If you have only EOS M and EOS full frame, there is no sense to buy EF-S lenses. Then you buy real EF lenses for FF and EF-M lenses for M.

Absolutely. And the bonus is, the M lenses focus faster than the USM & STM EF & EF-S lenses that I've tried on mine, & that's with the Canon adapter. All win as far as I can see.

you think a EF-M 22mm will focus faster on the eos-m than a USM lens on a body like a 7D/70D?...there may be something wrong with mine then...cause speed is definitely not it's strong suit...

i'm pretty sure malveaux doesn't just have FF, and M, i think there's a crop body in there

I didn't say that. What may have been misconstrued, is that a native M lens will faster quicker on an M body, than an EF or EF-S USM or STM lens via an adapter on an M body. In my experience.
Forgive me for being a little vociferous, when people complain about slow unusable AF, when they can't even be bothered to buy native lenses for the system, and only use the acknowledged slowest focusing lens in the system. That is all.
You are correct. Speed is not its forte. Never said it was. It is however, far far from unusable.

So I have been back and forth. I tend to buy and sell both camera bodies and various lenses as my needs/styles change.

I had an EOS M and became frustrated due to lack of lens ranges at the time. Why? I was trying to make it work like my 1D Mark IV and use the same lenses. Sold it all and missed it. I agree with the point that a native lens will always work better.

Also it is useful to use the right tool for the right job. I do not use my 5D Mark II for sports--tried it and became frustrated and sold it. I did however repurchase one for portraits and swear by it for that role.

I have an SL1 (with the plan that it would replace the M system) and generally like it but still felt like it was bulky compared to my former EOS M. So I purchased an M with the 22mm lens. Then I realized that my use was primarily travel, landscape, and general street photography. It is the perfect system to always have in the vehicle. Picked up a new 90ex flash for $45 and a low priced authentic Canon EF adapter. I find the 11-22 to be small, portable and a fantastic lens. Basically, I will likely sell the adapter since I have the 22, 18-55, 11-22 and the 55-200 is on order. Expensive? Yes. I believe it getting the right tools for the right purpose. The M is the ideal system for my intended purposes.

The SL1? It looks like I will gift it to my niece at some point who has taken a strong interest in photography (and uses it more than I do anyway).

Each to their own. I am sure the flames will begin but for me, the M system fits my needs for travel, etc. The 5D Mark II is for portraits and the 1D Mark IV for sports. The M will also be on sports but for crowd scenes, sidelines, etc..

I am fortunate to have built my collection over many years but it contains what I use on a regular basis for specific purposes. I truly appreciate all of the thoughts and input here. It, along with a lot of other research, has been incredibly helpful in my decision making process. POTN itself is a great resource.

Heya,

Yeap... several cameras, full frame, several APS-C's, and the EOS-M.

The EOS-M is by far the slowest AF system. The EOS-M lenses are not fast either. They're not USM. Also, a USM lens on the EOS-M still focuses faster than the EOS-M lenses. I used my 85 F1.8 with a generic fotodiox adapter on the EOS-M, and it still focused much faster than the 22 F2 pancake for the EOS-M did. EOS-M lenses are about as fast as non-USM lenses. They are fast enough for general purpose, but still slow. USM is simply faster. Even on the `M with an adapter. I did notice heavier, bigger USM telephotos were slow on the EOS-M too. But the smaller USM primes are snappy on the EOS-M. I only did it as a test. I use the 22mm on the EOS-M 99% of the time otherwise. And I find I use the EOS-M more and more, it has easily surpassed my other cameras for overall usage, simply because it's smaller, goes every where, is less obtrusive, and does the day to day stuff that I don't want to lug a big SLR around for (kid, outside, landscape, general walk around, travel, etc). I drag out my full frame for portrait. And my APS-C's for macro/wildlife and some secondary landscape, etc.

Very best,

update on the purchase from digital rev.. the shipping was super fast as i stated earlier, but i just got a bill from dhl about the customs and duties cost, it wasn't alot, only $15 but that and the charge in my foreign exchange it all adds up to be more expensive then ordering from the canadian supplier. keep in mind that i live 2.5 hrs hours from the border and have family in vancouver so i would have been able to get it without customs or duties. as for pics, i'll have to ask my daughter to download some when she used it at the grand canyon last week.
