Canon 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 overview

  • 1Description

A standard zoom covering wide-angle to short telephoto perspectives, the graphite EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens from Canon offers a 24-72mm equivalent focal length range when used with APS-C-format EOS M-series mirrorless cameras. The optical design incorporates three aspherical elements, one of which is glass-molded and the other two are precision molded, in order to control chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range. The lens placement has also been optimized, and coatings have been applied, to reduce flare and ghosting for increased contrast and clarity when photographing in difficult lighting conditions.

Benefitting handheld shooting with slower shutter speeds, an Optical Image Stabilizer has been incorporated into the lens design to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 3.5 stops. A lead-screw-type STM stepping motor is also featured, which produces fast, smooth and near-silent autofocus performance to support both stills and video applications. For increased control, full-time manual focus operation is also available for making fine-tuned focus adjustments. Additionally, pairing well with the compact form factor of the EOS M-series of cameras, this lens also features a retracting design to shorten its overall length to just 1.75" long during travel and storage.

Standard wide-to-short tele zoom lens for EF-M mount APS-C format mirrorless cameras provides a 24-72mm equivalent focal length range.
One glass-molded (GMo) aspherical element and two precision-molded (PMo) aspherical elements are featured in the optical design, and help to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions for greater sharpness and clarity.
Optimized lens placement and coatings help to control lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality.
Optical Image Stabilizer technology compensates for up to 3.5 stops of camera shake to better enable taking sharp handheld photos in difficult lighting conditions.
Lead-screw-type STM stepping motor offers fast, quiet, smooth, and accurate autofocus performance that is ideal for video recording as well as still shooting.
Full-time manual focus mode (AF+MF) lets you instantly switch to manual focus control in AF mode for making fine-tuned adjustments.

    Canon 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 reviews

    EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens (Graphite) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great overall standard lens for EOS M systems I wanted the smallest zoom lens I could find for my EOS M3 and this fits the bill. It's size is great and keeps the overall system very easy to carry around with you everywhere you go. The quality of the glass is great. Images are tack sharp at all apertures. And distortion is kept to a minimum. The build is mostly plastic, but it doesn't feel cheap and contributes to its overall very light weight. It has the same feel and finish as all the other EF-M lenses. It's IS system is nice and effective and autofocus is quick with this lens as well. The downside is the rather slow aperture speed of this lens. But I understand that is the compromise needed to get it to this size (roughly a little more than half the height of the EF-M 18-55). And I knew this coming into the purchase. I'm quite happy with it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical Focal Length This lens delivers excellent sharpness and focusing performance through out the zoom range. It's compact and when paired with an M10 makes an excellent pocket sized camera combination. Perfect for the times when you want to take landscapes and portraits.
    Date published: 2017-06-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect "walk-around" lens for my EOS-M3! Hard to believe image quality! The 15-45mm focal length (24-72mm to us old film geezers) covers about 90+ percent of my walk-around candids. Razor-sharp and excellent contrast. LOVE IT!
    Date published: 2017-09-14
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small and Light - Perfect for M Series Cameras I wanted a small zoom lens that is not much bigger than the 22 mm, f2.0 lens that has lived on my M camera since I got it. This lens makes the trade off of size for max aperture to keep the size and weight down. I like the small size. So far, with only a few days of use, I like the lens for its size. I do not like having the control of AF on/off and IS on/off being in camera menus instead of a real switch.
    Date published: 2016-02-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Five-ounce wonder Bought this as the kit with a new M-50 camera (which also rates 5 stars in my book). It is light, small, and sharp enough for its role as a general purpose lens. The IS is a plus. It's great for family events. Caution: Be careful or get the hood for this lens, as the front element is way up front.
    Date published: 2018-04-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good kit lens I bought the M50 with this lens and the 55-200. I have been continuously surprised by the clarity and fast auto focus of this lens. Although I have several ef-s and ef lenses as well as a third ef-m now, I find this and the 55-200 used most often. This is a very good walk around lens and the super lightweight of the camera/lens combo have been so nice on my painful back. While I have sold kit lenses in the past because of their mediocre performance, this one will be a keeper for years to come.
    Date published: 2018-07-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good zoom option for the M3 This lens is amazingly compact, not much longer than the EF-M 22mm prime. The manual retraction feature is easy to use. The quality heft and feel are what you're expect from Canon. Auto focus with the M3 is very quick and accurate. Good color, tack sharp front to back @ f/22.
    Date published: 2015-12-22
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Corner sharpness very poor up to F11 Using this lens on the M6, the corner sharpness is terrible. I sent it in for repair and that made no difference. You need to stop down to f11 to sharpen the corners. This is an embarassement of a lens for Canon. Other three EF-M lenses that I own are all much much better. I bought it as a bundle with the camera body; I would recommend buying body only and avoiding this lens. If I could return this lens for refund I would. The M6 on the other hand is quite good.
