Canon's First Mirrorless Camera, The Canon EOS-M with EF-M 22mm F/2 STM Lens

Ready to put your creativity in motion? Well first you've got to get into gear and that means choosing the right tools for the project. 

The new Canon EOS M digital camera equipped with the new EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lens might just be the perfect solution for photographers by encompassing all of Canon's most innovative and key technologies that both creative individuals and seasoned EOS users alike can really get excited about! The EOS M digital camera is Canon's first mirrorless digital camera and takes high-quality stills and movies due to its full HD 1080 video capture with smooth, quiet continuous autofocus made possible by Movie Servo AF and STM lenses, advanced CMOS sensor technology and the processing power of DIGIC 5. 

The M's use of an APS-C sensor will cheer those wanting SLR quality in a small camera. The new EF-M mount supports shorter back-focus lens designs, like the new $300 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, available separately. With the $200 EF-EOS M mount adapter, the EOS M is also compatible with Canon EF-S and EF lenses up to 600mm. The Canon EOS M has a small rubber grip in the front, and an AF-assist lamp shines out from above the infrared remote sensor, both nice features to have. You can expand your creative possibilities even further by pairing your EOS M with the new EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lens included with this EOS M lens kit. The new Canon EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lens is a wide-angle lens with a sleek and ultra-slim design that has both aesthetic and portable appeal. 

The EF-M 22mm has an f/2.0 aperture that is perfect for low light shooting and also for creating beautiful background blur. Plus with a minimum focusing distance of 5.9 inches you can bring your subjects even closer. While Canon's new EF-M 22mm f/2.0 STM lens comes bundled with this kit, you can always add variety to your shots by pairing your new Canon EOS EF-M digital camera with any models from Canon's family of interchangeable lenses!
