The MOST important factor for Canon to gain ground in mirrorless world is EF adapter to mirrorless. If they can come up with adapter with decent AF speed, better than current ones on the market, I think that will give Sony, Fuji etc... good run.
Enlighten me on why they need an (EF adaptor to mirrorless) "adaptor to mirrorless with decent AF speed"?
In what way does the current EF-EOS M Mount Adaptor affect "AF speed"? And how would you improve it?
Or are you talking about some other adaptor?
For Canon shooters, standard EF and L lenses are as good as gold. These lenses can still be used with EOS-M system with an adaptor, however, AF speed becomes slower.
The adaptor doesn't make AF slower though does it?
It is the EOS M body that has slower AF. All the adaptor does is pass through the signals, doesn't it? It is just electrical contacts.
I can already put my EF and EF-S lenses on my EOS M. I don't need a new adaptor for that.
What I need is a new EOS M AF system that focuses them quicker.
I will repeat, in what way does the current EF-EOS M Mount Adaptor affect "AF speed"? (I am actually interested to know, as I am not aware of it. Not keen on having to buy another adaptor as well as a new M!)
We all know current EOS-M AF speed is not the best in mirrorless world, so, let's skip that for moment.
The EF-M lens adapter kit not only provides electrical contact, it also provide proper fitting between the EF and EF-S lenses to the eos-m.
I've tried 70-200 f2.8 IS II + adapter on eos-m Vs native 22mm. AF speed is not the same. Why? I can't tell you.
Neuro confirmed his adapter + L lenses is faster then native 22mm. Maybe, other members can give their feedbacks.
