Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM
(From Canon lens literature) Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has introduced a new EF-M wide angle fixed-focal-length lens, the EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM. The EF-M lens is both compact and lightweight, serving as an ideal addition for any photographer shooting with an EOS-M series camera. Entry and enthusiast-level photographers who are passionately seeking to take their photography skills to the next-level will find this lens to be a great addition for portraiture, landscapes or general travel photography.
"As Canon continues to expand the company’s EF-M lineup, it is very important that users are provided the tools they desire for a variety of shooting situations," said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. "The new EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM lens delivers great image quality in a compact and lightweight form factor, allowing photographers to capture the images they envision when they pick up their camera."
The EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM lens is the second EF-M lens to feature a large-aperture, delivering stunning bokeh with a soft blurred background that helps photographers isolate their subjects. In addition, the 32mm focal length converts to approximately 51m in 35mm format, providing an angle-of-view close to the field-of-view of the human eye.
Additional noteworthy features of the EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM lens include:
- 14 elements in eight groups, including a glass molded aspherical lens
- Super Spectra Coating technology and optimized lens element placement helps minimize ghosting and flaring
- Lead gear-type STM stepping motor to help provide smooth and quiet focus operation when taking photos, and near-silence when shooting video
- Wide focusing ring with full-time manual focus capabilities
- Compact and lightweight design: maximum diameter of 60.9mm, total length of 56.5mm and approximate weight of 235g
- Maximum magnification of 0.25x and minimum focusing distance of 0.23m

The EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM will be available for purchase in late September 2018 for an estimated retail price of $479.99*. Included accessories for the new lens are Canon lens cap E-43, lens hood ES-60 and lens case LP-1014.

Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM User Reviews
10 out of 10 points and recommended by Perry Rhodan (41 reviews)Well canon did it. At last ;-) Bokeh, IQ, AF speed and smooth, Focuslimiter!None
Well my M5 was waiting for it. I almost told the M5 .. don 't hold your breath on this. Was doing ok with all the nice ef and efs lenses that work as well on the M5 as on my 80D. But a smaller and lighter "fast" and "normal" was badly needed. The 32 makes the M-line really shine. The addition of the focus-limiter is great and really speeds up the focusspeed to "instant".reviewed May 17th, 2019 (purchased for $450)
