Sotomayor: Nice little feature...I'm sure many other manufacturers will follow suit

@BarnET

Every pragmatic M shooter already has access to tons of Canon and third party glass (include macro lenses) via adapter. But how do you know this if you are not one of us:))

Is it same idea as Lensbaby? OK, maybe different idea, but same effect:)

Mark300: I am afraid we will say "good bye" to Cannon and Nikon in few years.
In Germany in 2015 Sony sold more A7 lines cameras than C+N together. Next move from Sony side should be sell cheap adapter from C and N lenses to Sony FE. Thanks to that they may get C & N users who look for smaler , well equipped body.
In future that people switch to Sony lenses and ....

Wake up Canon.

nice science fiction:) it's time to wake up for you.

Thsoft: No 4K. Very Disappointed

I'm very interested to know what you planning to film with this small camera in 4K resolution? seriously! Do you really planning to use it, or just trolling every new camera?

Hugo808: Had a good look for a replacement for my aging Lumix compact and decided a mirrorless would be better than spending all that money on a current high-end pocketable camera like the Sony RX100's as I don't care if it doesn't fit in my pocket...

I tried them all and liked the EOS M3 for it's build quality but not for it's extreme slowness. And now I've had a good look at the pictures I'm glad I went for the bottom of the range Fuji which has amazing IQ and is much lighter - not to mention cheaper - than the Canon.

This is very poor decision to build yours opinion on DPReview sloppy and misleading gallery.
here is some real-life samples: https://www.flickr.com/groups/canon-eos-m3-group/pool/

In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: It's really odd that almost all pictures are with the kit lens or UWA zoom. The only pictures taken with a prime lens (the 22mm F2.0) are at 3200 ISO and above.

Please post a few picts with the 22mm under normal conditions at reasonable ISO. That lens is really popular with the EOS-M crowd, and shots with it would be most helpful for folks considering upgrading.

And while you are at it throw in a few picts with decent EF or EF-S canon glass using the adapter?

Thanks!

ryan2007: I would like to know the experience of the photographer taking the sample galleries. It is either the camera or photographer, but the results are just not good enough to say save your $1,000. If anyone should be annoyed are is the manufacture themselves if this is not a true representation of any cameras ability.

Visit EOS-M forum, see some real photos and read about real–life experiences. These samples are part of non–funny joke:(

Thank you Apple! Finally I can use Photos with my Canon EOS-M3

Hinder: Crap, still no viewfinder?!!!! No thank you. How do you hold it still at 600mm? An add on VF? Might as well carry my SL1 . I really wanted to like it but it's just another Canon fail. :(

I'm pretty sure you will keep it on all the time.
I bet you never hold one in your hand — very nice thing, it also has variable angle, which is very useful feature. I wasn't expect to like it so much on my EOS-M3, but I was wrong.

you know about external EVF, right? it's actually very good, much better than most of build-in competitors.

Craig from Nevada: $399 by Xmas.

They will not be able to move it at that price.

you will be surprised:) it will drop a little bit, but nothing serious. most likely it will bring prices of compacts super-zooms with small sensors down.

No EOS-M3 support! WTF?

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:)
