Use the AF illuminator in the EOS M Body

Hi everyone,

I'm trying using AF assist beam from a speed light 430 EX II mounted on the EOS M, but even with all the related option of the beam on ON positiion there is no beam. This happens with 3 EF-M lenses and other L lenses. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

As already noted, it doesn't work

But you can use the AF illuminator built into the EOS M body of course. That works.
