SL1 is not selling well either

The Canon SL1/100D is 10% narrower, 3% shorter, (10% thicker), and weighs 18% less than an Olympus OM-D EM-1 mirrorless camera.

Just buy an SL1, and pretend that it is a mirrorless camera. If memory serves, the SL1 uses the same sensor as the EOS M2, the latter not being available in North American and Europe. As an added bonus, SL1 has superior AF speed and a viewfinder.

The SL1 is not selling well either outside of Asia.

"Americans also seem to prefer bigger cameras. Sales for the Rebel SL1 have not been as great as we expected in America, for example. We've received some complaints about it being too small. But in Japan and Asia we don't see any complaints about that."
