ISO 12233 resolution chart, flare, distortion and vignetting test results are now live on the Canon EF-M 22mm f/2 STM Lens Review page.
 
Obviously, these tests had to be shot with the new Canon EOS M MILC (Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera). My Canon EF-EOS M Adapter just arrived, so I'll get some direct camera comparisons online in the near future.

From Nikon:
 
TOKYO - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that total production of NIKKOR lenses* for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras reached seventy-five million at the beginning of November 2012.
 
*Interchangeable lenses for Nikon SLR cameras and Nikon 1 advanced cameras with interchangeable lenses
 
Nikon (then Nippon Kogaku K.K.) released its first NIKKOR lens for Nikon SLR cameras, the NIKKOR-S Auto 5cm f/2, in 1959 along with its first SLR camera, the Nikon F. Since releasing that first lens many years ago and establishing the NIKKOR tradition, Nikon has expanded its lineup of interchangeable lenses, recently adding a line of interchangeable lenses for Nikon 1 cameras and bringing total production to seventy-five million.
 
At the end of May 2012, total production of NIKKOR lenses for Nikon SLR cameras reached seventy million. Since then, Nikon has continued to actively release new NIKKOR lenses.
 
In June 2012, Nikon released the compact and lightweight AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR, a normal zoom lens compatible with the Nikon FX format, offering a frequently-used range of angles of view, and support for a wide variety of photographic scenes, as well as the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, an ultra high-power zoom lens compatible with the Nikon DX format and offering a 16.7x zoom ratio. In addition, AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR was announced its release, the Telephoto zoom lens compatible with the Nikon FX format.
 
New lenses for Nikon 1, Advanced Cameras with Interchangeable Lenses, have also been released recently. In November 2011, the 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8, an extremely light fixed focal length lens with the fastest maximum aperture of f/1.8 was released, and in September 2012, the 1 NIKKOR 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 2.5x normal zoom lens was released. In the year that has passed since the October 2011 introduction of the Nikon 1 system, Nikon has released six 1 NIKKOR lenses, including a low-profile fixed focal length lens, a normal zoom lens, and a high-power zoom lens.
 
NIKKOR lenses are extremely popular with a wide variety of users, from beginners to professional photographers. The lineup currently consists of more than 80 types of lenses, including zoom lenses, ultra wide-angle to super telephoto lenses, and specialty fisheye, Micro, and PC-E lenses for SLR cameras, as well as 1 NIKKOR lenses for NIKON 1 cameras. Nikon will continue to actively develop and release high-performance, highly functional products that meet and exceed user expectations.

Canon U.S.A., Ron Howard And The Public Select 91 Winning Photos For "Project Imaginat10n" Which Will Inspire Short Films Directed By Eva Longoria, Jamie Foxx, Biz Stone, Georgina Chapman And James Murphy
 
Ron Howard Chooses One Winning Photograph, "Discovering limits" by David Saylor from Melbourne, FL for the "Discovery" Theme to be Represented in All Celebrity Director Films
 
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., November 9, 2012 - Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, Ron Howard and the public, have selected 91 winning photographs from the "Project Imaginat10n," contest where five innovative celebrities - Eva Longoria (film and TV actress), Jamie Foxx (Academy Award® winner), Biz Stone (co-founder of Twitter), Georgina Chapman (designer and co-founder of Marchesa) and James Murphy (founder of LCD Soundsystem) - will direct short films based on ten of the photos.
 
A consumer vote helped narrow down the photographs, where one of the selected winners' photos was chosen by Ron Howard in the "Discovery" category to be a thematic tie across the celebrities' films. The directors will now each select one additional photograph from the other nine storytelling categories that personally inspire them, ultimately utilizing ten photos to represent their creativity and imagination. In addition to "Discovery," the themes include Character, Mood, Goal, Backstory, Setting, Obstacle, Relationship, The Unknown and Time. The winning photographs determined by Ron Howard and the consumer vote can be seen at imagination.usa.canon.com.
 
Ron Howard said, "In choosing 'Discovering limits' for the Discovery category, it was important that I picked an image that was tremendously imaginative, visually fantastic and thematically pliable so that it could give the filmmakers a lot of possibilities to inspire an element of mystery and suspense. Moments of discovery are often what you remember most in a film."
 
Howard added, "This image suggests discovery through reflection or through isolation while also suggesting a range of tonal possibilities as well. It's also just a very unusual and emotionally interesting image."
 
In 2011, Ron Howard and Canon U.S.A. partnered for a similar creative endeavor, "Project Imagin8ion." Eight photos were selected and influenced an award-winning short film, "when you find me," directed by Bryce Dallas Howard. For year two of Canon's "Long Live Imagination" campaign and the next endeavor, "Project Imaginat10n," Ron Howard will once again mentor the celebrity directors as they begin the filmmaking process to prove that "we're all creative."
 
"I am so passionate about the integrity and user-generated process of 'Project Imaginat10n' where our celebrity directors can be directly inspired by photographers from all across the country," said Ron Howard. "As we selected the photographs, I was blown away by the beauty, perspective and intrigue that they conveyed, and was thrilled that so many people wanted to once again take part in this exciting artistic experiment."
 
The celebrity directors are currently reviewing the winning photos to make their selections, craft their stories, develop their scripts and prepare to produce their own short films with Canon's Cinema EOS System and DSLR cameras. The films will be produced by Freestyle Picture Company, which also produced "when you find me" in 2011. All five films go into production between Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 and will premiere at a special "Project Imaginat10n" Film Festival. The "10" in "Imaginat10n," represents ten films that will ultimately be produced - five additional directors will be announced at a later date.
 
The 91 winners of the photo contest span in age from 16 to 67 years-old and are from across the country.
