  • 1 UD lens and 1 aspherical element
  • 22% shorter and 31% lighter than EF-S 55-250mm F4-5.6 STM (but half a stop slower with less reach)
  • 3.5 stops IS
  • AF accelerated with motor and algorithm optimization
  • full-time manual focus
  • uses ET-54B hood

Well, if this turns out to be true, it's a good indication that the news of EOS M's demise is greatly exaggerated....

Ouch, 4.5-5.3:(( this is probably first M lens I will need to pass. And 250 is more appealing.

Will see if the price will be right, who knows — may be:)

It's even worse than that, it is 4.5 - 6.3, but it looks only slightly larger than the 18-55, they probably figure that it won't compete w/ the 55-250 in this configuration.

Tele is not my thing, and I prefer to get a bigger, but longer and brighter option for occasional shooting (moon, birds, far standing objects). Even old FD mount manual lens will do it for me:)
