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!

On City Tower (Torun, Poland) in the Tamron Prize Challenge: Travel and Nature challenge (247 comments in total)

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.
