From Canon New Zealand:
 
Firmware Upgrade Boosts AF Speed by up to 2.3x
 
Further enhancing the performance and utility of the EOS M, Canon also announces today [June 6] a firmware upgrade that boosts the AF shutter speed, making One Shot AF up to 2.3x faster*. The new firmware delivers improved performance as a result of a reworked AF Drive Control System and Canon encourages all existing users of the EOS M to download the new firmware version 2 once it becomes available at the end of June 2013**.
 
"The EOS M is designed for people who want to spontaneously capture the great moments in life, in the highest quality, without missing a beat." says Robert de Jeu, Senior Product Manager – Technical Imaging Specialist, Consumer Imaging at Canon New Zealand. "With this firmware upgrade, Canon has responded to the feedback from the community by providing them with an increase in AF speed, enabling users to capture high-quality images quickly. What’s more, with the introduction of the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens, they are able to get even more of the fun around them into the frame."
 
Footnotes
 
* When using FlexiZone Multi AF and the EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens. Speed improvement is dependent upon shooting conditions and lens
** The firmware upgrade also corrects a rare phenomenon that causes the EOS M controls to become unresponsive when the new EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens is used

Canon EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens
From Canon UK:
 
United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland 6 June 2013 – Canon today expands its range of EF-M lenses with the introduction of the new EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM. Designed for Canon’s Compact System Camera, the EOS M, this is Canon’s first ultra wide-angle EF lens to feature an Optical Image Stabilizer. Offering a versatile wide-angle zoom range, first-class optical performance, and a new retractable design, the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM is the perfect addition for EOS M users who wish to capture their passion for landscapes and architecture.
 
Shoot the city, shoot the world
Designed to expand the range of creative possibilities and shooting subjects, the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM has an 11-22mm focal range which provides an incredibly wide field of view. This allows users to capture the environment around them whilst remaining close to the subject – ideal for adding drama and atmosphere to each shot.
 
Class-leading optics deliver incredible results
Engineered using the latest optical technologies, the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM enables users to capture images with incredible levels of detail and quality. Manufactured using Canon’s professional quality standards, the lens uses Super Spectra Coatings designed to minimise ghosting and flare, providing beautiful results with every shot. Images are crisp and clear thanks to Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer, which works to keep image blur to a minimum by correcting camera shake. A 3-stop shutter speed advantage ensures high quality stills, even when light levels start to fade.
 
Shooting smooth Full HD movies is easy using the advanced Dynamic IS mode which combats more exaggerated forms of camera shake that occur when shooting video on the move. Canon’s near-silent STM technology also ensures focus noise is supressed during movie capture, so the audience can enjoy crystal clear sound to match the visual quality of the footage captured.
 
Designed for performance and style
Incredibly compact and lightweight, the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM has been designed to fit easily into the smallest of spaces so it can be carried everywhere. A new retractable lens design – a first for the EF lens range – locked in place by a switch, allows users to retract the lens back into the barrel when not in use. This keeps the body slim and compact, reducing the lens length by 13mm. An integrated full time manual focus ring also provides the freedom to make precise adjustments to focus as needed.
 
Designed to complement the EOS M’s chic styling, the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM features a graphite silver, metal exterior, while the knurled focus and zoom rings are comfortable in the hand and provide easy operation.
 
EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM – key features:

  • Ultra-wide 11-22mm EF-M zoom lens
  • Compact, retractable lens design
  • Smooth, quiet STM focusing in movies
  • Dynamic IS for steady movies
  • 3-stop optical Image Stabilizer
  • High image quality
  • 0.15m minimum focusing distance
  • Manual focus ring

From DxO:
 
Support for the Canon EOS Rebel SL1, the Sony SLT-A58, and the Ricoh GR
 
June 5, 2013 – DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO Optics Pro v8.2, the new version of its image processing software of reference for all demanding photographers, which was recently awarded the coveted 2013 TIPA Prize in the category of Best Photo Software. This update for Mac and Windows allows DxO Optics Pro 8 to support the Canon EOS Rebel SL1, the Sony SLT-A58, and the Ricoh GR, as well as to incorporate all of the new features of DxO FilmPack 4 as a plugin.
 
DxO Optics Pro v8.2 is able to combine the power of its corrections with the creativity of all the new tools in DxO FilmPack 4 (Expert Edition) in an entirely non-destructive workflow that handles RAW images as well as JPEG.
 
With DxO FilmPack 4, photographers can apply to their digital photos all the characteristic color, contrast, and grain of analog films that made photographic history, along with many original looks, filters, tonings, and visual effects — all of which can be infinitely combined and customized.
 
The new tools in DxO FilmPack 4 (Expert Edition) in plugin mode include a new range of effects that can give RAW and JPEG images an even more personal signature. In particular, such new effects as texture, light leaks, and special frames take users even further into the world of analog film photography.
 
Using DxO FilmPack 4 as a plugin for DxO Optics Pro 8 requires the purchase of a DxO FilmPack 4 license.
 
New DxO Optics Modules
 
DxO Optics Pro v8.2 benefits from the continuous development of DxO Optics Modules. 439 new camera/lens combinations now reside in the library, providing support for additional Canon, Carl Zeiss, Konica, Nikkor, Panasonic, Olympus, Sigma, Sony, Tamron, and Tokina lenses for Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Ricoh, and Sony cameras.
 
DxO Optics Modules contain tens of thousands of data points about the intrinsic characteristics and flaws of each camera and lens. This database allows DxO Optics Pro to automatically correct all the optical flaws in RAW and JPEG images – distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, lens softness – with an unrivaled level of quality.
 
Availability and prices
 
The Standard and Elite editions of DxO Optics Pro v8.2 for Mac and Windows are available at authorized photo resellers at a special discount through June 30, 2013:

  • DxO Optics Pro 8 Standard Edition: $99 instead of $169
  • DxO Optics Pro 8 Elite Edition: $199 instead of $299

This upgrade is free for all owners of DxO Optics Pro 8, as well as for photographers who purchased a DxO Optics Pro 7 license on or after September 1, 2012. Other users can go through their customer account to benefit from a special discount on their upgrade through June 30, 2013.
