Touch screen focus on the next 5 series?
Jan 29, 2013

I asked santa for an EOS M for Christmas, and it's impressive in some significant ways.  Perhaps most impressive is the touch point focus, where you just touch the screen where you want the cam to focus, and it snaps the pic.  Being spoiled by my 5Diii, I hate the slight shutter lag, but the touch focus shooting seems like a game changer.  I imagine it on my 5Diii in a model shoot with no shutter lag, and I WANT it.  Much faster and more precise that toggling my focal point with joystick.  No issues changing focal point when I switch from landscape to portrait.  Seems like it could easily be set up to stay where you touched the screen last, while you use the shutter button, till you want to change it again on screen.
