Canon Unveils the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6: A Wide-Angle Zoom for the EOS M

Canon has today announced to the masses the an 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens, expanding the company’s EF-M lens line with an ultra-wide barrel of glass fit for the EOS-M mirrorless compact system camera.

It’s the first wide zoom Canon’s bringing to the market with 3-stop optical image stabilization, and features a slick linear stepper motor perfect for the folks who require silent auto-focusing when shooting video (along with “dynamic IS for steady movies”).

Its relatively small size means you shouldn’t have much of a problem lugging it around, thanks to its retractable lens design (a first for the EF line). Comparatively speaking, it’s about the size of Canon’s 18-55 kit zoom lens.

Canon has also announced a new update to the EOS M firmware that guarantees full compatibility with this new ultra-wide. The update will prevent the camera from snapping shots while the lens is in its collapsed position.

If you’re interested in picking one up, it should be available at a photography store near you by the end of July. The cost is reported to be set at £379.99 in the UK. US pricing is yet to be announced, but may hover in the $ 500-$ 600 range.
