EF-M 11-22mm - Any risk of buying overseas?
Jul 11, 2013

Like many here, I'm anxiously awaiting Canon to release their EF-M 11-22mm.

However, based on recent chatter, it seems like Canon does not plan to release this lens to the US Market, for the time being.  I'm really perplexed.  Why?  It seems like this type of lens might help save the platform...?

Anyway...  I'm traveling to the UK soon.  Any risk at buying overseas, other than warranty and perhaps price?

Is there a chance that an EOS-M in the U.S. will not have the firmware to be able to use an 11-22mm...?

Tks!
