In reply to:

HaroldC3: There's nothing remarkable about these samples. They are middle of the road from a technical point of view (sharpness, contrast, CA, etc) which is what Canon seems to be these days.

..and all made with cheap consumer lenses!

thenoilif: Can someone explain the benefits of a curved sensor?

less vignetting

Edmond Leung: We all know Canon 22mm is a distortion free (close to 0% distortion) and extremely sharp lens. All the sample photos are with excellent color rendering and very sharp.
Good job! Canon.

well I bet the rendering of the zeiss 24mm will be superb. The 22mm is just very good for the money.
I know because I have the zeiss 35mm ZE f/2 on my 5D

CaMeRa QuEsT: A lens so nice, I've owned it twice! But it was the 18Mp sensors in the cameras I had the lenses attached to, the M and the M2, that always let it down. Now with the M5/M6, there is finally a proper, modern sensor with great DR to go along with it. Alas, both the lens and the new cameras are twice as expensive now.

During the original eos M dump you could find the 22mm for very cheap on ebay.

People who actually own this lens know it is a gem, a low cost gem, not an expensive one like the sony zeiss 24mm f/1.8.
The lens does not have distortion. The sample shown in this thread could be perspective distortion.
I found my sample as sharp as the 11-22mm I own. and that is loads sharper / more pleasing looking than the 18-55mm kitlens of my wifes sony nex cam.

entoman: Better than I expected for a travel zoom, certainly better than the 18-135mm STM that I once owned. Sharp, but with a bit of chromatic aberration around the edges.

It's disappointing that the max aperture is only F6.3 at 150mm, particularly as there are plenty of reasonably compact (EF-S mount) tele-zooms that manage to go as wide as F4.5 at the 150mm setting, but I guess that is the price paid for an M-mount compact lens.

well well to call my statement retarded ;-)

Yesterday I was @ the zoo (b'day party of my daughter).

It was overcast, not a lot of light. Light as in: f/5.6 1/25 iso 100

So rrccad that makes f/16 1/3 sec iso 100.

So it is not retarted in any case to state that in these conditions (f/6.3 1/160 iso800) this lens max aperture over such long FL (63mm-150mm) is somewhat limiting ;-)

On my eosm I never go beyond iso1600, but prefer to stay < iso1000

The f/6.3 is already there @ 63mm

This lens is an outside with sunny weather only lens.

The Silver Nemesis: This is as expected as it can be: the first rather serious attempt from Canon to create a mirrorless camera. The competitors are obiously ahead, and that's just normal at this stage. However, the next iteration should come on top. Otherwise Canon will have a hard time to convince in this camera segment.

Worldwide marketshare tells a different story for Panny and Fuji

In reply to:

Mistyduck: I was hoping to see something about vignetting. I was about to buy an M3 until I read about the horrendous vignetting with some M-series lenses. I wonder if the M5 is any better, or is vignetting inherent in Canon's M-cameras?

Take a look at photozone.de

Vignetting on the M5 is the same as the M or M3.
Vignetting on the 22mm or 18-55mm is comparable to the competition.
The 11-22mm however though being an excellent lens (and cheap) has loads of vignetting but so does the sony 10-18mm.

The 17-55mm f/2.8 has a F-stop of f/3.6 so maybey f/2.8 in DOF term but not in letting in more light (to use lower ISO)

Sonyshine: Do people still use Flickr?

I am surprised after years of Yahoo mis-management that it is still going. I left it years ago.

I'm not surprised smartphones dominate. That is how the vast majority of people take and share their photographs.

Under right light circumstances a modern smartphone can make fine pics being watched only on a 5 to 7" screen

Contra Mundum: The colors are pretty good as you would expect from Canon. But that unfortunately seems to be the only good news.
Canon sensor is still far behind Sony -- dynamic range and noise are noticeably worse. The price is also too high.
Raw converter apparently isn't ready yet, doesn't apply the lens corrections -- vignetting and CA are obvious.

well good luck with your Sony then..

Snapper2013: #5 is incredible and taken with a lowly Canon 7D! Who've thought that could be even possible with a Canon 7D. LOL

It's the photographer not the camera :-)

String: Whats with all of these (I assume?) DSLR users telling us how "big" the E-M1 is? Seriously folks, I can only ask if you have ever even used an E-M1/12-40 combo and a D810/24-70 combo?

This comparison is more fair (with the 16-55mm f/2.8 from Fuji)

Now the Fujinon lens is a lot bigger

Looks like a great lens, but gone is the compact m43 format:

Dragonrider: Clearly you actually like the camera, even if it didn't arrive when you wanted it to. On the UI front, Sony would have done much better to have put the Minolta UI team in charge as Minolta always had very approachable and easy to operate cameras, but clearly that didn't happen. After the Alpha 100 (which I had for years and just gave to my granddaughter), the whole UI went "Sony". The 100 was very "Minolta" and a delightful camera to use. As to 4k, I think Canon is being very careful to avoid features that overwhelm too many users. Note that if you want to do anything with 4k, you don't just need a 4k TV, you need Premiere, which effectively will set you back $600 per year. That is great for those of us who can afford it, but I suspect that Canon doesn't think the center of the mirrorless market is ready for 4k editing and I think they are correct.

...and 4k editing / re-encoding requiers a powerfull pc as well.

Digimat: so mr. canon, all we need now is a snappy compact range of 15mm 1.8, 22mm 1.8, 33mm 1,8 and 52mm 1.8 prime lenses. dont take another 4 years please.

If Fuji can make a decent 18-55mm f/2.8-f/4 why not Canon might you think,

Fuji is a niche market. Canon aims for mass market. The average consumer don't want to pay 649 euro (in europe) for a 18-55mm f/2.8-f/4 lens or they just don't care.

Looking at your gearlist you don't own of have owned a eos-m with the 22 pancake.
So you are talking about a lens you don't own?
