TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that the total production of NIKKOR lenses for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras reached the ninety million milestone at the end of October 2014. Additionally, production of NIKKOR lenses equipped with the Silent Wave Motor (SWM), the autofocus motor developed exclusively by Nikon, recently reached fifty million.
In 1959, Nikon (then Nippon Kogaku K.K) released the Nikon F as well as its first NIKKOR lenses for Nikon SLR cameras, including the NIKKOR-S Auto 5cm f/2. Since then, the NIKKOR tradition has continued. Nikon continues to actively release new NIKKOR lenses utilizing advanced technologies cultivated over its long history, while further expanding its lineup of lenses for the Nikon 1 compact interchangeable lens camera system. Since reaching the eighty-five million lens milestone in January 2014, production of NIKKOR lenses continues at a steady rate.
In addition, total production of NIKKOR lenses equipped with the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) has reached fifty million. Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics, which achieves extremely quiet autofocus photography. In just eighteen years since the 1996 release of the Ai AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/2.8D IF-ED, which was one of the first lenses to employ SWM technology, a total of 72 lenses equipped with a SWM and covering a broad range of focal lengths have been released for both FX and DX-format DSLR cameras.
In September 2014, Nikon responded to a variety of user needs by adding the new ultra wide-angle AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED to its already robust lineup of fast f/1.8 fixed focal length lenses for FX-format cameras. The new 20mm f/1.8 lens utilizes the latest optical design technologies to achieve superior resolution, while the adoption of Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat controls ghost and flare. Lightweight and extremely portable, Nikon’s newest ultra-wide angle lens is ideal for fulfilling one’s photographic vision.
In June 2014, Nikon announced a new super-telephoto zoom lens for the Nikon 1 system, the 1 NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6, the world’s smallest and lightest lens in its class. The 1 NIKKOR lineup consists of twelve lenses with focal lengths ranging from 6.7mm to 300mm (angles of view equivalent to 18mm to 810mm in 35mm format) for coverage from ultra-wide-angle to super-telephoto.

Image quality, vignetting, flare and distortion test results along with specs, measurements and standard product images have been added to the Canon EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens Review
page. Canon EF-M lenses
are compatible only with the compact Canon EOS M
MILCs (Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras). The 55-200 IS STM is the telephoto lens option in the "M" lineup (though others are available via the EF to EF-M adapter). This lens has good image quality with a very small size and light weight.
Please note: Like the T5i
, the EOS M has image sharpness dialed up (by Canon) in-camera. Even though the EF-M lens test results shown use our standard sharpness setting of "1", you will see the sharpness difference when comparing against EOS 60D-based lens test results. The increased sharpness comes directly at the expense of increased high ISO noise and can be adjusted to taste. Still, this is a good lens.
Canon USA is not currently importing this lens. My suggestion is to order your EF-M 11-22mm IS STM Lens
Special thanks to John S for loaning us this lens!
