EOS-M / Re: EOS M Firmware Coming Soon

You should look into Magic Lantern.  It is only in Alpha for the M, but this will give you time lapse as well as some great video tools.

I second this.  It seems remarkably stable.  I have some older, manual lenses, when used with focus peaking really bring a lot of fun to this camera.  The only nit pick with the current ML release is the overlay sits atop the Canon menus, but it sounds like they have a fix in the works.

I'm not expecting a "new camera" with a firmware update, but an improvement will be nice, though I dont' have a big beef with the AF performance outside of a handful of times.

I agree with many that the tap to focus option is faster than the half-pressed shutter release.

The overlay issue has been fixed, but I don't think they have released a new download.

have they got the intervalometer features working?

Yes.

all they have to do is make the AF using the shutter button the same as using the touch to shoot and it will be great. touch to shoot af speed is really quite acceptable and snappy its only using the button that it's a laggy mofo

Now I'm hoping they add in at least a basic intervalometer function since there is no way of connecting one :(
it would be a great little time lapse camera with this function

Please don't compare EOS M with X100 with regards to AF performance.  Fuji has a smaller sensor thus focusing is a little bit better.  Focus is much more forgiving for smaller sensors.

Focus is more forgiving for smaller sensors, but the X100 has a sensor which is as big (if not larger) than the M.
