EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: EF-M 18-40 Pancake
« on: January 19, 2014, 07:08:39 PM »
What makes this a pancake rather than just another zoom? Either way. Canon seem to be taking a huge gamble with this EF-M format. One I won't be assisting with even though I own an EOS M. I'll just keep using the EF adapter.

EOS-M / Re: New Lens, New Firmware for EOS-M

Was just about to post the same message.  :D
I am far far more interested in the new firmware than the new lens.

EOS-M / Re: Lenses that do or don't do well with the M

Sigma 30 1.4 is fine
Canon 24-105 is fine
Sigma 10-20 f4 is fine.
Canon 100-400 is a dud. Just will not focus before the subject has moved away. Even if the subject is a tree. (well maybe that is an exaggeration)

EOS-M / Re: EOS M Autofocus Performance Won't Improve via Firmware [CR2]
« on: February 18, 2013, 05:20:39 PM »
I own an EOS-M and could never recommend it to anyone else because of the AF speed. Not because of the lenses.
When I purchased it I knew about the AF issue, I needed a second body to use my EF lenses on a holiday and took a punt that the problem would be fixed with firmware. I'm not moaning since it's a risk I knew before hand and still took.
The form factor and rest of the camera is great. A built in flash would be good also.

This is probably not the right place to defend the current model since we are talking about new stuff. But I still love the concept and am pleased with my purchase (except for the focusing speed). Obviously it is no replacement for my 7D but I can use my extensive collection of lenses and effectively carry 2 DSLR bodies with suitable L series lenses.
Thumbs up from me.
Hope the new model has wifi/gps/built in flash.

Had previously heard the rumors of an M2 so it's not so much of a shock. I can accept that my EOS-M doesn't have a built in flash or EVF since it is what I bought.

What I have a problem accepting is the crap AF speed and the lack of a firmware update to address it. If it turns out to be a hardware problem and something that requires a new model to fix I'll be very very very annoyed with Canon.  (Unless they do me some kind of unheard of deal to upgrade)
