Canon EOS-M & EF-M 22mm STM Pancake Lens – First Shots

I’ve had the EOS-M for about a week now, and haven’t really had chance to play with it much.

I have to confess that with the 18-55mm kit lens attached the setup is still a bit bulky for my liking so I managed to get a EF-M 22mm f/2 pancake lens, which really brings this setup into its element.

Today, I spent my lunchtime at Titchfield Abbey, and fired off a few shots to test the setup.

I’m really pleased with the 22mm pancake lens, it’s lovely to use, really compact and light and judging from the shots below, really nice and sharp, see what you think.

Canon EOS-M £199.99 at Argos

Yesterday, I was surfing the web and found that Argos are currently offering the Canon EOS-M kit at the knock down price of £199.99, reduced from £299.99.

Argos – Canon EOS-M Kit

The kit on offer contains the Canon EOS-M, 18-55mm STM Lens and Speedlite 90EX Flashgun.  Given that the Speedlite 90EX is currently being sold at WEX Photographic for £119.99 on its own, I think that the Argos deal is a bit of a steal.

Although the link above is for the black camera, the white, silver and red versions also seem to be on sale for the same price.  Unfortunately the 22mm lens and EF to EF-M adaptor aren’t at similarly reduced prices, but I guess you can’t have everything.
