“[...] and it’s a great match for the EOS M, where the focal length changes to 18-35mm.”

The focal length does no such thing. It is equivalent to an 18-35mm lens in 35mm terms, but the actual focal length is a physical property of the glass and doesn’t change, regardless of what sized sensor is behind it.

Why - and especially: how?- was this lens mounted for testing on a Canon EOS 700D instead of the Canon EOS M.

This is the lens that convinced me to dump my EOS 60D for the EOS M system.  Every bit as good as the EF-S 10-22mm with only losing 1mm on the wide end and just a tad slower aperture wise.  Definitely a great value.

Seems a nice addition to the EOS-m but why did it not start at 9mm and go to 18mm. The current overlap with the 18-55 is 4 mm which is nearly 40% of the zooms range. If you can’t get the shot at 18mm you would change lens or move backward, So why not change to a non overlapping lens, the two zooms now overlap too much.And 9mm would be a significant wideangle at the wider end. Currently I am using a 10-17mm Tokina UWA on the adaptor and it works great, Sorry, no sale for me Mr Canon.

I have owned the Eos M for about a month now. It came with the 18mm-55mm lens, 90EX flash and EF lens adaptor. All this for £299 at the Photography Show NEC. It was to compliment my DSLR. I was so pleased with it that I brought the EF M 22mm F2 lens on eBay for £75. Now this lens is out, it’s on my wish list. It’s still at a fairly high price on eBay at about £300, but I will definitely purchase one at some point. It would be great if Canon could release a forth lens of say 55mm to 250mm too.

The real world difference between 18mm vs 29mm is rather significant, besides what the numbers on the paper tell you. I suggest you go study up on some photography theory textbooks, instead of focusing on buying more gear.

Well I have now gone through the Eos M (slow focusing) Eos M2 (slightly better focusing and wifi) and now have the Eos M3. Really like this camera now and works well with all 4 lenses, including the 11-22mm. My favourite lens is the 22mm f2. Great low light capability.
