Introduction | Canon EF-M 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM lens performance | Canon EF-M 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM vs. Canon EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM mounted on EOS 100D | Canon EF-M 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM vs. Competition | Conclusion

With Canon now offering two APS-C systems, with the new ultra small EOS 100D DSLR targeting mirrorless cameras, the EF-M 18-55mm has a direct competitor in its own camp. Comparing the two reveals that the EF-M version performs very similarly to the slightly cheaper ($249) EF-S variant.
