Sam Carriere: I am trying really hard to figure out why anyone would even consider this camera, given the really strong field. This is a bit less than so-so, but then I always think that when a camera is offered in red, it's not really targeting serious photographers anyway. This is for snapshooters with lots of money who don't follow reviews.

So where are those reviews you are talking about? Can you also link a portfolio of yours just to understand if you don't fit as well in the snapshotters demographic area?

I see a lot of chatchat here, but looking at the galleries no one criticizing this camera really needs more than a P&S...

Nice comment, to which reviews are you referring to? I did not see any around yet. And judging a camera from body color, wow, that-s an argument! Thanks for that, buying black only cameras will for sure make my photos better, thanks. Judge photographers from their photos not their gear please.

RichardBlaney: I went through all the comments and everyone is just talking about missing viewfinder, ibis or price or whatever, no one talks about lenses and image quality. If sensor is up to expectation this camera will be at least on par with N5 and N7, so, if this 22mm pancake is decent will make a better combo simply because no one realizes that Sony 16mm pancake simply sucks! So you can have a wonderful N7 with your viewfinder and all that geeky cool stuff but then your pictures will suck because that 16mm is barely usable.

On top of this we have to consider that this is Canon, so 10 years from now there will be a lot of EF-M lenses, a huge used market and a lot of new cameras, why? Because it has always been like this with Canon. Regarding other brands, except for Sony and Nikon who can say this? Olympus may not even exist 10 years from now.

So, imho this camera and the EF-M lenses are a good long term investment, and, as always, launch price means nothing, lets see 3 months after launch.

Important thing is to have good pancakes, an f2.4 wide, and a 50mm f1.something macro would be more than enough if quality is what it seems to be. Canon will deliver such lenses for sure they have the firepower to do that.

Investment is always based on the "platform" or the lenses never on the single body, bodies are going to be changed every 3/4 years, good lenses last decades.
