Lens Review
Introduction | Canon EF-M 11-22mm f4-5.6 IS STM performance | Canon EF-M 11-22mm f4-5.6 IS STM versus Sony E 10-18mm f/4 | Conclusion

On the EOS M the 11-22mm is a good all-round performer, achieving a respectable DxOMark score of 14 points while also attaining a good sharpness score for an ultra wide angle zoom of 10P-Mpix. Distortion and more troublesome lateral chromatic aberration are very low, the latter is negligible while the former (barrel distortion) is really only noticeable at 11mm.

Vignetting at -1.5EV is well controlled for a lens of this specification.
