You guys are looking at it from the wrong angle.
The EOS M was so good that there was little Canon could do to improve it in the next version.
dual12: How many Canon fanboys will fall for this...again?
This is not a worthy upgrade from the first version but for others that have canon gear then it will do the job. This camera is best to complement an existing canon system and not replace it.
photo nuts: Obviously targetted at Asian and Japanese market. In Europe and N. America where sales of DSLR outstrip that of mirrorless cameras by 9.5:1 and 8.5:1 respectively, there's no point in having a M2.
Japan is in Asia.
This thing needs to be half the price and sexy the thing up. Put the apple touch on it and maybe the hipsters will have a look at it. It needs to get social and go viral. Its not a serious tool for pros so any mentions on a site like DP Review is not going to do it any favors. Just look at previous comments.
Will the compact flash card die now! all it takes is for canon and Nikon to stop using this format. SD cards are getting faster and faster. all laptops have sd card slots.
Stop whining about the d600. Sometimes life deals you lemons, learn from it and move on.
I wish all lenses were weather resistant. The most annoying thing is dust on the other side of the glass. You can see it but can't do anything about it.
Too many people getting use to free windows updates.
Perfect camera for event photography. Subjects will be guessing what camera it is. For all you haters out there, you must drive a Toyota.
All eyes on this camera since nothing else for Amazon to sell over Christmas.
larrytusaz: Again, not a fan of having to click "next" for every single item on the list. Hate that design, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it. (By the way, I notice that the same ads remain, so what's the point?)
"Shutter shock" on the Olympus E-5--a lot of Olympus users have complained about that, and despite the great images the E-PL1 and E-PM1 were capable of, it, along with the fact that it took Olympus forever to improve their sensors, is why I moved to Sony NEX via C3. I've never noticed the shutter shock problem when using it, & its sensor was way ahead of the older m4/3rds models, the newer m4/3rds models cost much more since it took them so long to get the newer sensor.
I don't even read the articles anymore. I just go straight to the comments for a summary.
1200 plus comments. Fasting trending article on DP record?
Now put this technology in the M.
Be good to have the original photos to compare with.
I don't even read the articles anymore. Just the title and straight to the comments for a summary.
to the whiners, get a Sony sensor, better glass or full frame. you do have choice.
If they wanted small they should have made this in the EF-M mount.
Really good article that makes you stop and think. One thing I would have liked to see be mentioned is buying gear you can comfortably afford.
I see too many people buy gear they can't really afford and end up babying the crap out of it.
Hasselblad starting their own niche market.
IGC - Interchangeable Grip Camera.
This is just fugly. Why not integrate the grip to the body seamlessly. The grip only looks like it will do half the job as well.
One positive is that it will be a good collectors item tho because it will be so rare.
Peter K Burian: This type of news item requires some additional info. Otherwise it's just data from a press release. (DPReview usually does a good job of this, but not this time.)
e.g. Do any cameras benefit from the new UHS-II cards? Or do current cameras merely provide UHS-I speed with such cards? i.e. Do we need to wait for future cameras that will be able to take advantage of the UHS-II speed?
Does Toshiba even market cards under its own name? (I have never seen one) If not, what companies use the Toshiba technology? i.e. What brands should we look for with this technology?
And when (in future) are such cards likely to be available??
With a google search I found the answer to the first question. (Current cameras can NOT provide the fast speed with the II cards). And the last question (Oct. or Nov. 2013) but I'm surprised DPR did not provide such info.
I had an old 2GB Toshiba SD card so they definitely market their own cards
Good job Sigma. Competition is good for consumers. Now just reduce the price a little more to put some real pressure on Canikon.
