Re: WOW - several things come to mind...

Well, if this isn't an official video, then somebody ought to receive an award for making what looks to be something with Canon's fingerprints all over it.

32 MP's - WOW!!!! ( can say "wow" at my age, can't I). Canon, IMO, will sell a ton of these I would imagine. 32 MP more than breaks the mold for APS-C cameras.

Hi Ben, I would love this if and only if they increased their DR to be more competitive while keeping the ISO APS-C class. But that's just for my needs. I guess for a lot of landscape /hiking photographers more resolution anyway is better.

But that brings up a huge point. Look at that friekin' lens in that video - it's the horrible 15-45 F3.5-6.3. Now you'd think with such high resolution, Canon would finally get serious and introduce some new, optically superior kit lenses. Will this "hit or miss" 15-45 be able to do justice to 32 MP's? That's a hard one to believe unless, of course, you were one of the ones who got a first rate copy of that lens.

Either way, I'm in for getting this camera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really love the idea of this camera. I bet the usability is better than Sony particularly for touch screen. No IBIS (overall ok with that, though would prefer it). But looking for compact. More compact than the Fujis, *with* a tilt screen.

I think the EOS M is in need of a portrait prime (F2.0 or F2.5 in the 75-85 mm equiv ) and a medium tele - something in the 135mm equivalent range.

Also hope this camera can get accurate AF.  That would be for me a motivator over m43rds small.
