Compatible with the full line of Canon EF and EF-S lenses (optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS M is required).
The EOS M Digital Camera features a new style lens mount, called EF-M. Besides the dedicated EF-M lenses, the camera is compatible with the entire family of Canon EF and EF-S lenses by attaching the optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS M. When the adapter is used, the image quality of the lens is preserved, with no light loss or change to image stabilization.
From fisheye to telephoto and everywhere in between, Canon offers the most comprehensive lens collection on the planet, with the finest optics and most advanced technologies for whatever application is at hand.
When shooting video with one of Canon’s new STM lenses, the camera’s Movie Servo AF feature takes advantage of the lens’ stepping motor for smooth and quiet continuous AF.
White screen of death
Have owned this camera for less than 2 weeks. I shot more than 300 photos with it and LOVED the IQ and was not bothered by the slow auto focus. HOWEVER, the camera freezes up -- I get a white screen, the shutter won't fire, the menu button doesn't work. This has happened 3 times in less than two weeks; the first 2 times I removed the battery and waited a bit, reinserted the battery and all was OK. 4 hours ago this happened again and the 'normal' fix is no longer working. VERY DISAPPOINTED. I loved the IQ and the size and build quality of the eos m. I was looking forward to using this small but great IQ camera when backpacking and hoped to be able to carry it pretty much everywhere I go; I REALLY wanted to like this camera, but my experience has been horrible.

I bought two of these, one with the 22mm and the other with the 18-55mm. They give great photo quality and are very sturdily built. I am hoping for more lenses and even more great performance with further firmware updates!

After the firmware upgrade AF is somewhat faster but still very slow. Battery life is not so good. Has anyone tried to use the firmware upgrade from the Canon 7d/t4i on this? Obviously the Digic 5 processor is fast enough, so what is the problem with slow AF? Still not happy with this camera...

Got mine about a week ago with the 22mm f2 I love it focus isn't lightning fast but I'm not trying to shoot sports with it either, I have a 5D Mark III for that!!!! Great camera, great quality highly recommend it..... I could only imagine this camera did have a faster AF and higher frame rate!!!!
