Canon announces EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM

Canon has announced the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM - an image-stabilized wideangle zoom for its EOS M mirrorless camera. It's Canon's first wide zoom with IS, promising three stops of stabilization for stills and 'Dynamic IS' for video. A linear stepper motor offers silent autofocus during movie shooting, and a retractable barrel design makes the lens about the same size as the 18-55mm kit zoom when collapsed. It should be in shops at the end of June, at an MSRP of 379.99 / 399.

Canon has also announced a version 2.0.0 firmware update for the EOS M, which the company says will offer full compatibility with the 11-22mm (to prevent the camera from shooting with the lens in the collapsed position), and bring a much-needed improvement in autofocus speed with all lenses. The firmware will be available to download from Canon's support website at a date that has yet to be confirmed.

The 11-22mm uses a 55mm filter thread, which isn't shared with any other current Canon lens. This means the company has introduced two new products to complement it - the E-55 front lens cap, and a 55mm 'Protect' filter.
