Sharpness at 22mm

The sharpness tests for this review were carried out using a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Canon EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lens was attached to a Canon EOS M body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Self-timer mode was activated. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session.

Centre sharpness remains high through from f2.8 to f/11, with f/16 and f/22 being adversely affected by diffraction. The edges aren't nearly as sharp as the centre, with f/2.8 to f/8 producing the sharpest results.
