Thom Hogan: Canon "shot itself in the chest"
9 months ago

He really destroyed Canon this time for refusing to sell or service in the U.S. the single additional lens it finally announced nearly a year after the EOS M, and he called out the EOS M for not in fact being a system camera at all. What Canon has done here is pretty indefensible; they sold a camera under the premise that those who bought it would later be able to add future lenses and other accessories to create a legitimate photography system, and now they're reneging on that implied promise.

This is exactly the same thing that Canon fanatics love to trash Olympus for doing with 4/3, yet if you compare the 4/3 system to EOS M it flat out blows it away considering how many cameras, lenses, and accessories there are, and now Canon looks to be basically giving up on the system except in Japan. A total bush league move that ought to really tick off anyone who has invested in any Canon gear. The most hilarious part of Canon's epic fail of a mirrorless system is that no less than Ken Rockwell once dared to proclaim the EOS M as the world's first professional mirrorless system camera. The crow is on the plate and about to be served, Kenny!
