Hopefully this also acts as a useful form of "competition" to Canon by "encouraging" Canon to include more useful features in the stock firmware.

This camera has by far the WORST autofocus i have ever seen. It must take like 4-8 seconds to focus on something.

Shameful Canon, just shameful. And ergonomic it is not, with the hand grooves not as well placed like the g series. I was looking forward to a nice lil camera but i was appalled. The AF alone makes this pure garbage.

Buyer beware.
Be the best you, screw everything else.

Have you used an EOS 650? - try putting an 85mm f/1.2L USM II on an EOS 650!

It would be really funny if the ML team manages to improve the speed of the camera's auto-focus before Canon does.

Turn on the focus peaking, and you can probably manual focus faster.

Try using touch-AF.  It's a lot easier and faster than AF through button.  I tried it and I was surprised that it works.
