Here ya go. Quick & dirty comparo. The 22 & 18-55 are the same diameter.

In my opinion, & from experience, that's not something that's pocketable. Maybe a perverts trench coat pocket, but not my trousers pocket :)

And just for comparisons sake, here it is vs my Panny LX7. The Panny has built in flash, great manual controls, a 24-90 f/1.4-2.2 FF equivalent really sharp Leica lens, lightening fast AF and fits in your pocket :) I personally wouldn't bother with the 18-55, but it came in the kit. I honestly think the Panny gives better results.

The 18-55 is useless, massive and non-pocketable period.

Treat the M as a fixed, fast 35mm camera. That's how it's meant to be used ;)

Hi all. Just read through the entire thread as I have an EOS M ordered to pick up just after Christmas. I am upgrading from an IXUS 80 IS, so I am looking forward to getting it in my hands!

One question for the assembled knowledge, I have a some Practika B mount glass from my film SLR days (28mm F2.8, 50mm F1.8, 70-210mm F4.5-5.6), and seeing the manual lens images here made me think about using these lenses with the M. However I have searched around the web for an adapter and cannot find one that will do the job. Does anyone know of one, or would it be worth going via an intermediate mount? I have found PB-Nikon [1] and Nikon to EF-M [2] units for sensible prices, could these work together?

[2] http://www.ebay.co.uk …era-Adapter-/221157693915 (external link)

2nd thoughts - the EF and PB mounts are both 44mm flange distance (according to Wikipedia), and there are PB->EF adapters available, so maybe one of those and either the official or Mieke EF->EF-M adapter is the more sensible route.

It's meant to be used as a tool to get the shot, if that shot requires more range than there's nothin wrong with using the zoom. I can understand that in Australia it might seem ridiculous to pocket the zoom, but where I live I wear a jacket at least half the year and I can easily pocket a lens that size. As I've said, right now I usually have a 50mm + adapter in one pocket, that setup is larger than the zoom.

I use the 18-55 at home where I'm not worried about carrying it around. When I take the M along on a shoot, it's got the 22 mounted for "pocketability."

, my first step up from a 5MP P&S was the Panny Lumix FZ-18. I have many good images taken with it on our trip to Europe a few years back. I've always wondered if the LX line could do as well as other mirrorless bodies.

During the week of Thanksgiving I took my EOS M on a trip to Paris. I really enjoyed it because I was able to have full control over my photos without lugging around a kit that required its own backpack. My fiancée graciously carried the 18-55 in her day bag, but I kept the 22 on most of the time and shot most of my photos with it. The lenses are small enough that we didn't mind carrying both, but I would consider bringing only the 22 in the future. The ability to shoot in very low light was indispensable, and the outdoor daylight shots were sharp enough that you can do quite a bit of cropping and still have a decent image.

This. The 22mm should almost be considered a zoom because of the ability to crop images taken with it. It's amazingly sharp. :D

This was my intention, but I'm finding I still need a zoom for general travel photography. Perhaps my idea of adding an LX7 or S110 is a better way to go. One around the neck and one in a belt pouch.

I agree with the others. It's a lot of fun to bring the M with the 22mm out and about. You get used to not having a zoom quite quickly.

I think you should try and get your stories straight. Taken from the other M lens thread

My favorite vintage lens on my M is my Yashica ML 50mm f/2. It's about the same size as the 22mm so when coupled with the adapter it's still very small and it's super sharp with great rendering.

If you want to try carrying around a bulky zoom attached to your camera in your pocket, that's fine. Good for you. But don't try & convince everyone Black is White, when it clearly isn't.

You're joking, right? The adapter itself is already thicker than the 22mm. My 50mm is NEARLY the same size as the 22mm, I've posted pics of it here before. I also usually use it with a screw on lens hood. So before you go flaming me for literally no reason, lets take a step back and remember it's Christmas.

I maintain that the 18-55mm is still a very compact lens and could easily be carried separately in a pocket. In my experience with it the AF is noticeably quicker, it's completely silent and it's zoom is very smooth, it's by all means a great little lens. I don't prefer zooms usually, but there are some situations where it's undoubtedly handy to have.
