justmeMN: The Canon SL1/100D is 10% narrower, 3% shorter, and weights 18% less than the Olympus E-M1.
"the mirrorless onslaught"
You sir, are funny.
trulandphoto: This might just be my next EOS-M lens. But do I get EF mount so I can use it with my 7D and the adapter on the EOS-M or the EF-M mount version?
We're around. We're just a tad more mature on the evolution scale.
Peter Bendheim: The EOS-M in it's current form with the firmware upgrade is a surprisingly nice little camera to use. It's really small with the pancake lens, absolutely solid build that is all magnesium alloy, a tempered glass LCD and pretty good image quality. I like it's ergonomic simplicity, it's easy to use, the lenses are metal bodied, and the IQ is great. The pancake lens is razor sharp, for example. Really as good as anyone could wish for. It would be nice if it had a viewfinder that one could attach. It's also a refreshing design break from all the fake retro, fake leather, Leica look a-likes, and other gimmicks.Hate it as much as you like, folks, especially those of you that have never tried it, but it occupies a deserved place in my camera bag along with the bigger and flashier gear, and has produced images I am very happy with and that form part of my portfolio. I'm sure Canon will eventually produce a more pro model, but this camera isn't half as bad as most of you would like it to be.
"I wonder how many people who comment here actually own or have used the EOS-M."
Most of these folks are m43 fanboys, if you look at their posting history you'll see. The one thing I know about them is that they spend an awfully large amount of time attacking and mocking other camera brands and types.
They hate FFs (Nikon and Canon), anything Sony, Fuji, etc. And of course the EOS M. Really immature and childish, really.
Most telling is, when you look at forums of the other cameras, members there hardly ever mention the m43 system, let alone flame them all the time. It just feels like the m43 fanboys are compensating for something.
AbrasiveReducer: I figured it out. In order to fend off mirrorless cameras, Canon has introduced a new system with 3 lenses and a second body that they know nobody will buy, just to prove their boring old SLRs are better. It's an expensive but diabolically clever approach!
Clever indeed. That's why they're making money. Unlike some other camera makers.
Gregm61: All THREE lenses of the system. Wow.....what a "committment" ;)
Lens quantity can grow in the future for a system. But not the sensor size ;) ;) ;)
tron555: What is the reason it will not be sold in the European or US markets? Seems like that limits the sales possibilities just a bit? Does anyone know why Canon is doing this? I'm not interested in such an ugly, bland camera with so few features, just wondering why they limit sales to only one region.
Ugly and bland? Try worrying about how your pictures look, instead of how your camera looks.
Catalin Stavaru: Basically, there wasn't a lot that was wrong with the EOS M. Autofocus is now fixed, picture-to-picture time much reduced, and Wi-Fi added. Basic very compact camera with the highest APS-C image quality. I am beginning to like it. Hopefully I can pick up one for $300 soon.
$300? You'll have to wait a while. Canon is asking for $627 now.
Lawrencew: "It appears that the EOS M2 won't be sold in either the European or US markets."
is that because you know it won't, or just speculation on DPR's part because there has been no European or US announcement yet?
What does that say about Canada? They got the 11-22.
reginalddwight: I think Canon made a huge mistake with the EOS M2 by forgoing a killer pink version.
Those are mid-term special edition release coming in a few months.
"These two features are very serious missing."
I'm more upset that this new model still doesn't make me coffee in the morning and doesn't pick up my dry cleaning. Ridiculous!
Apple is like the rail-thin chick who can eat anything she wants and still look gorgeous and get hit on left and right.
Apple-haters are like those who chew on celery and still gain 10 pounds a week. They are totally annoyed that other phones are faster, have more features, cheaper, etc. but Apple still outsells them.
Who do they take out their anger on? The "stupid" iSheep that enable Apple, of course.
dale thorn: Is the biometric mandatory? I'd like to know how I can avoid being fisted by Apple, although it's certainly inevitable in the coming apocalypse.
"No fingerprints from me for NSA :)"
They don't need it. They can crack any kind of encryption out there so they'll get to your info anytime they want.
Rbrt: I never did get Facebook. I am currently involved in a legal dispute. One of the first things my attorney asked me is whether I had a Facebook site. I told her I didn't and that I never understood why anybody would want to expose their private life to millions of strangers. She nodded approvingly. Apparently, even if you make your profile "private" you can be forced to reveal it under the rules of disclosure. This latest revelation makes it even worse. I laugh at those who talk about "Facebook bashing" being the latest trend. What is wrong with you?
Members of my family have profiles on Facebook. They put pictures of their kids on it. I don't get that. I don't get it at all.
"I laugh at those who talk about "Facebook bashing" being the latest trend. What is wrong with you?
Actually, I said Apple bashing is trendy, and FB-bashing is cool. Anyway, what's wrong with me? Nothing. But what's wrong with you? Plenty of folks here are bashing FB. Did I not state a fact here? I didn't say if they're right or wrong to bash FB, did I?
cjcampbell: Social media is destroying itself. All you see are friendship tests, invites to play boring games, and insulting messages that say that if you don't "Like" a picture of a dancing cat then you hate God, babies, and America.
No thumbs down on DPReview either. I don't see sites with thumbs down these days anymore. Guess it hurts feelings and people stop coming back when they associate a site with negativity.
Facebook bashing - it's what's cool these days. Although Apple-bashing is still quite trendy.
EvokeEmotion: Where have I seen something like this before?
Look who's talking.
Where have I seen something like this before?
white shadow: It looks like a Canon 5D MkII with the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L MkII. I am sure Canon would be interested to buy it for their testimonial advertisement.
The memory card would then be a CF card. I am surprise it manage to survive the acid in the stomach. Interesting! Wonder what brand it is.
No, it has an internal flash housing, so it couldn't be the 5D2. And of course, it actually says 60D on the camera if you look closely.
Ed_arizona: The alligator tasted a Canon and barfed
A Nikon guy saying this. Of course.
Boy that G16 is one ugly looking camera.
