Agree, 100d is design for existing canon user, won't appeal to native m43 owner

Cannon created the small body Canon EOS 100D/SL1 to prevent other Canon user from jumping to M4/3. The 100D/Sl1 still cannot beat the size and portability of the M4/3 specially the like of OM-D with comparable lenses. Just my take.

I agree with that assessment.  Canon 100d has a very strong pull on me because I shot with canon gear for many years.  I'm familiar with canon menu system, canon lens, and even bad canon quirks.

But I failed to see how a Canon 100d will attract any existing m43/Nex user to switch.  Thus, the only market reason left for 100d is to keep existing canon dslr owner from leaving toward mirrorless setup by giving them something smaller than their 7d/60d/650d.
