  • Everyone's personal rating is different, but I find many of the ratings low.  I make that statement as I own both a M1 and a M3.  I find the M3 to be an improvement in every way, AF speed ...
  • Canyon de Chelly is a National Monument in the National Park Service.  Although it sits inside the Navajo Nation. I've been there as recently as 2012 and took hundreds of pictures, no issue. And ...
  • What I say may be controversial but some things to consider: 1.) I understand you may have to pay a lot more for Sony lenses that are equivalent to the EF-M lenses you have currently.  Good glass ...
  • I've not had an issue with it.  I like how it feels holding it with one hand.  I will say with a large EF-S lens like the 10-188mm I have that I tend to still use the lens as my one hand hold.  ...
  • I'm pretty darn happy with mine. I acknowledge all the issues and concerns listed in these forums but I've not really been impacted by them personally, at least not in a big way. Hopefully Canon ...
  • Yep. I'm happy. Very happy actually. I guess I am a pretty vanilla shooter so many of the issues are things I'd not normally see in 99% of my shooting. I primarily use P mode and Av mode. M on ...
  • I like it. Thanks!
  • Created discussions So far, so good.
    So far I am very pleased with the M3. I almost always shoot SOOC JPEG and today was no exception. I made a few settings adjustments on the picture styles and I'm liking this camera. Battery seemed ...
  • I have both the M and the M3. The M3, while different, does not feel cheap to me. It feels as solid and nice as an Oly EM-5 or a Fuji XT-1. I've had both of those as well before. The screen when ...
  • I'm very pleased with the M3. I think you'll be glad you hit the buy button. Hopefully there will be some battery options here soon.
  • Well, I have used both the M and M3 today to compare.  Please note I am sure these all have differences but I tried to keep the Av and ISO the same.  I tried to keep the metering the same.  I ...
  • Added 10 photos to their gallery

  • I only took about 40 shots prior to coming in to review. The battery charged up pretty quickly. I'm going to take it all day with me tomorrow to see what battery life I can get. I'll bring along ...
  • I ordered my M3 and EVF the same way.  So far I am extremely pleased with this purchase.  The resolution from this this is plain amazing!  I know I have some adjusting to do with camera settings ...
  • Great to see your reasons as I truly enjoy your posts, for the pictures and for the insights. I too have purchased a M3, from Japan since I'm in the USA. I received an email this morning showing ...
  • There are many theories on why the M3 (and M2, and 11-22mm and 55-200MM) are not in sale in NA and the US.  Some feel it is so Canon USA (who make the decision on what to sell) can keep their DSLR ...
  • From the specifications there is a lot to be excited about, at least from my perspective.  I have the original M and despite trying multiple and different cameras, I keep coming back to it from ...
  • I guess at the end of the day, much of what is lacking or a weakness is not in the mainstream of Canon's concern.  I think they are more than capable of making any of these wishes or desires ...
  • Replied in So what?
    In general I really like the M concept.  For me, there are situations where the M has issues and those are the rough edges so to speak.  I realize that there is no perfect camera as the cameras ...
  • Creative things like this are fun. No need to apologize. Looks like and Old School Instagram filter. Thanks.
