D1N0: Where's Pentax you bunch of Hipsters!
Watch the whole video. 58:34. ;-)
What a wonderful insightful group of people. Bravos! Great to see such talents behind Dpreview!
In light of Canon's most recent comments, I am reminded of this article I read a while back:
Some parallels dare I say?
Richard Schumer: It appears to me that Mr. Maeda identifies the intended buyers of this line of cameras to be photojournalists , not advanced amateurs. For PJs to require similar pixel-level quality to APS sized sensors indicates to me PJs want to be able to crop severely and that is more important than dynamic range.
To an artist, the opposite might be true, but artists are not their intended target.
There is nothing to see here. Move on now... You are not the intended audience for Canon's product.
"However I get the feeling that users in the US don’t really take a liking to small cameras. That’s just my sense. "
Really? I like my A7 just fine thank you. I just didn't like what Canon had to offer in that segment. To think I was a loyal customer with Canon for over 30 years.
Atsyn: I dont see the point of this EOS M compared to µ43, fuji or sony mirroless...
I auto focus Canon lenses on my A7 with adapter all the time...
67gtonr: I have been using my EOS M for over 1 1/2 years without issue, I have been following any posts about the system online and in the EOS M Forum here and have not once come across a post about needing to have an M repaired for something under warranty, no overheating when taking video, no banding, no oil or dust on the sensor, no shutter slap issues, etc. I am confident that this iteration will also have the high quality build of its predecessors.
How about: "If you never use it, you will never need to repair it!"
drjs: Canon's vision of a professional photographer is one that has 4 cameras strapped to their body. 1 for still, 1 for general purpose, 1 for video and 1 for low light. They reason it is 4 times of sell. It is hard to fault that kind of logic.
I think you missed my point. There is a difference between SONY's approach and Canon's approach. Between A7S, A7, A7r, a particular model excels at a task but isn't crippled for another task. Canon's approach of artificially limit the ISO and not releasing EOS M in US both strike me as company's mentality of "what we know photographer needs and you should confirm to our way to thinking". Although they sell a lot of cameras, their lead is slipping in multiple fronts because this philosophy.

Next year, Canon will upgrade this model with a red mounting ring for 200 dollars more. Oh wait, not for US customers...
Next year, this service will launch with a RED Logo and they will charge twice as much!
That is some expensive white paint they are using! Worthy of a $150 price bump! NOT!
Says it is using alpha mount. What the heck? A new mount???
This is how to detect cheaters.
1). All votes should appear evenly distributed in a Gaussian manner.2). Shouldn't have extraordinary number of votes. (i.e. if average votes for all pictures should 16, it should be 16)
It is sad I have to go to #8 to find the true #1 image. As you can imagine, in an internet voting system like this, voting fixing is simple and easy. This is the first image where votes appeared in a meaningful Gaussian pattern.
