While my initial Canon EOS M review was highly critical of the AF speed on this camera, Canon’s recent firmware update for the EOS M appears to have resolved my primary complaint. As a result, these look like some solid deals on this compact mirrorless shooter.
The Canon 24-70mm f/4L IS USM appears to have received another $100 price drop. It was originally selling for $1,499 until it received a $100 price drop earlier this month. Now, it is showing up for $1,299 here at B&H Photo.
