    You want too much.

    It had been said we can see completely different mount and lenses soon.

  • Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today introduced a new EF-M wide angle fixed-focal-length lens, the EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM. The EF-M lens is both compact and lightweight, serving as an ideal addition for any photographer shooting with an EOS-M series camera. Entry and enthusiast-level photographers who are passionately seeking to take their photography skills to the next-level will find this lens to be a great addition for portraiture, landscapes or\ general travel photography.

    "As Canon continues to expand the company's EF-M lineup, it is very important that users are provided the tools they desire for a variety of shooting situations," said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. "The new EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM lens delivers great image quality in a compact and lightweight form factor, allowing photographers to capture the images they envision when they pick up their camera."

    The EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM lens is the second EF-M lens to feature a large-aperture, delivering stunning bokeh with a soft blurred background that helps photographers isolate their subjects. In addition, the 32mm focal length converts to approximately 51m in 35mm format, providing an angle-of-view close to the field-of-view of the human eye.

    Additional noteworthy features of the EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM lens include:

    • 14 elements in eight groups, including a glass molded aspherical lens
    • Super Spectra Coating technology and optimized lens element placement helps minimize ghosting and flaring
    • Lead gear-type STM stepping motor to help provide smooth and quiet focus operation when taking photos, and near-silence when shooting video
    • Wide focusing ring with full-time manual focus capabilities
    • Compact and lightweight design: maximum diameter of 60.9mm, total length of 50.5mm and approximate weight of 235g
    • Maximum magnification of 0.25x and minimum focusing distance of 0.23m

    Availability and Pricing

    The EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM will be available for purchase in late September 2018 for an estimated retail price of $479.99*. Included accessories for the new lens are Canon lens cap E-43, lens hood ES-60 and lens case LP-1014.

    Centre sharpness is very good at the widest aperture of f/1.4. It is sharper again at f/1.8, becoming ever so slightly sharper again at f/2.0, where it remains roughly the same until around f/4.0. Sharpness drops a touch at f/5.6, a little more at f/8, before dropping to very good at f/11. Sharpness is least impressive in the center at f/16, but the overall impression of detail when looking at images at normal web or printing sizes is still very good. Moving to the edge of the frame, the sharpest results can be seen between f/5.6 and f/8, being slightly softer at either end of the aperture range. Again, the overall impression is detail good throughout the range.
