susan2012: How much smaller is this camera than something like a Sony A7 with 50 mm F1.8 lens?

It seems like neither the body is significantly smaller nor the lens since the smaller sensor requires larger aperture for same subject isolation/DoF.

Anyone have a comparison of the actual size?

Of course! it's common sense. A body has to be big enough to be ergonomic and the lens is like a bucket collecting light. If the bucket is a different size it won't collect the same light. I know it's an over simplification, but the essence is right. Small sensor cameras are not about gaining greater DOF they have other benefits. The truth is everything has trade offs

Paul B Jones: Glad that Mr. Britton was able to conceal his disappointment, rise to occasion, and conduct a great little interview.

:)

Love all these DPR videos.

In fairness if I interpreted the article right. The big disappointment is effectively the M3 wasn't the M5.

ObelixCMM: With new DIGIC 7 processor, why did they restrict video quality of M5 to 35 Mbps compared to 80D's 90 Mbps with older DIGIC6 processor?

If what Obelix said is true I'd also like to know the answer

King of Song: I agree that it doesn't look as good as the new Hasselblad X1D, but it may very well be the superior camera?

For me personally, I care far more about the images my camera gives me, rather than the image my camera gives me. I'd rather show off my photography, than show off my camera.

One looks pretty, the other a trade tool

The new menu is the most interesting feature. If they fix it across the camera range I might take their products more seriously

Rouseabout: So basically this camera is a 'big disappointment' because it's everything you hoped the m3 would have been and...? I agree with your ramblings but you publish ramblings now?

Your question appears misplaced, what precisely in the post does it address? Or is it that you believe opinion pieces require lengthy and confused or inconsequential rambling?

In reply to:

Jefftan: same price A6300 vs M5 (4k, weather seal ,better Sony sensor )
for now A6300 is a smarter buy

But I really hope m5 sell well and Sony will put more effort into APS-C
and more important APS-C lens which they seem to have abandon

With all the hype around FE, I bet Sony still make most money from APS-C
no new APS-C lens is because of no competition

Sony even admit why they delay release A6300 is in their words "no real competition exist"
That is no good for any one. I am a sensible fanboy

Actually if Canon can provide 15mm equivalent ultra wide lens, 4k
I will jump ship in the future but not now
Mindelessly defend a brand is not a sign of any mature person

For example BS like no 4k, 1080p is good
if u really wish, can u shoot 1080p in A6300?
Also well known fact if u covert 4k video to 1080p quality would be much better

so no 4k and no weather seal but at A6300 price can not put a good spin on it except by mindless fanboy
M5 touchscreen indeed useful, no argument

The reason I don't buy Sony has nothing to do with any feature set, but because every Sony cam I borrowed I found unpleasant to use. Unfortunately for me a cameras features only have to be relatively ballpark, but it must make the whole photographic experience enjoyable regardless of specifications. disclaimer I've owned Canikon, Fuji, Oly

Timbukto: Canon couldn't have released the M5 in its current form any sooner than the 80D itself. That said I am also dissapointed that it wasn't 2 years earlier because I think 2 years ago I still had such a great selection of Canon lenses and primes that I checked to be excellent copies, and finding great copies of lenses is the biggest pain in the butt in any system. In fact if you hate lens variation like I do, Sony is one of the *worst* brands to try out. Canon's development in bodies is slow. However lets realize that mistakes in bodies slowly get washed away. Mistakes in lenses can take decades before a MK II comes around. Sony has made some misses with a lens lineup where you'll be waiting for MK II for a LONG time. Nikon's 24-70 f2.8 VR is also a miss for me. Having a full EOS mount line-up with the most *hits* at cheap prices goes a long way. The 200mm f2.8 II prime is a $500 hit that on an EOS M5 is a 320mm f4.5 equivalent, *that* is something worth considering more than 4k.

I'm a canon user and I agree. also i think adapting lenses defeats the purpose of going mirrorless.

I heard those capitalist fascists designed the camera not to focus unless you purchase and attach an additional lens.

Is the menu system more like EOS or Powershot?

Thomas are you saying you'd prefer to buy non native lenses and adapters than have good native Ef-m optimised lenses available? Odd indeed!

I'm pretty sure if people wanted to buy ef lenses they would be looking at a different system.
