Well said and I agree. I've had the DSLRs (Three times!) and I don't want to go back to that size. I want something small that is capable of so much more than my iPhone.

I find myself reaching more often for my iPod (image quality isn't everything) because I CAN DO MORE and is fun!

If Canon is wondering why the decline in sales, that is one!

I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up with a Samsung Android Mirrorless or a Sony A6000 that support Apps, even though lenses are more expensive.

I don't need stupid 'Art filters' or Social media features. But I miss things like Panorama Assist of older Canon cameras. With the M I can't even save a 'buffer image' to RAW like my 10 year old Canon Pro1 does, etc, etc.

I like the M but is so crippled in features....

I think there are many millions of consumers who don't merely want social media features, they actually cannot understand what to do with a camera that lacks them.

Facebook has over 1 billion users. Of those, perhaps 100 million people snap photos and upload them to Facebook. And many do this using their smartphone camera. So a camera that doesn't link with the smartphone to upload photos to social media is pretty backwards for them.

I understand that's not everybody's cup of tea, but it is basically a matter of a wifi chip and some good software.
