UPDATE: It turned out there are more videos (click here) testing the EOS M auto-focus with the upcoming firmware 2.0.2. The AF is tested both in the FlexiZone Multi and FlexiZone Single settings. 12 videos, I posted 6. Thanks to reader spy-spy-spy for this.

Thanks to the reader who sent me the links, greatly appreciated!

Have a look at the videos (by YouTube user Daero Lee) below to see what the upcoming firmware update (ver. 2.0.2) for the Canon EOS M is going to deliver :) The EF-M 18-55mm IS STM is tested with the old and new firmware, as is the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM. And – YES! Helluva! – the Auto-Focus is much faster than with the current firmware. Flexizone-Multi AF was used for the tests. You can see that AF using firmware 2.0.2 is a bit faster in the 18-55mm.

Let’s start with the firmware 1.0.6 (first video) vs 2.0.2 (second video) comparison using the EF-M 18-55mm at 18mm:
