Canon 11-22mm f/4.0-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

The Canon EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens provides a 35mm equivalent focal length of 18-35mm, and features continuous AF with a built-in STM stepping AF motor to provide smooth, near-silent performance that is especially beneficial to video recording. An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to compensate for up to 3 stops of camera shake, while Dynamic Image Stabilization corrects for a wide range of motion while shooting video.

A 7-blade diaphragm allows for pleasing out of focus areas while two UD lens elements help to minimize chromatic aberrations and reduce color blurring around the edges of the subject. In addition, two aspherical lenses are combined to help reduce spherical aberration over the entire image area, as well as through the full zoom range. Super Spectra lens coatings help ensure accurate color balance and high contrast while minimizing ghosting.

    Canon 11-22mm f/4.0-5.6 reviews

    EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding performance and value. And very compact! This is a real gem in Canon's EF-M line: smaller, cheaper and better performance than most of the competition! On the wide end, the lens performs surprisingly well wide open in low light and on the longer end, it actually edged out the 22mm pancake prime for stopped down landscape shooting! The collapsable aspect makes it that much more portable, though it does slow you down a bit. Overall this lens is just a super value. Almost a no-brainer if you already have an EOS-M body but even if you don't, you might still come out ahead in terms of money AND image quality compared with the ultra-wide zoom offerings for many other systems.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Canon EF-M 11-22 mm lens Works Fine This is the first time I used a zoom lens to image the night sky. I set the lens to 12 mm. I was unable to auto or manual focus the night sky. I manually focused the lens on the side of a house that was at a greater distance than the hyperfocal distance of 6.35 feet for f/4 and 12 mm focal length. I used the Manual Peaking option. The lens was now focused for infinity distance. The exposure of the night sky was 4 seconds, ISO 2500, and 20 images. The final processed, aligned, and combined image was fine. It would have helped to have a faster lens but that would be more expensive. I used a 4 second exposure because the Star Trail is about 0.9 pixels in length.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value Ultra Wide Lens Bought this lens in Hong Kong when it first came out. I used this lens on EOS M1. Super small and light weight, making it the perfect combo for travel. On the original M, focus is super fast and quiet. Photo qualoty is excellent, very sharp. One minor issue: To make the lens more compact, Canon put a lock button on the lens. When the lens is fully retracted, you won't be able to shoot and there is a warning message to remaind you to unlock the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon EF-M 11-22mm I absolutely love this lens for my Canon EOS M5. The ultra-wide angle provides the ability to capture landscapes very nicely. The lens is built with higher quality materials, I've noticed the weight of the lens to be on the heavier side in respect to its actual size, which I see as a quality feature. Very easy to use, the built-in IS STM makes for great stabilization for video, as well as very quiet if you need to zoom in a bit. The focal length is also very nice for vlogging. If you have one of Canon's mirrorless cameras, this lens is a quality investment for providing high quality stills and videos.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens I purchased this lens on 6/6/2014 in Japan along with the M2 and all of the then available lenses. Like the rest of the M series lenses, it is incredibly sharp and amazingly small. The focal length is a shot saver in confined areas. I've used this lens in low light conditions and come away with beautiful panoramics.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again. This is a great versatile and small lens for the Canon M3. I truly appreciate that it is a wide angle and allows for me to capture the scene. I highly recommend this lens for someone looking to photograph landscapes or properties (residential, commercial, hotels/resorts).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and inexpensive with great image quality I decided to get this instead of the 16-35mm zoom for my Sony A7. That saved me about $950. The Canon lens on an EOS-M body weighs about the same as the Sony 16-35 lens only. It was nice to have the second system with the ultra-wide, all ready to go without having to change lenses. (Especially during dust storms.) You do have to expand & collapse the lens each time you deploy it but I found it was worth that small extra step for that extra bit of portability you get. (Could hang a little Lowe Dashpoint 30 alongside the other camera.) I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of use and image quality. I once sent back a Tokina 11-16 for being too soft all over but had no such problem here. I even found I preferred the results with this lens over using an adapted legacy lens on the full-frame. That is a significant first. I relied on the camera's autofocus system and was almost never disappointed - even for critical pixel peeping lens tests. (The only failure I noticed was with some thin flowers in the foreground - I really should have taken a bit more time and switched to manual, though that is somewhat tedious with this system...) The corners are acceptable wide open but better at f/8 with less vignetting. I found that was a good setting to leave the lens parked on for landscapes. The wide angle, super depth of field and optical stabilization make for a very easy & forgiving handheld shooting experience. Flare seems pretty well controlled, which is of course important for a lens of this type. Sunstars aren't the best but you can get them - especially at f/22 with a full blast of sun through trees. Distortion was present but not as much as feared and it was surprisingly easy and painless to correct. I found I usually enjoyed the wider end of the zoom more - 28mm equivalent has never been my favorite and as I approach 35mm equivalent, I've got a nice prime lens for the Sony A7 that delivers more robust IQ (at least for pixel peeping - I doubt I could easily tell the two apart in a blind comparison with 13x19 prints). The original EOS-M body encourages a certain point & shoot approach which is fun and handy sometimes but not the best for serious output. There are newer, slightly more advanced body options of course - I made do with what I had. (Manual mode helped nail exposure and the tripod helped get tighter compositions.) The construction is a bit toy-like compared to more expensive lenses but with reasonable care I expect it to hold up more than long enough to get my money's worth. (My other EF-M lenses have.) For the price, it's really not a legitimate minus. Perhaps the biggest weakness for this lens for me would be extreme low light. Focusing on stars is pesky but doable with the other stopless electronic focus lenses I've used, but I just couldn't manage at all with this one. Overall I find this is a very solid addition to the quirky yet fun EOS-M system and a great way to dip your toe in the ultra-wide waters. One step down from full-frame IQ, two or three steps down in size and price - what's not to like!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for travel! So far, so good! I really like the wide end of this lens. There is noticeable barrel distortion, so I'm looking forward to seeing how correction software handles this. Otherwise, the lens does what I want it to do, and it is a great size for travel. I got it to use with a Canon EOS M3.
