Another mirrorless gains value through firmware updates, won’t be re-reviewed

8 Aug

After the Pentax K-01’s successful stock clearance following a price adjustment and firmware updates dramatically improving autofocus capabilities, Canon has pulled off the same trick with its EOS M:

Like the Pentax K-01 before it, it is unlikely that the camera will be officially re-reviewed by camera review sites, so we won’t know how much faster it has become – same as the Pentax K-01, about which I’ve written before. Those considering the EOS M may wish to acquaint themselves with an unacknowledged issue affecting some shipments.

By the way, the K-01 was relaunched in Japan in a very fetching blue variant (reported as powder blue or sky blue). Still a very cute camera with class-leading image quality:
