It's an entry level camera to the EOS system. Why does it need "cool aspects?" It simply needs to meet the needs of buyers. It is small and light, has a refined touch screen interface and simplified but highly functional external controls. It has a good sensor, and works with all EF and EF-S lenses with a simple adaptor, and with the EOS flash system, and other accessories.

How about this: If they wanted to put out an EF-M camera to position BELOW the EOS-M, is it even possible to do so?

What could they possibly do to go LOWER than an EOS-M?

I don't know why they would want to, but they could:

use a cheaper sensor, use a cheaper build - all plastic rather than the alloy frame, leave off the stereo mic and mic input, leave off the hotshot, make it larger and heavier, use a much lower resolution screen, leave out some of the firmware features ...

Clearly EOS-M is positioned at the BOTTOM of all reasonably conceivable EF-M mount cameras from a company of Canon's reputation and standing...

What has it's position at the bottom of the EOS line got to do with Canon's reputation? Every maker has entry level cameras as well as more sophisticated ones. What is your point?

... with hinky AF to boot.

Uncertain until production cameras are tested. Why do you need to keep criticizing this camera?
