The other question is will this update trickle down (up?) to the Rebels and/or other bodies? If the EOS M AF was similar to the T4i Live View AF previously, then it seems that they could also make live view much more usable on the other recent bodies by implementing whatever improvements are included here.

I've read of issues using the 2x III TC with the EOS M/EF Adapter, but I'm having trouble finding details - can someone point me to a link with details? Does it not AF at all, only with certain lenses, or have other issues?


I've been using the EOS-M with the 70-200 F4 with the 1.4 II TC and it focuses fine.

Has anyone used a f/1.8 50mm, f/1.8 85mm or a f/2.0 100mm on their EOS-M, using the EF-EOS M lens adapter?? Is the auto-focus campareable to the EF-M f/2.0 22mm lens when using the adapted lens?

TIA


I did a wee test with my M with the EF-m adapator and 100mm f2.0, along the end of an airport runway as a plane approaches.  It will AF, and it will servo.

Set to 4fps playback, which roughly matches the shooting rate.

Too little, too late imo


Apparently, not too late for the USA market. http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2013/06/18/reviewed-mirrorless-cameras/2431125/:

"The mirrorless segment is gaining huge ground in Japan, where it makes up about 10% of the camera market, according to the Camera & Imaging Products Association. Of the 1.8 million cameras shipped in the Americas (not just the USA) in April, a measly 38,843 of them were mirrorless — 2% of the total."

That explains Canon's apathy. ;)

Is this a closed beta test or is the firmware leaked somewhere?

This is about as fast as the SL1 I played with at Sam's Club the other week.

Stunning improvement.

Looks good!! Much better than I'd expect for tracking a fast moving object. Thanks for posting.

To follow up on my previous post, I've now tested the M with my 2x III TC + 70-200 2.8 II and haven't encountered any issues.

I've tested the 50 1.8 and unfortunately it is slower...significantly so. Haven't tried the other two lenses though...

I had this problem with my EOS lenses, I then decided to actually read the Instruction Manual, check out page 131.   When set up to FlexiZone Single, auto focus was much better with my EOS lenses.   I like this camera, it replaced my G9 and is an overall big improvement.
