, take UV filter off. Done shooting toss UV filter back on and put into pocket. UV filter get's trashed, thus saving the front element.

I don't find the cap to be much of an issue because as stated it doesn't fit in the pocket anyways.

It still annoys me whether you get it or not.

Ok, would you please help me understand it by attempting to explain it?

Lens cap is very thick, lens is very thin.

Is it the mere fact that those statements are (relative to one another) true, or is there something else?

It seems (and this is not meant to be a slight against you or anyone else) that it is merely a "it's 'thick' for a lens cap on a slim lens" annoyance and not one of practicality or anything else.

I get annoyed by far more simple stuff, so it's not like I'm blameless - just genuinely curious.

I'm guessing the lens hood for the 22mm is a joke. I saw it on Amazon and it looks like a washer.

I bought the one below. Mostly used to protect the lens when I have it hanging from my neck. Bought it after scratching the lens body on a trip to the zoo. :(

I have no idea how this camera isn't being bought up by everyone. This goes everywhere with me. I absolutely adore it. The video quality is cleaner than my 7d. Out of every camera I own in cluding my 5d2 this gets used the most.

Yes, the fact that the lens gets 30% thicker with its lens cap on bothers me enough that I'd pay for a truly slim cap.

I had one laying around so I figured why not try it out on the M:

Forgive the missed focus, manual focus lens in crappy lighting yada yada I know I'm just making up excuses. Cosina 50mm on a 10D body for what it's worth.


Also a random video test, handheld, no rig, with the 22mm at 7.1, ISO 400 IIRC. Straight from the camera, no post. 1080p at 24fps. Internal mic(because I forgot my external at home that day)

That is the same one I got. When on the motorcycle keeping track of lens cap, thick or thin, is a pain but need to protect the lens. I picked up the metal one to go sans cap with and I like the style

I just put the cap in my pocket when shooting. Same I do when I shoot with dSLR. When shooting with 2 dSLRs all caps in the bag.

is it worth getting the lens hood for the 22mm?

The Canon one? seeing how thin it is, I can't imagine it actually being of any benefit. If you really wanted it, you could probably buy a cheap UV filter, knock out the glass and get the same result :)

I would be shocked if it had any flare control with the normal hood because the actual front element is like 1/5 the diameter of the lens.

reminds me of the hood I had for my 17-40...

I was just wondering if there was any benefit to it such as the hood for the 50mm f/1.4 that helps protect the front of the lens from impact and killing the miro usm motor.

I'm a bit weary of seeing the front of the 22mm extend when it's in use.

Yesterday I took my 60D with the 40mm pancake on our daily walk. Compared to similar pictures taken with the EOS-M and the 22mm, it feels like the M/22mm combo definitely has an IQ edge. I like the sharpness and the color saturation on the 22mm better.

Also, despite the relatively light setup of the 60D with the pancake, it felt like I was lugging around a brick after getting so used to the EOS M.

Another thing I noticed was that I had not missed the viewfinder as much as I thought I would. This is different from my past forays into mirrorless cameras, if the camera did not have a viewfinder I found that to be a serious negative. Not so with the EOS M, I think it's because I find the LCD to be superior to the mirrorless cameras I've tried in the past, and also the super small size makes it feel a bit more natural to shoot it like a true point and shoot camera. I've had ergonomic issues with some slightly larger mirrorless cameras (especially when paired with larger lenses) where I felt I was trying to hold the camera like a DSLR but did not have a viewfinder, so it felt awkward.
