    Hi fellow Canon Eos M users,

    I have a question for you. I just bought a Canon Eos M.
    I'm willing to fit other lenses - I'm thinking about a zoom.
    My question is which lens do you recommend that can AF at a reasonable speed? even adapted ones.
    I was thinking about the 18-135 is usm but then read that ther is the new STM version that is faster on the Eos M, is this true.
    I can also think about the Tamron 18-200 for Eos M that has some good reviews.
    My main shots with this little piece of kit will be mainly static objects and travel photography.

    Nothing focuses quickly on the M.Which M lens do you have? Nothing will be faster than the 18-55 M-mount. So, if you already have that lens, don't expect anything quicker.

    I used an 85/1.8 on the M, which was a nice telephoto length, gorgeous output and OK focusing.
