Canon EF-M 18-55 IS STM lens review by Ken Rockwell: This EF-M 18-55 IS STM is the best 18-55mm lens I've tested for Canon.

This Canon EF-M 18-55 IS STM is the best 18-55mm lens I've tested for Canon. This makes perfect sense because the EF-M format allows the lens designers the freedom to place the rear elements much closer to the sensor than the EF-S lenses which have to be designed around avoiding the flipping mirror of DSLRs  I'm sort of ashamed on Sony's part, but the Sony DT 18-55mm SAM and Sony NEX E 18-55mm OSS are poor by comparison. The Sony lenses are much softer and more distorted. Canon doesn't screw around when it comes to lenses; Canon is an optical company first and foremost, not a stereo equipment company like Sony. . . . read more
