I finally figured out how to manually focus my EF-M lens. Turns out you have to keep half pressing the shutter button, the drive by wire is actually much nicer than other brand ones.

You can also choose in the menu, AF or MF or AF+MF.

Yeah I had it on AF+MF but I just couldnt figure it out from there. It's probably in the manual but I've never read it.

I couldn't figure that one out either. For the tree & stars photo I posted above, I just left it on MF.

Here is a photo the EOS M with 40mm pancake. Fun little setup. This little camera rocks but it is very true what they say about the AF and moving subjects. Still VERY happy with it.

If anyone has tips about making focus fast, please share them here. I'm using firmware 2.02.

If LCD shutter is enabled it seems it AF little fast. I am still old school so using LCD for AF selection and using shutter to click.

With the 22mm on a tree farm in PA. They just picked out our trees for this year and were making their way back to the Jeep. This was with the "miniature" setting - fun effect :)

Nothing really to do, it's nothing like a olympus in terms of speed.

Single point AF, LCD review off and servo off are your best bets.

I don't think Canon is going to update the firmware again like Fuji keeps doing for their original X100.

It would be awesome but knowing Canon they'll just save it for a mark 2 or their next mirrorless model.

Ok so I am looking at grabbing an extra battery or two for the EOS-M.. With the Canon battery being so expensive, is anyone using any aftermarket batteries like the Big Mike's or Wasabi offered on Amazon?

I picked up an Opteka 2000mAH for $12.95 - it has worked better (longer) than the OEM battery.

Yeah, I got a couple of Wasabi batteries several months ago. No problems out of them and the M.

I've been using the ones Big Mike sells, they're just generic Chinese versions. Have worked just as good as the OEM one, but they last way longer(1150mAh vs the stock one which is like 750 I think).

Although I'd buy them from ebay since they're MUCH cheaper on there:

On average shoots I use about 1.5 batteries. Once I had to use all 3, but that was for a 6 hour shoot.
