Wideangle prime lens | Canon EF-M | 5985B002

Compact, sharp, cheap, fast... conventional wisdom dictates you could only pick two or three. But this lens has it all! This lens allows me to use my EOS M in a handy belt holster pouch for quick deployment. Over the years, it's been great for impromptu candid grab shots.
