I would do a wide angle like the 11-22, a walkaround, like the 18-150, and a fast prime around the 40-50mm area, but I don't think they have that yet. However I would indeed get the EF/EFS adapter, because I would often want to use all my other glass and could then use the 50 1.8 STM as well.

I will only be using the M lenses for this camera. I will be getting the 5D MK IV for the rest.

11-22mm and 18-150 will definitely be in the bag. I just want to see out of the others 5 what would be good, I like the 28mm Macro too and the 55-200mm.

how is this meant to be a "smaller" camera than canons x00 and x000 crop ranges? weight with the ef adapor is 535 grams and 425 without, which is about the same wieght as a lot of them. not a lot smaller dimensionall either. don't get me wrong, i want one, but i don't see the savings?

The SL1 didn't look to be smaller than the other rebels either based simply on stats. However in real life, it is a noticeable difference. I suspect this M5 will come in close to the SL1 specs, and that is indeed smaller than the regular Rebel line. Cannot answer to the weight, perhaps the M5 has a more rigid metal build vs the Rebels employing substantial plastic?

Bottom line, I believe, is that you cannot always trust the specs, you have to try it out in real life to see where it sits amongst the other bodies.

if you can live with a simple prime, the EF-M 22 one of the best primes ever made for aps shooters. Perfect balance of weight, size, and optics. Too bad, it's basically just that one prime that canon offers. Canon doesnt even offer their APS-C shooters an equivalent.


Sony A7riii/A9 - FE 12-24/4 - FE 24-240 - SY 24/2.8 - FE 28/2 - FE 35/2.8 - FE 50/1.8 - FE 85/1.8 - EF 135/1.8 Art - F 600/5.6 - CZ 100-300 - Astro Rok 14/2.8 - Tamron 17-28/2.8 - 28-75/2.8 RXD, 70-200/2.8 VC

I would also like to know the lenses people will be getting for their complete set with this camera. ONLY EF-M lenses, out of the 7 lenses available what would you have in your kit, or all of them?

For my M3 I have the 10-22, 18-55 and 55-200. I don't think I need any more than that. Some faster lenses would be nice I'm sure it'll happen one day. The M series are basically a holiday/day out camera, for anything serious I use a dslr or medium format. People seem to have high expectations for the M5

If you're ok with mf you can find a bunch of Samyang/rokinon lenses...I've got the 12/2...22/2...just wish there was a 50mm prime(there's a 50 f1.2, but I want AF at that length)

Honestly I would rather do that for someone that'll use it than give it away so someone to make a profit.

Maybe but not me. I like mirrorless for the less bulk of the lenses. While the SL1 maybe small it still has to use EF/Ef-S lenses, no upside to it at all IMO. Besides it is still considerably thicker.
