"different ball park" can be a elusive concept.

For instance, I am in the market for a second, small-sized, good-image-quality camera to complement my 1DMKIV and cater for the "camera" vector of a planned "light-travel" package.

The M(2) makes 99% sense, because of the ability to use the lenses I already have together with a couple of dedicated ones.

...But, suddenly, with this incredible Sony proposal, it starts to make sense selling half of my Canon lenses line-up, keeping only my preferred ones, add that to my already planned expense (M2 + 2 or 3 dedicated lenses) and go "double system".

But I don't think you and that scenario are the target market (yet) for the M system

Its for P&S upgraders and beginners... not FF users looking for a 2nd body.

This is where the M sits

Oh, and a 'Ladies Camera' in the Far East.

And if the M2 is just a refresh, that is where it will remain.
As yet, there is no solid evidence the M2 is anything other than a M mk2.

Of course, I will be happy to be proved otherwise.
