skanter: Will it do anything significantly better than LR?

Yes. It won't touch your wallet unless you want it.

Mared: The First Pro for the M5 = "New 24MP sensor offers much-improved dynamic range". The translation is - This is the worst apsc sensor on any mirrorless camera. It should be listed as a Con. I wonder why it's listed as a "Pro".

Did someone with a big Canon sleep with your wife?

Looks pretty good from an optical point of view.

A bit dark at the long end but looks more than decent as a travel all purpose lens.

I would really like a 15-60f4 though...

m3: I took about 1.8 million shots on the 70-300L and it never hiccuped once. I use Nikon, Sony and Pentax gear too but you've got to hand it to Canon for robustness.
If this model follows suit (not expecting 'L' figures) it will suffice for almost all users.

MasterWayne... you seem doubtful about what m3 is writing... I wonder why?

After all, the 70-300L was introduced in 2011 (if memory serves) so it's only 1000 shots a day with the lens everyday since then...

Obviously, m3's robustness is comensurate with Canon's one.

:-)

khunpapa: Lack of 4k vdo is not just lack of 4k vdo.
You miss 8k photo which can extract from that 4k stream!

For "PRO" people, this 8k jpg is nothing. But for newbies and weekend warriors, it's brave new world!

Shoot first, select later: no more OOF macro shot, no more missing bird-in-flying, etc, etc.

Hope in the next year, DPreview would start thinking of 'ordinary people' in real life.

Ah OK... 8mp stills not 8k, I get it now. Thanks.

Doesn't really help with AF tracking for BIF or using fast shutter speeds to freeze movement though, unless you use 4k streams only in the hope to extract stills later.

My Panasonic LX100 has that I think (4k Photo if I remember well) I will try it to see if how it works.

I guess that it's the ultimate spray and pray though...

How do you manage to extract 8k images from a 4k video...?

Some form of black magic?

Any examples to share of well focused, not motion blurred 8k birds in flight extracted from a 4k stream?

LMBC: I remember a camera that i more than 2 years old from an manufacture that doesn't exist anymore that was almost as good as this one... Sorry, let me rephrase... that beated this camera in all features....

Canon I still have your lens but I need a better camera to replace my old NX1... in a few years...

Samsung NX1 was launched @€1500 body only... hardly the same price range as the M5.

Regardless, the NX line is dead and the M5 is launched with a price a bit too high...

I am in the process of selling my NX gear for peanuts... no one would be happier if Samsung had pushed on instead of flipping the finger to us all...

Lesson learned.... stay with Canon.

Clearly the M5 is not aimed at similarly priced cameras as the NX1.

It's a perfect replacement for the NX30 though and is a much better camera.

My NX30 is for sale adios Samsung.

LFPCPH: The Canon ESO M5 is just a little larger than the Samsung NX10 that came out in Jan. 2010. It has a better resolution but otherwise very similar cameras.

Really?

Where can I buy Samsung's latest cameras? For some reasons I can't find any in my neighborhood...

Do you have a roadmap if their next release?

Asarhaddon: it will sell because name is canon
Because there is a klan that thinks canon will do the best
A6300,6500, xt2, Em1 ii better than M5
But name is Canon
No matter what you say to them, their ideas do not change :)

Or maybe it will sell because it's an adequate camera if you have a Canon ecosystem already and is very nice to use?

You seem to have nothing but contempt for photographers using Canon cameras... why is that?

Canon produce cameras and lenses. Most of them far exceed in potential what I need for my photography, why should I buy the current latest and greatest?

I have the NX10 and I can tell you that the M5 is a much much better camera in every way.

The only similarity is the form factor.

Another sizeable advantage of the Canon is that they appear to be still producing photographic equipment...

rajdude: ok , first things first....I am really, Really, REALLY worried about this problem "Shutter button lacks responsiveness". Wait a minute........is this a cellphone or what? Shutter button is not responsive in a THOUSAND dollar camera? WHAT the @#$@#$ ??

DPreview...are you 100% sure? Maybe your review unit was bad?

I request you to double - check and please clarify this problem you are reporting....because I do not see any other reviewer complaining about this problem. To me, this problem would be VERY obvious to anyone reviewing this camera.

I tried to understand what this is about.

If I take my M5 (TV mode, single AF to the back button, single shot) and press the shutter... it takes a picture... even if it is completely oof.

If I just mash the shutter, release it and mash it again as fast as I can, it takes approximately 3 images per second, is this what we are talking about? How fast should it be?

Of course, if I wanted to be ready for a imprevisible shooting occasion, I would use MF, hyperfocal and 9fps drive to get the shot and it looks like it should work...

Theres is indeed maybe around 1/3rd of a second delay when mashing the shutter. Not really problematic to me but I'll check if my 1Dmkii or 6D is quicker at this game.

Full Stop: Dear Canon design team,
why did you made it look like a "Canon" T60?

What a booooring camera.

Could you direct me to an entertaining camera...?

My son's birthday is approaching and I'm looking for a camera that would do a few tricks and possibly say a few (good taste) jokes...

This M5 is a camera probably priced too high for what it is... I kept repeating this to myself but somehow pushed the "Buy" button anyway...

Does Canon put something in the tap water ?

I am very happy with the camera, the 11-22 is practically bolted to it, only briefly supplanted by the 22mm or the occasional EF 35 or 50...

And by the way I am left eyed and have no problem operating the camera FWIW.

odpisan: Pentax K-70 is better ..

Love the K-70 (and Pentax products generally) but... went with Canon anyway... I can send you a list of reasons why if you wish.

zero sector: great camera as d300 was. DSLRs still rules in some categories.

Tommi... I use both DSLR and mirrorless of various brands so which "side" am I on?

Fanatical talks are a thing I try to avoid. I'll just leave it at that.

watch the unbiased reviews
I'm a D7200 owner and a Fuji X-T2 owner and I love both my friend uses the D500 which I have used on occasions

All the "biased" reviews I have read say otherwise... where are those "unbiased" ones?

Tommi... I can understand the size and weight remark compared to some mirrorless but the slowness and cumbersomeness...?
The D500 smokes every mirrorless camera on the market in the AF dept and is a very straightforward camera to use... unless you believe the hype or are used to pointing at screens to do everything.
