io_bg: They're trying not to cannibalize their FX DSLR sales so hard that they're cannibalizing their company as a whole.

The underlying element when it´s talk about cannibalizing - is fear.
The signum of Nikon and Canon the last 4-5 years.

bokane: No concrete criticism other than: "DPAF isn't the kind of function that's necessarily going to grab the attention of a potential buyer. Like – say – 4K video might. Or a super high frame-rate mode, or slow-motion movie capture"

Most users, I imagine, are are not that concerned about the video specs. Basically a pointless article.

"Basically a pointless article." According to who? Are you God?

TORN: So Canon creates a mid level mirrorless that is powerful enough for most situations and actually pleasant to use with lenses that do not break the bank and many options if you are already invested into Canon and the only things which come to mind is "doesn't have 4K and isn't high end", really?

Where were the articles like Sony and its usability issues? Fuji and its Lightroom issues? Fuji are you crazy - 1700 for the X-T2? Max specs but overheating? How many tries does a company need to have a camera match its awesome specs in user experience?

I think many people miss the point with the M5 and just look for what it isn't. Canon is a conservative company with a DSLR line to protect. They do what they have to do which might not be to satisfy spec junkies with a side product in the middle of their lineup for a small and troublesome side market.

"Canon is a conservative company with a DSLR line to protect."

If we dig a little more deep, this protection is based on fear. Without fear, no protection. Canon is afraid.

Tom Caldwell: 4K video, super high frame rate and slow motion movie are not very high on my needs agenda. I must be maturing.

What makes or breaks a camera for me is if it is actually nice to use. Sony can pack all the tech into a camera it chooses but until it makes a camera that I actually like using it is all uphill for my custom.

Maybe the M5 isn't too bad at all ....

For a photographer with very little need for video, this camera is probably a very nice option, yes. Has anyone claimed otherwise?

justmeMN: Barney, your rambling article is big disappointment.

JustmeMN. What is your very humble opinion about people here with no disappointment over the article?

Difficult not to agree.
If Canon is so innovativ and wants to be i the mirrorless front line, why ignore video? (High frame rates, 4K, log profiles, head phone jacket, zebra etc?)

How difficult can it be to incorporate 1080p 120fps,15 fps burst shooting with continuous autofocus, or headphone jack? The dinosaur Samsung Nx1 had it two years ago.

Shall be interesting to see if M5 can match the video quality of the 5 years old Nex-5n. I doubt it.

armandino: Of course no 4K. Could not have expected less from Canon. King of the crippling games.

I have both Canon and Sony (and Panasonic). Unfortunately many Canon lenses. But I save them, can be handy to have when Canon has catched up in 4-5 years.

22codfish: So this is the camera for the wimps that complained about weight!

427 grams stripped compared to 1010 grams for a Pentax K-1 full frame. For about a pound more you get ten times the camera.

Who are "we"?

JBrown86: What a revolutionary idea and design Canon have come up with! I'm sure other manufactures with take note and soon follow suit. Watch out Sony, Fuji, Olympus....

Yeah, the other companies should remove 4k, slowmotion features etc to come down to the same level.

Even the lack of 1080p 120fps (or any slow motion feature?!) is a nice non-move forward.

In reply to:

The Squire: An f2.8 lens made a lot of sense in front of the 1" sensor. You got effective light gathering and DoF control that was on-par with an APSC DSLR with superzoom - With overall IQ being probably a bit better, good build quality and a more convenient package.

With this lens, the camera is back in traditional bridge-camera territory. A good bridge camera, but no longer a DSLR alternative.

Totally agree.

Elaka Farmor: 'important to increase development speed' Means that Canon is very proud of its brand new 60fps 1080p feature?!? If the 4K introduction will come in the 90D in 2018 I would be surprised. I rather guess it will be implemented in the 100D in 2020. I regret that I (2011) bought myself into the Canon Camera system.

Haha! Very kind of Canon, but no thanks!
