I love my M.
JJLMD: Canon and Nikon are tomorrow's IBM and Kodak unless they undergo an extreme makeover. I rekindled this hobby in earnest about 2 years ago after decades of disinterest. When I started researching gear, I started researching only Canon and Nikon but it didn't take me very long to realize that Sony, Fujifilm and Olympus were making the most exciting products. Look, there are still people who still see Cadillac as THE prestige brand so it'll take awhile but there's no doubt in my mind that Canon and Nikon are on the same path as IBM and Kodak. These companies were once dominant and during their reign, it was unimaginable they would fall all the way to the bottom.
Hmmmm, google "Sony bankruptcy"
beavertown: The worst investment ever made by Tameron. Who owns EOS-M?
Even the population of the unwanted Nikon 1 system is much higher than the EOS-M.
I love my M, this lens will make it more useful when out and about and when I need to, I can use my L lenses.
:-) Challenge is for "T" horniness! Sorry couldn't resist.
Daniel Stehura: 12.8 megapixel........... What year is this? Slackers at Canon pumping out another under pixeled camera. Great Internet camera just don't blow up past 8x10. It's as big as a f 150 Ford truck, rather gross in Size and design. For a small Camera the Sony RX 100 II Has better image quality, Sony uses Carl Zeiss Lenses the best. Canon lenses are #3 after Nikon. I would have to have 3 beers to drink this big clunky boxy camera pretty. The Pixel count is from the year 2000!!!! What in the next 10 years they will be up to 20.2 Megapixel...... Good luck Canon for milking the pixel count for your profit taking. Nikon D800 is progressive and my 18x22 inch Epson 3880 shots are Razor sharp like a Ansel Adams print, Well Almost lol
A lot of people don't want a tiny camera, you can use a phone if you want tiny, therefore phone cameras are better than the sony. Also, phone companies honor their warranties unlike sony did on mine.
I don't care for small cameras like the sosony. I don't care what features it has. I have an iPhone if I need small. Who carries a camera in their pocket anyway? My phone is smaller than the rx100 so that makes it better.
MarcMedios: This camera is a real game changer. My main objection (shared by many pros I know) was the lack of viewfinder. First, who wants to look like a soccer mom focusing and second, impossible to really frame and focus in most conditions. The pop up viewfinder destroys all of those objections in a second. Also, it doesn't eat valuable real estate on the top of the camera. Add that to absolutely no shutter lag, a quality lens and a 20mp sensor and you have the beginning of the end of low-end pro-wannabe cameras. Thank god it costs $800 meaning a lot of soccer moms and mammarazzis won't buy it. Next step, a 5:1 zoom, perhaps 24-135? That would be a killer combo
Hmmmm, nice try. Not a good out.
"Thank god it costs $800 meaning a lot of soccer moms and mammarazzis won't buy it."
Huh? Why would you care who buys it?
Jennyhappy2: Sure seems to be ALOT of interest in the RX100 III, over 1,000 comments on the First Impressions Review...nearly twice as many as the G1X II which was posted a week ago. Hasn't even been released yet and looks like Sony has yet another hit on their hands.
And just how does that affect you? Billions and billions of McDonalds hamburgers have been served so that makes the sony look like a loser now.
What is is? Maybe they should hire someone to take a better picture.
Okay, that was fun, clicking and holding on photo while moving cursor around in circles makes him look like he's driving over bumps. But what else do you do with it? It looks nice though.
How do you tell if someone is lgbt by looking at them or are we supposed to ask?
Why does Europe get the grip and not U.S.?
I don't believe holding your phone up two feet higher across open waters will do anything to boost a signal. Looks staged. How do we know these guys weren't just too cheap to go inside the concert and are rocking' out outside the stadium?
I would like it for the EOS M when I don't want to carry a lot, this and the 22mm for low light will be fine for what I do.
Nice, this was my choice.
Images by Kipper: Pixel peeking and it still looks like a great shot. Well done ~ Kipper.
Hmmm, too late, I already declared it on October 12th.
