Canon EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM review by PhilUKNet
Review Date: 3/30/2015 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $340.00| Rating: 9 

Pros: Size, weight, image quality, IS
Cons: Only available in certain parts of the world

This was my third EF-M lens and it is now the lens that stays attached to my EOS M most of the time. The focal range is excellent for general photography, as is the image quality. I can make 30" x 20" prints from this lens and the IQ is fine.

Image stabilisation is less necessary on wide angle lenses, but the IS on the 11-22mm is effective and surprisingly useful. I miss IS when I go back to the EF-M 22mm f/2.

My only real gripe concerning this lens is the difficulty I had buying it. Despite buying my EOS M and other EF-M lenses in Thailand, where I live, Canon (in their infinite wisdom) decided that they wouldn't sell the 11-22mm in Thailand. I therefore had to cross an international border and drive to Malaysia to make my purchase.

This situation also exists in other parts of the world, with Americans having to buy the lens from Canadian outlets.

I am still very pleased with the EOS M system and this lens was the icing on the cake. It's a beauty. See more here:
