Can someone tell me if there is improvement with the adapter and the use of EFS lenses after the firmware update?

Someone just did.   ;)

  • 17-55/2.8 IS: good improvement - faster than the 24-105. If I refocus on the same spot, it confirms in like 0.2sec.

The 17-55/2.8 is the fastest in the list above so far.

Had a bit more of a play.

Not much of a step up if any in single zone af mode with stm 22, however, flexizone, particularly flexizone centred (press bin during live view) gives a grid of 9 very fast and very accurate zones (using shutter, yet to try in touch mode)

Will have a play with ef lens and adaptor over weekend, ill parent take priority before thrn I'm afraid.

Paul, are you only referring to focusing on static subjects?

Updated the firmware yesteday, and then took my 'M' to my daughter's soccer game. Used the EF adapter with the 70-200L f4 lens.  Single-point focus on a moving person was aquired in about half a second in most cases. That's better than before when it often would refuse to focus at all on a moving target.  In multi-point focus it also aquires focus just as quick, but your subject has to be fairly distinct or else the camera may focus on something random.  I had the 'continual focus' feature off the entire time.

 The only thing I have to compare it to is my old 30D, and the 'M' now focuses about as fast, albeit the 30D is a pretty old model.  One difference is that with the 30D you can pick a pretty small area to focus on, while the 'M' sometimes can't pick out small objects.

Updated last night, and while I had very little time to play around, at least with the 22mm lens the improvement is there, but subtle. Single-point mode seems about the same to me, but in multi-point mode there is a noticeable improvement. It is (still) not fast but it doesn't keep "hunting" back and forth like it used to. In other words, it feels more "decisive". Curious to see how it performs with the 18-55 and with the EF adapter...

Updated the firmware, feel much faster than the old firmware.  It is not as fast as 60D, but faster than S100.  Before the update, my S100 was much faster than M.  I am using 22mm lens only.

Did the upgrade yesterday night, unfortunately got a punch to the kidneys later that night in a Karate session which stoped me from any in depth testing. Still I will have to rewrite almost my complete "What works well with the M" comments as the update is a game changer.

Using a third party cheapo EF adapter and the 2.0.0.2 update the Tamron 17-270 VC PZD suddenly works like a charm. Gratulations to everyone who got a price reduced M as this update will make further reductions unlikely until a new M is released.

Agree.  I was looking for a wider prime lens for my 60D, but I found this M + 22mm on sale for $350.  Knowing a newer firmware is coming, I took the plunge, worst case is to return it for full refund.  Yes, M's auto focus was a joke with the old firmware, but with this new firmware, it is a very capable carry around camera along with the 22mm lens.  I am looking forward to the review of the new 11-22mm lens.  I don't think we will see a $350 price any more until the next M is coming.  It was cheaper than S110 and G15 8)

I wish Canon would include the digital zoom option in movie mode, as in the pre-release firmware.  Focus peaking is another nice feature that I wish they included in this new release.

Compare with the S90, the M is usually faster to focus.

Flexizone single has a problem focusing on featureless surfaces, like a white wall. Otherwise, fine.

Flexizone multi and tracking works fine. I'll probably be using that most of the time.

It still takes too long to write the image to card.
