So I'm betting that in less than 2 years Canon will have squished Oly in mirrorless just as they did in DSLRs. The more so because they'll likely will have released some nice lenses, and at least one enthusiast body.

and you are assuming that why? Canon is super slow to release new lenses. They release very few prime lenses and have made only a few lenses for the EFS mount which has been around for years.

I'm a canon guy who can tell you waiting for a NEW canon lens is a fools game.

Canon had something going about 5 years ago, but haven't done much since.

M43 is innovative, Nikon and Sony have made impressive strides, Samsung is always cooking up something, but Canon has been resting too long.

Canon seems to be able to introduce about 3 new lenses a year, and then a least one of those with be 10 months late. And another will just be a version II of an existing lens.

Don't look for lenses to save the EOS-M.


Call me crazy. I happen to like photos of cats.
