I would like to hear how usm lenses track in video compared to the stm lenses. all the sample videos thus far have all been tested with stm lenses.

If this is the case I may not be opening my EOS-M box until I near the end of my return period. between this and the adapter becoming a non-returnable preorder item, I am beginning to question the future of the mirrorless line. I don't want to own a "limited edition" camera not knowing the stability of future support.
That's odd. How do you buy anything? Canon may discontinue any of their stuff tomorrow, in fact they do it all the time. I got a 5DmII that barely supports the new RT flash system, but is missing a number of features (i.e. groups). What about the GPS hotshoe accessory I got for the EOS-M? Nope. Canon refuses to make easy firmware upgrades in an effort to get me to dump the camera and buy a new one. Annoying. At any rate this hardly counts as indicating the line is dead.
Not only that, but there are probably going to be many returns on the camera. Many people are buying the camera for $299 just because of the price. They then may decide they don't need/want the camera and return it. If they buy a non-returnable accessory, they will be less likely to return the camera. Maybe this is their way of minimizing returns.Interestingly, it lists for $190 instead of the $150 it was a few days ago.I guess they are partially covering for their "losses" on their recent EOS-M price of $299 ... I bet a lot of Canon dslr users have bought the EOS-M at $299 and I bet they would all want to use their existing EF/EF-S lenses with their newly acquired EOS-M ... Best time for them to sell the adapter at a higher price ... Smart marketing... I am sure they will sell like hot cakes.
Makes sense. Amazon price is creeping up, too.
So the question is do I pick up a 7D or a 70D... I think I'm leaning still towards the 7D.
1. highlight alert (i.e. default/or auto enable like canon 20d, 30d, etc) when viewing image with histogram
Or better Zebras like real video monitors provide: with settable levels, preferable one in white for highlights, one inred for shadows, one in blue for a selected mid tone level - indicating where in the zone system a part of the picture is.
Add focus peaking for everything involving Lv and manual focus.
3. exposure hold (options to enable not to timeout as long as new exposure is choosen). i believe that with this option, i would probably moving faster than now in Av and Tv mode. for now, i have to use manual mode all the time since exposure would be canceled during the time that i am playing around with focus point(s)
