Best Budget Landscape Lens for Canon EF-M Mirrorless Cameras

If you’re looking for the best budget landscape lens for Canon APS-C mirrorless cameras with EF-M mount (EOS M6 Mark II, EOS M5, EOS M50, EOS M200 etc.), you’re at the right spot. Here’s our favorite option:

Best Choice – Rokinon (Samyang) 12mm f/2

Manual focus lenses, such as this Rokinon 12mm f/2, are quite easy to use with EOS M mirrorless cameras and shouldn’t scare you away just because you can’t rely on autofocus. Like we said, focusing manually is very easy on these cameras and that’s especially true when it comes to landscape photography where you’re using a really wide-angle lens (this is a 19.2mm equivalent lens on EOS M cameras) and are typically stopped down to f/5.6 or f/8.

Rokinon 12mm is not only useful for daytime landscape photography, but it’s also a pretty good choice for low-light shooting and astrophotography, thanks to that f/2 maximum aperture. The lens is pretty sharp considering its compact size, quite affordable and all of this makes it the best budget landscape lens for Canon EOS M cameras, in our opinion.
