    Hi,

    I just bought an EOS M6 Mark 2 - the autofocus when taking pictures is near-instant but on video's it takes 10x longer.

    What's causing this and can I change it?

    The lens is a Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM (link here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07H4F65YR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1).



    I literally just bought it for 4k video so this really needs to speed up! I don't understand why the autofocus on video goes so slow, I want it to be as fast as the picture mode!


    Thanks

    I would at a guess say 4K is a very large file format, so this could be the issue.
    I would suggest you look up you tube as this may give you a more in depth look .
    My third suggestion would be to approach Johnsey as he is more up to date with the modern cameras and their issues.

    What I found in a very brief target look is that there are recent firmware updates and it does list in the march one something about focus issues.
