Re: EOS M fast focus

You are not the first to claim this, but my controlled tests suggest otherwise.

I have tried this with both the 22mm pancake, as well as with the EF adapter + 24-105L. Mounted the camera on a tripod, defocused completely, then focus (and capture!) by either pressing and holding the shutter button, or touching the screen.

Completely as expected, after doing this test several times, there is no noticable difference in focus speed between the shutter button and the touch screen. It takes slightly over a second to focus in each test.

I would love for this to be true (as well as other claims regarding the focus not being as slow as some suggest), and to be able to replicate this behavior, but I'm not convinced ...
