Good news for the few among you daring enough to buy into Canon's half-baked mirrorless proposal. News from Canon Rumors:
"We’re told new firmware for the EOS M will be coming “soon”. Possibly in the next two weeks. The firmware will address various things in the camera, the biggest being improving AF performance. Do not expect miracles about how much it can be improved, but the camera should “hunt a lot less” in lower contrast situations. We’ll also see an improvement in AF tracking."
Canon may slowly lose its edge, market share, brand luster etc, but there's one thing that hasn't changed, and is highly characteristic of the company: it doesn't leak. At least, not uncontrollably, as opposed to all of its major rivals who lately seem to have lost the ball. We've got raw files from Nikon's latest and 'bestest' circulating in the wild, all the while there's a supposed NDA in place to disallow just that, we found out almost everything about Olympus E-M5 before it was officially announced, and so on. . . . read more
P.S The new, Serious and more business conscious Ken Rockwell appears to have changed the wording, the context, heck, everything in his review of this camera. It is no longer "less responsive than his kids toys", and not worse of all Nikon DSLRs ever made. It (the Canon EOS 5D Mark II) is now better than any Nikon at almost everything, and overall, one of the best cameras ever made. Go figure. Quote of his old review, and our comment at the bottom of this post. . . . read more
As an EOS user for the past 10 years, this celebration reminds me of both good and bad moments. The most recent ones are maybe the joy when i review my 5D Mark II files, and the gaping hole the ever increasing Canon lens prices leave in my wallet.
Happy birthday EOS! . . . read more
