Re: Potential EOS M Advantages vs G1 X

The EOS M shouldn't have the close-focusing limitations and inconveniences of G1 X.

The EOS M may have slowish AF, but it's probably faster than the G1 X.

The EOS M has a slightly larger sensor, so it may have slightly better IQ.

EF-M lenses are threaded. They don't require an adaptor like the G1 X.

The close-focussing implementation of the G1X is poorly done but, in practice, it actually isn't a big issue for me. Would be if I was doing photos of friends across a table!

People keep saying focus of G1X is slow. It's absolutely fine, generally quicker than a 55-250 lens on a 60D, for example. It's also super-reliable and I never miss a shot.

Bigger sensor should give a theoretical advantage, agreed. In practice it would be more lens-dependant.

That G1X adaptor made me very grumpy. It took three months to arrive after I ordered it (naughty Canon NZ, why say something is available when it's not?) and, when it did arrive, I was stunned to find my $49 had only bought an amazingly flimsy little piece of plastic which should have come free with the camera anyway!

A Land Rover, a camera ... I'm happy!
