Hello, everyone! I'd like to know which of the two lenses focuses faster with the Canon EOS M6 Mark II.If there are any users of both lenses I will be happy for them to share an opinion. Thanks in advance!

Hi Yall, I was wondering if anyone knows if it's okay put on a step-up ring, a variable ND filter, and a filter bracket on the canon 22mm f2 lens? I think there's a weight limit on that lens but I'm not sure the exact weight it can hold. Thanks!

Hi, why I always read that this lens is sharp and I get soft images at f/2 and even f2.8 a few times? Is this motion blur or soft? Also is the following photo (from dpreview sample images of this lens) sharp? Or is it just me who thinks that it's a bit soft at his face and could be sharper? I' m seriously thinking to migrating to Fuji. I preferred the canon camera over the fuji X-T30 for the fast f2 aperture of this pancake lens, so I could have a nice pocketable camera. Or may I have...

I've got a 52mm set for my lenses and a 43-52mm step up for the EFM 22mm f/2.  When I attach it I feel like the lens can't retract all the way anymore when powered off.  Obviously I removed it right away but I was wondering if leaving the step up on could be damaging and if you know of a deeper step up ring model that would not suffer from this flaw.

Hi all, I am going on a one-week trip to Greece this summer I was thinking of upgrading my system for better image quality(I currently have the Canon G7 X Mark II). The G7X fits in my jeans pocket, but will the G1 X M3 fit the same? if it will not, then I will probably buy the M50+22mm+18-150mm, and use the 22mm for low-light, just at restaurants, and the 18-150 for everyday normal daylight usage. Is the IQ about the same between those cameras? BTW I had a Canon PowerShot G3 X, and it felt...

I'm finally sick of my kit lens and looking to upgrade to an affordable, versatile prime. I never use autofocus anyway, so I'm mostly looking at manual lenses. The general consensus out there seems to be to get the Canon 22mm F/2 at this point, but the Zonlai 22mm F/1.8 caught my eye because it actually looks better in a few respects (technically better in most respects and images have a bit more character) than the Canon and is about 25% cheaper. The third option I'm looking at is the Kamlan...

Hi folks. I have a Canon EOS-M50 which I bought with the 15-45mm kit lens. This didn't come complete with a hood (why not?) and the hoods are expensive for what they are. I'm about to pull the trigger on the 22mm f2 prime and I've read that it has a hood available too. Am I going to need it? I don't notice the lack of a hood being a problem with the kit lens so is it likely to be a problem with the 22mm? I know, more or less, how to avoid lens flare and I also know how to use it to my...

Hi! I hope you guys won't mind my asking about this, but I recently bought a 11-22mm for landscape shots etc but then thought hey! why not try Astrophotography and realised oh cr*p there isn't a preset for it like the gx series. So, i wondered if anyone has tried this lens to capture moving stars? if so, what settings did you use? Eventually I plan on buying the EF-M 22mm f2 but that's after I save up for some time. Thank you in advance! :-)

Hi, I'm an amateur photographer, mostly take photos for Instagram with my smartphone. I also have Nikon D3000 + 35mm f/1.8G lens, because i really love portrait + city photography and shallow depth of field. Recently I decided to switch to Canon EOS M platform. I find my Nikon: Too old Too big Too heavy for traveling 50mm equivalent is less flexible than 35mm equivalent Reading through https://www.dpreview.com/articles/2666934640/what-is-equivalence-and-why-should-i-care I understood, that...

Hi, I recently got my M10 and 22mm 2.0 but I have been quite disappointed with the amount of bokeh that I get when I am taking portraits. So I have been looking into some other lenses that may give better results and after extensive searching online, it seems like either 50mm 1.8 or 1.4 is a reasonable option for me. But seeing that 50mm 1.8 is only 0.2 different from my 22mm in terms of focal length, I was wondering if this would still make a whole difference in terms of bokeh.. or would...
