Agreed.  This whole topic suggests that the only thing keeping the M from being competitive with the alternatives is AF speed.

Has anyone used a f/1.8 50mm, f/1.8 85mm or a f/2.0 100mm on their EOS-M, using the EF-EOS M lens adapter?? Is the auto-focus campareable to the EF-M f/2.0 22mm lens when using the adapted lens?

TIA

I've tested the 50 1.8 and unfortunately it is slower...significantly so. Haven't tried the other two lenses though...

Has anyone come across videos showing the AF speed (with the new firmware) when using the EF adapter?

Key question for me.  If they improve the AF, I will take a second look

I've used the 100mm f2.0 with ef-m, in single zone mode it works very well, can't wait for fw2

Thanks for the quick reply. Guess I'll buy an EOS-M  :) The rumored 2.02 will make these lenses very useable  :)

I want a 2nd body for my daughter, and I think this would be a good option, but I object to having to pay extra for the EF adapter... I also object to allowing my daughter to take my L lenses outside of the house. 
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

I agree.  I don't know how they're going to turn it into an SL1 with firmware.

The other question is will this update trickle down (up?) to the Rebels and/or other bodies? If the EOS M AF was similar to the T4i Live View AF previously, then it seems that they could also make live view much more usable on the other recent bodies by implementing whatever improvements are included here.

I've read of issues using the 2x III TC with the EOS M/EF Adapter, but I'm having trouble finding details - can someone point me to a link with details? Does it not AF at all, only with certain lenses, or have other issues?

Then don't buy the adapter and just buy the EF-M compatible lenses only.  I heard there's a EF-M version of the 55-250 coming.  Together with 18-55 and 22mm, this is already a good set of lenses.  Don't forget to buy her the cute 90EX.  :)
