I think Canon mirrorless will be a great system!
Jul 23, 2012

As much flak as Canon has been getting, I think the new mirrorless will be a great system vis-a-vis Sony, Nikon, etc. From a long-term view, it seems like a promising system that can compete with m43 system.

1. They kept the APS-C Sensor unlike Nikon.

2. Full Compatibility with entire lens line-up. (I know the long zooms don't make sense for this camera, but if you invested in Canon glass, you can leverage their full capability in the new).

3. Full compatibility with flashes, granted you won't mount 600EX or even 430EX II on this Camera, but you don't need to, you can fire them wireless.
4. Clear growth path from Mirrorless -> APS-C DSLR -> FF

Granted if I had to choose one TODAY, I will choose some m43 camera based on available bodies. But it can change once Canon introduces more bodies in the lineup.

The biggest gripes such as high price and lack Camera controls/Viewfinder can be solved by just waiting some more time for better camera/price.

What do you think?
