I have the 18-55 and 22 but I have only had the kit for two weeks. I think they both have a purpose and the 18055 is plenty sharp - I have seen many examples of nice keepers taken with the 18-55. It's not that much and you could sell it if you don't like it. You can find them on eBay for around $100 to the door.

Ha. It's not that the 18-55 is bad, but that the 22mm is just that much better. I just picked up the 11-22, and that's a ripping good little lens. Better again than the 18-55. Well, my one anyway. I also picked up the M to EF adapter, mainly for the 40mm pancake. I suspect I'll never use the 18-55 again, as the 11-22, 22 pancake & 40 pancake make an excellent, compact little setup. Covering most of what I like shooting. As long as it doesn't move

I have all of the above, minus the 11-22. I think the shorty/forty is nicely balanced with the M but it does add heft to the M as soon as you mount EF glass on it.

Only if you add zooms. Which I can't understand Canon logic regarding this. Micro 4/3 rds gets it. Lots of small fast primes. Fuji gets it. Dedicated APSC primes, fast and small. Ish.
Although to be fair, it's (the M) not too bad with my 24 & 28 mm f/2.8 primes mounted. Be better if they were M mount though.
Anyway, enough grizzling, here's some pickies from todays cold wet windy ride.

With the 11-22

I'm really liking the 11-22. Never shot with an ultrawide. Quite enjoying it :)

Are you set to ETTL or M under the External Speedlight Control menu? If you want ETTL set it accordingly.

Also is your camera set to shoot without a lens? I imagine it is but you may need to make a change here:
C.FnIV: Operations/Others
Release shutter without lens ==> Set to enable

Set to ETTL, shoots without lens. No ETTL flash.

^Awesome set! I love that first mountain range shot!

How do you like that Rokinon 8mm btw? I'm thinking about getting one of those for my Fuji, I had the 8mm f3.5 for my T2i and it was great.

Actually, I take a bit of that back. I figured out how too PP the 18-55 shots, with much much better results. I like Canons DPP. Better than Lightroom, unless I have to pull back some highlights quite a bit. Anyway, the M files are imported into DPP with the sharnpess setting as follows. Strength 3. Fineness 7. Threshold 1-2. Which gives very average sharpness results. All one has to do, is pull back t he fineness slider to 2 or 3, and the files come to life. Amazingly so. I 'm really surprised just how good the 18-55 files are now. Try it. Much better results than LR.
Just thought I'd share.

The 11-22mm is the main lens I use on the M. So sharp corner to corner. Its great for doing panorama-like shots for example, without the bother have having to stitch.

It's great. I love how small it is:

I mainly use it for shots like this:
IMAGE: https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3852/14357312897_e8a99f2d0a_c.jpg

I'm not great at manual focusing (mainly because I'm lazy) so I try to find the hyperfocal distance for whatever aperture I'm at and then leave it there. Here's a 100% crop to see how that worked out for me amongst the fore- and backgrounds on the last photo:

Wow I have seriously been away from this thread for too long.
Glad someone has picked up the new Samyang offerings as I have been wanting/lusting after the 10mm. I love the 22mm however there are just those times that I wish I had something wider and getting the 11-22mm would seem to be a bit expensive and hard to get in the US.
For all those in the US where are you getting your 11-22mm and does anyone have it and one of the new samyang's to compare?
