biza43: Funny, in all my travels, what I see is tourists using DSLRs, smartphones, or tablets, to take photos. I hardly see anyone carrying a mirrorless camera...
They still have a long way to go to make an impact in the lower DSLR segment.
For Canon to be serious at mirrorless, two things need to happen: cause an impact in the lower end of the segment; and pros need to start using mirrorless instead of their DSLRs.
Mirrorless is fine for the enthusiast market, or as a secondary camera for travels, etc, but still has a long way to go.
Other than that, this is another article from DPR badmouthing Canon, nothing new...

If they wait till then they will have already lost customers.
Francis Carver: "One of the most discussed cameras of 2012????"
Wow.... 2012 must have been a very short year indeed. I thought the world was not supposed to end until sometime in November, no?
Re. the model designation.... these weirdo model numbers are getting more and more ridiculous from all mfrs. Looks like it is the lab rates themselves deciding that the thing will be called at the end.
There's over 1100 comments on the E-M5 preview, perhaps that's the reason for the 'most discussed of 2012' tagline?
