Great Walk Around Lens
“When the EOS M cae out I purchased it immediately. It’s smaller then a lot of the point and shoot cameras available, and the quality of the pictures are great. When I bought my camera it only came with the 22m lens. It’s a fast and nice lens, but for every day use, I needed a zoom. The range is great, although it would have been nice to see it go beyond 100mm. Its relatively sdmall and fits in my camera bag for the EOS M. Don’t forget to buy the 52mm UV filter to protect it.” – By Stanley J. Wynman
