I don't know about the EOS-M AF speed, but I do know the 7d, 5d3, and the E-M5, and the E-M5 will easily match the 7d and 5d3 in AF speed
with comparable glass...//...
Hmmm, well, with static subjects maybe.
But AF being fast with static subjects to me, is meaningless.
I mean, I can manually focus for a few seconds on a static subject, and it will still be a static subject...so who cares.
But try as I might, I can't anyone on the internet who has stated that the AF system of the E-M5 can cope with moving subjects as well as a 7D or 5D3.
Which is all that counts, really.
The E-M5 has a touch screen. It is not entirely obvious how to use though, so I can understand you not realizing this if this was your first time using one.
That I did not know. Thanks for pointing out my error.
Back to the subject at hand though....
The main reason I got the E-M5 [over the EOS-M] is that I wanted to cut way back on the weight and size of my gear...//...
I think that's the thinking of most people.
Well, thanks for your input Mike.
Though don't forget, I'm only doing the EOS-M mini-review for fun, and because it seems there's a delay in the USA.
I've NO INTENTION of buying this Mark 1 version.
But similarly, I've no intention of buying into a whole new system away from Canon, as I want to use my EF/EF-S lenses from time to time on a new camera body, which will hopefully be an EOS-M Mk2, asap!
