Information about one of the two lenses which are rumored to be announced this summer along with the Canon EOS M replacement has been leaked on the web.
Multiple sources agree on the fact that Canon will indeed launch an EOS M successor sometime this summer. The new camera will be much more powerful than its predecessor, which is still regarded as a major flop for the Japanese company.
Canon EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens to be announced this summer
Photographers say that the EOS M is not such a powerful mirrorless camera and that Canon has not fully committed to this form factor. The lack of lenses has been a deciding factor for multiple consumers, but everything is about to change.
Beside the new shooter, the company will also launch two new optics for the EF-M mount. One of these lenses is the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM, which will be exclusively available for the EOS M and its successor.
Canon actually launching three lenses for the EF-M mount?
Information is said to come from trusted sources, who have been right several times in the past. It is the first time that the wide-angle zoom lens is being mentioned, but it would be a nice addition to the mirrorless lineup, despite its relatively slow aperture.
It is worth noting that this lens comes as a contradiction to earlier reports. Previously, it has been said that the company will launch telephoto zoom and a single-focus optics for the EF-M mount. However, this does not mean that Canon will not launch three lenses, making photographers a little more lenient with the Japanese manufacturer.
Canon EF-M 11-22mm lens to sport a 55mm filter in diameter
Furthermore, the Canon EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens is said to feature a 55mm (diameter) filter. Unfortunately, these are all the details regarding the new product.
More information is expected to show up in the near future, but we should not take this rumor for granted. There is still a long time before the supposed release date and we have witnessed wrong rumors before, as Canon has not made any announcements on May 31.
Meanwhile, the Canon EOS M can be bought at Amazon for the price of $479.
