  • Parroting specs from a flawed press release doesn't make it true.  The lens really is all plastic and there is no metal on the exterior.
  • The Canon press release is wrong.  Not the first time a manufacturers press release was incorrect. All of the lenses are painted with the same paint so that the look very similar, but the ...
  • Sorry, but the original Canon press release is incorrect and was probably partially copy and pasted from the previous lenses.  I have the lens in my hands and the exterior is 100% plastic. Not only ...
  • The entire lens is plastic.  I have the lens in my hands it absolutely positively does NOT have the metal shell exterior like the previous EF-M lenses.  The only metal on the outside of the lens ...
  • Plastic vs metal is a personal thing with no real impact on your photos.  I would have been completely happy with an extra 100 grams of metal. I haven't researched it, but I am thinking this is the ...
  • Unfortunately Canon USA is selling this lens in the US.  It must be imported.  I purchased my 11-22mm from Henry's in Canada a while ago.  I just bought the 55-200mm from DigitalRev for $409.  ...
  • Our State Fair starts in a week and I made sure to get the lens in time.  This lens and the 11-22mm should cover everything I need at the fair
  • My main telephoto is a very good copy of the 100-400L.  I bought the 55-200mm as a lightweight alternative when I don't need the extra reach.  At 100mm, the 55-200mm is slightly sharper than the ...
  • Created user reviews Very good, but...
    I currently own all 4 of the EF-M lenses that are available at the time of writing this review.  Similar to the other lenses in the system, the new 55-200mm STM lens has very good optical quality ...
  • What is with this immense hatred of video capability? That's fine if you don't want to use, just ignore that little red button on the back of the camera. The addition of video capabilities have...

  • @stoic little Except that the lines of code needed for video are already fully functional on every other Nikon DSLR. Removing it creates firmware that is actually more specialized and unique.

  • It is far more efficient and ergonomic to put aperture control on the camera body via a dial. Especially with longer zooms like the 70-200 f2.8, you don't want your left hand back by the body...

  • Fewer "bells, whistles, frills" as you put it actually drive up the cost of the camera. Adding video to a camera is practically free as you only need to add a single button and the software to...
