So I'll be picking up an M5 used sometime in the next two weeks, but looking for a wide angle solution too. I have been really looking at the Rokinon/Samyang 12 f2, but I'm wavering between it and the EF-M 11-22. I know they each have their pros and cons and they are about the same price. I love my primes and the 12 f2 definitely appeals to me there. Seems like a neat lens, but I don't have a lot of experience with manual focus and the weird interaction between the lens and camera body is a bit of a turn off to me. The EF-M seems like it will just work, so maybe I should just do that. I had the 10-18 before and it was pretty good, but felt super cheap and it was a bit large IMO to go with the M system.

I don't shoot astro, but I would be using it mostly indoors or on vacation. Occasionally for rolling shots of cars (IS could come in handy there). What do you guys think?

I found focus peaking a great help using manual lenses on the M5.

It comes down to your usage really. For me I don't really like MF lenses and I never shoot astro so when it comes to fast UWA lenses, I don't care about wide apertures. I always shoot them stopped down so even if they have a f/2 aperture I would never utilize it.

Thanks for the reply Daniel, I think I've made up my mind to go with the 11-22. It makes the most sense since it's native, AF, and has IS. The Samyang seems neat, but I could see it being annoying as I'm not super patient to take shots when traveling and rarely use a tripod. And you're right, I would likely be stopping down the Samyang, so that f2 benefit may not be super helpful.

A couple of JPEGs from the camera from this week. Found another one of those pesky lizards living right in the middle of the city. The shot of The Galactic Core was taken last night. Jupiter was the bright blue star. I bumped the color and contrast to try and cancel out the effects of shooting with a Tungsten WB (I left my NiSi Natural Night filter at home by accident). It's pretty cool to have a lens that can put out images like these with a single exposure. I think I'd get even sharper results using a computerized EQ mount to allow the lens to track the sky. Otherwise I'm limited to either 10 or 13 second exposures before the stars start to show movement. I also wish I'd shot this with a narrower aperture to get bolder diffraction spikes from Jupiter. The FOV is pretty narrow as well... I had to rotate the lens/camera to fit in what I could.

Candy leftovers from a candymaker. This is the leftover 5 kilogram stub that formed thousands of bits of hard rock candy with words and a heart in the middle of each one. I had no idea these were handmade. The other shot is of our friend Kate who was wearing some blue tinted sunglasses that I thought were cool.

I used the collapsible Industar-22 50mm f3.5 with some extension rings jointed poorly together.

It is a really good lens and when traveling you never know if there's a shot that you need to capture quickly and AF is needed!

Thanks! Also bought an excellent condition, used M5 on ebay while I was at it :-P. I have had the original M for years and have loved it, but it isn't a perfect camera at all. The M5 (probably) isn't either, but looking forward to the faster AF and a lot of the "new" features! I've wanted the M5 since it first came out, but have been waiting til they were in the $400-500 range to buy one. I sold my 17-40L (rarely used) to a friend yesterday, so that took care of most of the cost :).
