USM vs STM vs Nano USM Canon Lenses - Timeline

Let’s take a look at the Major difference between these three lens AF tech and their arrival timeline. And how and when Canon Implemented them in their Lens AF system.

1. 1987 – The Birth of Canon USM Motors

With the introduction of the EF lens mount in 1987, the fully electronic connectors allowed the autofocus motor to be moved from the camera body to the lens itself, giving the possibility that each AF motor could be tailored to suit the lens it was fitted into, thereby providing faster autofocus.

Although the decision to move the AF motor into the lens had been made, there was still a need to create a motor that could work well and satisfy the aims of fast, smooth and quiet autofocus. The result was the EF300mm f/2.8L USM lens launched at the start of the EOS system in 1987. It featured a ring-type Ultra Sonic Motor (USM) motor that was both fast and near-silent.

Canon 300D introduced back on 2003 alongside with EF-S Lines of lenses

2. 1990 – Development of Micro I / II USM Motors for APS-C / EF-S Lenses

In 1990, new manufacturing techniques made it possible to reduce the cost of manufacture and ring-type USM motors found their way into Canon lenses at a consumer price level. Canon introduced the Canon EF-S line of lenses in 2003 alongside the 300D.

2012 – Canon First Hybrid Sensor-based DSLR introduced

Canon T7i / Canon 650D was Canon’s first DSLR with 24 MP First Generation of Hybrid CMOS AF Sensor. But, USM AF motor’s noise was loud and easily get recorded by Camera internal microphones. To Fix the Lens AF noise issue Canon engineers developed stepping drive motor.

3. 2012 – STM – Noise Less Stepping AF Motors

In June 2012 Canon introduced a new lens motor design to address the issue of lens noise when shooting movies with an EOS DSLR camera. This new lens technology is called STM or Stepping Motor.

Two types of STM Motors

  1.  Gear-type (Compact  / affordable used in Canon 50mm F1.8 STM, Canon 18-55 mm IS STM)
  2. Lead screws (also known as power screws) (Large, Fast and silent used in Canon EF 24-105mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM)

4. 2016 – Introduction of Nano USM Motors

In 2016 Canon introduced yet another new lens technology – Nano USM. This offers further improvement in silent lens operation and has been developed to overcome the difference in needs between video and stills shooting, so it offers improvements for both media types.

Future Professional Lenses including RF Mount Mirrorless Lenses will carry Nano-USM Motors for fast and quick AF operation.

Canon Stopped Development of DSLR Lenses

I am really SHOCKED to hear that, Canon representative said in an interview that they have stopped the research and development of Canon new EF or EF-S Lenses. No more new DSLR lenses in the near future until and unless we get we have market demand. [Yes you do have, but why such bad decisions in favor of mirrorless system ?] . Take a look at what they have said in an interview

Canon Europe pro product marketing senior manager, Richard Shepherd, said that while Canon will continue to support EF lenses, the plan is to focus on RF lenses.

‘As you know, last year we launched the RF mount and EOS R system […] To date we’ve launched ten critically acclaimed lenses, and as it’s a new system we plan to continue this, launching more RF lenses while still fully supporting the EF lens system. And of course, should the market demand it, we are ready to create new EF lenses. But for now, our focus is on RF.’

It’s a clear hint that they are running on the same DSLR cannibalization policy they have opted back on 2018.  But wait, I also do own a bunch of Canon EF Lenses and can you believe they have just silently killed Canon’s EF mount was released 33 years ago.

But why Canon 1DX Mark III and 90D if they are on DSLR cannibalization ?

They need a buffer time to create more options in front of their new and existing user base. There are a lot of people who are still not ready to commit in the new Mirrorless system. And do they also have logical reasoning which includes a very limited ECO system of RF mount and absence of professional body.

So, at the end Canon don’t want to lose their DSLR user base to a different brand due to absence of proper options. These new DSLR camera are strategic update to retain the DSLR user-base for 3-4 years, so they can bring more options [Mirrorless cameras] in front of DSLR in the next few years.

We will update you soon as we get any new information.
