|Canon EOS-M with EF 22mm f/2 STM lens|
As I have reported earlier, Canon finally announced they will be releasing a new Firmware to address the slow AF speed of the EOS-M, the Achilles' heel of this camera. You can read my earlier post on this topic to see where the entire EOS-M line is heading.
Autofocus Speed Boost
Further enhancing the performance and utility of the EOS M, Canon also announces today a firmware upgrade that boosts the AF shutter speed, making One Shot AF up to 2.3x faster. The new firmware delivers improved performance as a result of a reworked AF Drive Control System and Canon encourages all existing users of the EOS M to download the new Firmware Version 2.0 once it becomes available at the end of June 2013.
