About me:

Sold the Canon 7D and Mamiya 645. Considering what the next step will be.
Picked up a Canon M and later a Panny G6. Just sold the G6 and picked up the Nikon D5300. I found I missed a DSLR.

Once in a while I still pick up the surprisingly nice Canon SX230.

I still like to make large prints of landscapes and still life. Trying to decide on the next "real" camera. To me a photograph is only a photograph when it is printed. Just my take from an old timer. ;-)

Don Karner: Why do we mess up photos on purpose?

Is is called style? Or what?

Thanks for your thoughtful reply. I always try to visualize in B&W when shooting. I know that shooting with a pinhole or Holga does change the image capture process (and thought process). But sometimes I wonder why we do it when the general public seems to just want everything in focus and in saturated color...... ;-)

itsastickup: It's a beautiful camera.

However:

Show me the bokeh, show me the bokeh, show me the bokeh!!!

And not at $900, FFS. These clowns won't crack mirroless until they realise that the common man wants everything but his kid's face out of focus. And he gets it from APS-C for less than $200

In my experience, the common man and woman want to see everything in the picture in focus. Only us photographers enjoy creamy out-of-focus areas.

vroger1: Still has that Teensy sensor?? What's the point? My results with the EOS M (yes reallythe EOS M with an Optical v/f) are so remarkable at APS-C size, that I refuse to go small. Even my Lumix m4/3 can't cut Black and White as well.

Really guys? How long did you use the M? I find it makes much better files than a Lumix m4/3. You probably won't want to shoot car racing with it but other than that, quite capable. far from a mess.

On shots of the little girl, seems like the hair is always out of focus and even the eyes mostly. Did the camera just miss the focus or was that intentional?
Most of the shots seem a touch soft.

JEROME NOLAS: OK, so where's 35mm(eqv.) f2.8 for $500? You have to use 24mm 2.8D
I had one during film era but it's almost three decadas ago...Nikon still makes so many old timers I can't believe it!!!

I don't love Canon but I do enjoy using my Canon M. The files it creates are quite nice. Fine detail and color handling, especially for a small mirrorless camera. It is a nice complement to my newish Pana G6.

Best bang for the buck was the Panasonic G6 two lens kit. Which of course, was not on the list.
