The EOS-M forum is relatively new with very few postings. If anyone has any new information, shooting tips and anything which can enhance the enjoyment of this nifty little camera, please post them here!

Default About max. fps

Do you know that the EF and EF-S lenses can shoot approx. 4.3 fps in comparison to the EF-M 18-55m STM at approx. 1.7 fps and 1.2 fps for the EF-M 22mm STM. (From the User's Manual)

Default Cheap EOS to EOS-M adapter that works

The Viltrox adapter I bought before has compatibly problem with the EF 50mm f/1.8. The AF on this lens does not work with this adapter. I got one made by Meike ($36 from Ebay) and this one works. The reason why it is so cheap because the adapter body is made with plastic and the mount is made with metal. Anyway, it works!

Default EOS-M and lagacy lenses with AF confirmed adapter

I tried a Nikon Micro Nikkor 55mm f/2.8 with an AF confirmed Nikon AI to EOS adapter on both the Viltrox and Meike adapter. Neither adapter will work as a message comes up saying it requires a firmware update. The camera freezes until I turn off the camera and remove the lens.
