    Yes. I made a comment in a thread about the rumored 30mm macro from Olympus, saying that they should make it like this. Making macro easier for people. I thought Canon was quite innovative here.

    I watched the video, I don't need any kids or a girlfriend, so the lens wouldn't work for me.

    I thought the video was rather odd as well.

    I thought it was charming, and I think it did a good job focusing on the intended audience for this lens, and some of the cool features. I'm actually quite impressed. It's a good size for a normal lens on the EOS M-3, it can be used down to 1:2 and at infinity, and the ring lights are very versatile, one being able to switch to using one or both sides, and having variable intensity so you balance with ambient light. I kinda wished we had one for M43. :)

    I like the lens and the usage they showed but overall I found the video somewhat odd. This was a quick impression.
