(Almost) complete list of native EF-M lenses v3

(Updated from my v2 thread comments and newer announces.)

Hi, just because I've done it for myself, I share with you the list of all NATIVE EF-M lenses I found:

8 Canon lenses (with AF):
All Canon lenses are budget-friendly, and well build for this range. Outside the 22mm and the 32mm, all are stabilized. They are meant to be light and compact (all are under 300g.). As a direct consequence the zooms are on the slow side.

- 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM compact for 18-35mm équiv. (a bit shorter compared to the 18-55), stabilized, great optical quality. 220g.
- 15-45MM F/3.5-6.3 IS STM smaller than the 18-55, but full plastic build. 130g.
- 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM original kit lens for the M, full metal finish. 210g
- 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Optically, a good step above the 18-55 kit. Sharper and more homogenous 260g
- 18-150mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM kit superzoom, versatile and compact for this focal length. 300g
- 22mm pancake f/2.0 STM tack sharp and very light. Weak points: visible vignette wide open (easily corrected, especially with the 24mp sensor) and no IS. 105g.
- 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM. First EF-M macro lens. 1:1 ratio and x1.2 with "super macro" mode. two led imbedded for additional lighting when you nearly touch your subject. Compact, 130g.
- 32mm f/1.4 STM the brightest EF-M from Canon. The sharpest too. No IS. 235g. (My favorite!)

3 Sigma lenses (with AF):
Three affordable f/1.4 primes with AF, designed for mirrorless APSC. All of them are a welcome addition to the EF-M system. All three are relatively affordable for this type of lenses, and got good reputation across the mounts they are available on (Sony E, MFT, Leica TL).
- 16mm f/1.4 DC DN, no IS, 405g A bit bigger and on the heavy side compared to the original canon EF-M "rules".
- 30mm f/1.4 DC DN, no IS, 265g
- 56mm f/1.4 DC DN, no IS, 281g

1 Tamron lens (with AF):
- Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III VC tested by Dustin Abott : the biggest size to keep a balanced camera (with M1), optically good for the category, useful all-in-one. 460g.

3 Viltrox lenses (with AF):
Designed for mirrorless APSC, announced but not released yet.
- 23mm f/1.4 STM, +/-260g
- 33mm f/1.4 STM, 270g
- 56mm f/1.4 STM, +/-290g

13 Samyang/Rokinon lenses (Manual focus only):
full manual: focus ring, aperture ring, no electronic contacts = no exifs. Usually, good optical quality/cost ratio.

Designed for APSC mirrorless:
- 8mm f/2.8 UMC II fish-eye very compact 260g.
- 12mm f/2 NCS CS UGA fast and compact, test reports very good optical quality for the cost. Personal test: same sharpness as Canon 11-22mm. 260g.
- 21mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC CS, compact 275g.
- 35mm f/1.2 ED AS UMC CS, 420g.
- 50mm f/1.2 AS UMC CS, 375g.
- 85mm F1.8 ED UMC CS, 344g.
- 300mm f/6.3 ED UMC CS mirror design, very compact for a 300mm, 318g.

EF-M mount but designed for APSC reflex:
- 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS, 580g
- 16mm f/2 ED AS UMC CS, 583g

EF-M mount but designed for FF reflex:
- 14mm F2.8 Mk2, 649g
- 20mm f/1.8 ED AS UMC, 497g
- 85mm F1.4 Mk2, 548g
- 135mm f/2 ED UMC, 210mm f/2 pour less than 600$...but no AF. 830g.

1 TTartisan lense (Manual focus only):
Manual lens designed for APSC mirrorless. Announced this week on DPR.

That's it... 56 native lenses. 15 with autofocus.

Do not forget the EF/EF-S lenses that can be useful and compact enough to work well with the M bodies, with full AF capabilities:
