Canon's mirrorless gets no respect anywhere, it seems.

I've been reading the other mirrorless forums and when people compare the different formats of mirrorless, the M is always dismissed, trashed and laughed at, if not blatantly ignored by non M owners.

When one of the regulars of the M forum try to defend it, they get the same treatment from these people as well.

I just wish Canon will strike back with a vengeance, releasing M bodies with blindingly fast AF, faster than any mirrorless out there, and other goodies. I also hope they release a slew of excellent EF-M primes and zooms with prices in line with the current EF-M lenses.

In other words, I want to see those arrogant M43 and NEX users drop their jaws

Even if the M cost upwards to $1299 and the best M43 and NEX bodies were priced under $400, the M would still be the best camera. We would have all bought the M over a $299 GX7; it's a no brainer. Even if the M was around $1000, you essentially have all of the features a pro photography would need at the fraction of the cost!

Who needs a FF sensor anyway? Mirrorless is superior, due to its compact size and touch focus, for any photographer and the M is class leading.

And finally all those M43 gearheads are ignorant of the fact that the APS-C sensor is LARGER than M43. Obviously the M is better! I'm not sure about the NEX but based on pictures I've seen it must be smaller. Also, NEX E mount hardly has any lenses. Both systems are dying and are not profitable.

Canon will soon release two new bodies and several new lenses, don't worry! Everyone will own and be using an M in a year and you'll no longer need to tell others "I told you so!" Even pros! There's a Pro-M on the way with the 70D technology and I expect every fashion and sports photographer to realize that mirror less is best when this happens.
