A few hours ago Canon has announced the EF-M 11-22mm lens for the EOS M and a firmware update for the mirrorless camera and now the company has confirmed the changelog of the new software.
Canon has decided to make the first step in fixing the problems with the EOS M mirrorless camera, which consists of poor lens offer, by announcing the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens.
Canon announced a new EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens for the EOS M
The new Canon EF-M ultra wide-angle lens is the first of its kind to be packed in a retractable design. The actual lens will withdraw itself into the barrel at the touch of a switch, in order to save space when photographers are not using the camera.
Its 35mm equivalent stands at 18-35mm, but the Canon EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens also provides an impressive 3-stop image stabilizer. The integrated OIS technology will ensure that photos and videos remain sharp even when captured by people with shaky hands.
Canon EOS M update coming packed with improved autofocus system
During the lens announcement, Canon has revealed that the EOS M will receive a firmware update in the following weeks, in order to support the new product. However, the company has been long-rumored to provide a new software, that will improve the camera’s autofocus system and it seems like the company will finally deliver it.
According to a manufacturer’s statement, the new Canon EOS M update will bring several improvements, including a faster focusing system. This has been a major issue for most photographers, who have bemoaned the lack of a proper focus technology, but the Japanese corporation is fixing it at last.
Canon EOS M firmware update 2.0.0 to be released at the end of June
The EOS M will become more useful as the autofocus shutter speed will be greatly improved. Canon claims that the One Shot AF will be 2.3 times faster than before, as the AF Drive Control System has been completely overhauled.
Moreover, the Canon EOS M firmware update 2.0.0 or higher will become available for download to all users at the end of June. The company is also urging owners to install the update as soon as it gets released, as it will deliver a significantly improved performance.
Two more reasons to buy the Canon EOS M have appeared in a single day, as the mirrorless camera is currently available for purchase at Amazon for $479 bundled with the EF-M 22mm STM lens.
