Thanks to Daero Lee (YouTube) we have some videos showing how the upcoming firmware update for the Canon EOS M performs with the new EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens.If I got it right, a pre-production model of the 11-22mm was used. For the time being, the EF-M 11-22mm IS STM lens can be pre-ordered at Amazon Germany and at DigitalRev.
The firmware update for the EOS M seems to hold what it promises: a definitely faster auto-focus. The AF performance was the EOS M’s biggest issue, and that’s a pity, since the EOS M is a wonderful little camera with an amazing image quality. If the firmware update delivers a better AF (and it looks as if it will do), then the EOS M could have a big comeback, especially if you consider that the price is now much lower than when the EOS M was introduced.
The first video shows Touch AF performance.
