Manual focus in AI Servo is retained with the EFs-24 when my 7D is set to back button focus (even after metering stops). Handy sometimes when you want to tweak the focus a little.

Thanks for the video Mike, nice piece of of info! -Brian

I have three STM lenses, 40mm f/2.8, 18-135mm STM, 10-18mm STM. I also use them on my 20D and 50D with great results. On my 700D and EOS M with video and stills they work fine.

Wow, didn't realize that; never had an STM lens.

Off topic, but does anyone know how well STM lenses work on adapters? Obviously a non-powered adapter will not allow focusing.
I assume the EOS-M with Canon EF adapter will still allow normal operation? Does manual focus work? Do you have to hold down a button (like DGStinner mentioned with the T3) to enable it?
What about other combos? For example I use Canon EF lenses on a Sony A7 with Metabones adapter; auto-focus works (slowly) and IS works, so I know power is sent to the lens; would I be able to manually focus an STM lens? The Metabones description doesn't seem to mention STM anywhere.

I think I'll just stick with USM lenses...

My three STM lenses work well on my EOS M with the Canon adapter. Focusing isn't as fast as with my DSLRs, but for static subjects fast enough and accurate.
