medon78: I saw in the provided RAW files that in many shots a manual WB setting (daylight) was used.
With AWB some shots get a significantly different color rendition, of course.
Maybe it would be worth a note in the shots' details, to let people know?

@SimonSander could you direct me towards those heaps of glowing reviews of the M5?

Somehow Google can't find them...

The funny thing is all the comments about "great Canon colors" or "bad Canon colors" and how it's been going downhill for Canon in recent cameras (or the other way around)... only to discover that it's probably just down to a good/bad (according to your tastes) choice of WB setting...

Priceless!

Jozef M: If you look at the photos, I know the M5 needs definatly good fast primes ... do it Canon!!!

Samsung didn't fail because they made poor quality gear... they failed because they forgot to market it. Something I am sure Canon will be better at...

What is so had about making small quality lenses for mirror less?

iamatrix: Image quality looks decent and if this was 5 years ago i would say very competitive, but in today's world you have so much incredible color and tone from current crop sensors like Nikon and Fuji. I used to love Canon for its image quality, but times have changed and their images now have that same "look" that seems dated like going to back to a tube TV.

If you mean that some of today's cameras look fabulously digital compared to these, I would have to agree...

Although it would lead me to an opposite conclusion as yours...

YMMV...

Eleson: Where are the pictures of a dog catching a frisbee in mid-air?

That's what I infered from your innuendo but I wasn't sure...

You'll get your answer in the review to come I guess.

I have already a bit more than a hint from having already bought and used the camera but since you like innuendos, let's just say that maybe it's not because the AF is bad that they didn't include pictures of moving things...

:-)

They should also look at what Samsung (RIP) did: 16f2.4 and other pancake lenses would definitely be nice. A simple 45f1.8 could go a long way for portraits.

I sold my Samsung lenses with regrets...

Should not be a problem for the M5 but they probably ran out of frisbees and dogs...

Canon AE1... "stole" it from my mother still-birthed fad for photography.

Later a Pentax Z1p... then a Pentax *istD (that name...).

In the end went back to Canon FF 5D / 6D). The loop is closed.

Retzius: Sears KS-1 and it still works!

Wow! I thought I was the only one to have used one if these!

Rebranded Ricoh with "kind of compatible" K-mount ... viewfinder was huge by today's standards and the camera very pleasant to use.

I bought mine used for around $15 in 2001...

freediverx: "Canon allows you to select which region of the screen is active which means that, regardless of whether you shoot with the camera to your left or right eye, you can ensure that you don't accidentally enable nose focus."

Why don't they do what Apple did with the first iPhone, NINE years ago? Install a proximity sensor that turns off both the display and the touchscreen when the camera is pressed up against the face.

(Damn phone...!)

Because this way you can use the active portion of the screen to move AF point with a finger while your nose inoffensively smudges the other parts of the screen.

J A C S: I tried it with one of my images and what I got was: "A blurry mess taken by a wannabe photographer obsessed with bokeh".

Consider yourself lucky... mine got "does not even qualify as a picture."...

In reply to:

laueddy: I like the M5, I think it is the camera I have been waiting for. Aside from my 2 large cameras (5DsR & 645Z), I have been wanting a slightly smaller camera that has decent AF capability (Ability to change AF Point location, Face-detection & AF Coverage). I tried an A7Rii, but I don' t like it. Difficult menu system, large heavy native lens, and don't work well with my existing Canon lenses. I purchased a SL1 for it's size, but the tiny viewfinder and AF Coverage just isn't sufficient for me. (Gave that camera to my dad).
Provided the M5 can addressed some of the weak points on the M1 & M3, I think I'll pick one up.

@Intermitentoverexp why should I care that other cameras have more features (which features BTW?) if this one has the features I need/want?

beavertown: Given that so many exciting gears are being released, the M5 just became less exciting, therefore it should be queued up for the full review after the others'.

DPR staff, say Hello to your new manager!

What an ugly useless comment. Gives DPR posters a bad rap.

Favorable Exponynt: what is the viewfinder magnification? The specs say 0.39 type evf. I hope that's not it.

0.7x is OK with a nice OLED consyructiin and 120Hz refresh rate.

Voodoo, where did you get this info, I can't find it anywhere (not even in DPR spec sheet... what a shame! :-) )

lol101: Any idea of VF magnification?

At least its OLED and with high refresh rate (120hz).

Tanks for the info.

A bit of a disappointment if true, where did you get the info?

Also what technology is it? OLED? Sequential?

There is surprisingly few infos available on this essential feature...
