Another "pearl" from this author.
How you can compare pixel count of FF and crop camera?
DPR articles are degrading more and more:(((

Kwick1: I agree with the majority of other posters: Without an EVF, even as an accessory, this is a non-starter.

Canon use external EVF, on this camera as well.

dwill23: MISSED THE MARK ON THIS STORY

This author is not in the board rooms, does not know the strategy behind Canon's decision to not come out with the same lenses it already has in a smaller version to mount on the EOSM. Sure, the mount did take some of the portability away, but it allowed me to save $5000 by using what I already had.

He states the adapter is hard to find? Two are available on BH $60, & $100. Both in stock. Use the internet before you write these 'stories'.

I agree with so many other people that Canon knows the US market can afford both a large SLR and small mirrorless, so why make a mirrorless as good as an SLR? Thus no EOS M in US.

Yes, it sucks, but it makes perfect sense. This article was a waste of time to read.

The failure of the EOS M (v1) was due to THIS SITE killing it before it hit shelves with stories like this. The AF was shockingly slow, but would almost always focus perfectly accurately.

Give it a chance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW, the 22mm is awesome.

HowaboutRAW,

Again, if you not looking on M as stand alone system — lenses are not an issue. EF/EF-S lenses with adapter are right there.

EOS-M is additional way to sell Canon glass and to use it with smaller body. This is how I see it:) I'm sure it will be more native glass in the future, but Canon has no need to rush — there is tons of choices via adapter to any specific glass. I supposed to get tomorrow my new toy — Tamron 150-600, it will be fun to try it on EOS-M:)

Zeisschen: another "me-too"-product of Canon 1-2 years after Sony and Panasonic already introduced better attempts *yawn*

Late, boring, no EVF. What the hell are they thinking? Why not just make a nice mirrorless body and some more lenses for it?

I don't get this company.

External viewfinder!!! like in EOS-M3 and G1XMKII

Markintosh: The author probably never had and used EOS-M:) This is the main mistake to look on this small camera as on closed-circle eco-system. This is not Oly, Panasonic, Sony or Fuji — companies who dedicate their entire production to mirrorless cameras and lenses. Stop looking on four native M lenses — with adapter you have access to a tons of fantastic Canon glass and third party lenses. If you need small speedy camera — you have SL1 with real viewfinder and all advantages of DSLR in very compact package. EOS-M is great little camera with amazing IQ and ability ti use same lenses as my 5D. M3 is fantastic improvement of original M, and it's a shame it will not be available in retailers in NA. But there is always online shopping:)))

Also, very nice to see so many comments on such a "bad" product, and so much attention from other brands advocates.

HowaboutRAW:

The only lens I had a problem with adaptor is older Sigma 50mm f/1.4. But I think it may been caused by older firmware of third party lens. The other lenses I tried — 100mm L; 70-200mm f/4 IS; 17-55 IS; EF-S 18-55; Sigma 30mm Art — all working great without any AF speed reduction. I hope M3 will work even better.

22mm f/2 is a gem!
BTW, 11-22mm is most affordable and high quality UWA lens in it's segment. But, to know this details, author must own EOS-M himself first:)

@HowaboutRAW adapter is not slowing anything down in EOS-M, I heard this is a different case in other brands. SONY: One DSLR is not similar to a Canon proportion:) but you're right — you can take Sony out of the list:)

On Hands-on with Canon's 'not-coming-to-USA' EOS M3 article (548 comments in total)
In reply to:

whyamihere: Dear Canon,

Cute camera.

Your PR material appears to be missing any mention of a lens worth giving a darn about.

Let us know when that happens.

PS: Ignore the angry Americans. We all know they just wanted the option for refusing to buy the camera.

1. fantastic and cheap 22mm f/2
2. best in the class and most affordable 11-22mm IS
3. very good and cheap kit 18-55
4. compact tele 55-200mm (I still think it should be cheaper)

and tons of other Canon's glass via adapter:)

Markintosh: Greedy Adobe made it available for CC subscribers only:))) What a stupid move — instead try to invite iPhoto/Aperture users to new platform they trying to push for more. I didn't want to go this way at first and now I will look for alternative if next week Photos.app will be too amateur.

thanks for link:)

On Canon announces 16-35mm F4L and 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 lenses article (368 comments in total)
In reply to:

Olgierd: For $300 I'll buy 10-18 for my little EOS-M. Small and fairly light, cheaper than EFM 11-22 and available in US. Good option to take while I'm hiking.

Canadian dollar is very low now — you can get 11-22 from Henrys.com easy and fast. It will be also covered by Canon's North American warranty. Just as an option:) 11-22mm is AMAZING lens!

Very interesting interview, thanks! Good luck to Sigma:)
Sigma new "Art" lenses are amazing, I'm really enjoying new 30mm f/1.4 lens.

On Canon announces EOS M2 in Japan article (616 comments in total)
In reply to:

R N: hey, gang -- no reason to panic. This is so modest a refresh that it makes no sense to market it in the US or Europe. Now if they bring out a dual-pixel M series camera for Asia only, then you can panic.

Seriously, nothing to worry about here. Move along, move along...

:)) this is funny:) bunch of folks, never had EOS-M and never will, crying about lack of features and innovations:)) so much free time:)

Direct link | Posted on Dec 3, 2013 at 22:58 UTC

Another good reason not to upgrade:( One thing it's to purchase software ones in 18 month, another is to store credit card info there forever because you are leasing the software. But nobody can be sure that Adobe is not store credit card info for person who purchased CS6, for example.

"Smallish screen"? it's bigger than regular camera screen. 5" screen its not compact anymore.

"Manual controls"? This is phone, not DSLR:))

"Photographic ergonomics not the best" and "No dedicated, two-stage shutter button." You are kidding, right?

On Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review preview (2078 comments in total)

I'm happy for Oly fans, but personally don't see the point in bulky, oversized mirrorless camera with small sensor compare to DSLR. The price of body and lenses is separate story — you can find the full frame options very close to this price. All impressive features still doesn't make this camera a professional tool — and here Olympus lost the touch with reality a little bit. Again, this is just my personal opinion.
