cosinaphile: heres what dpr said about the cons of the sister camera of the m6 , the m5
has anything changed ? petapixels audio program suggests its a somewhat crippled m5 , i genuinely welcome being educated about this .... i have strong interest in all mirrorless systems , and welcome wisdom .... so below is the m5 cons

Native lens lineup is sorely lacking
No 4K video capture
1080p video capture lacks detail
Viewfinder blackout is very long
Low light image quality significantly worse than peers
Shutter button lacks responsiveness
JPEG noise reduction and sharpening are behind the competition
Limited buffer for burst shooting
Ergonomics may trouble left-eyed shooters
Auto ISO almost unusably limited
Raw dynamic range still lags behind the competition

i understand the issues related to a smaller flavor of apsc canon provides , but beyond that , it seem canon may be playing the add remove features game , they are famous for... is it true ?

buffer depth happens on any camera once you exceed it. how is that a major problem? The 80D is 20-25 shots depending on the card as well.

It's also very much card dependent on both depth, and clearing speed.

If the RAW doesn't look as good as the M3, the problem is your conversion.

MistaHaid: They just couldnt stand against Sony. It didnt do even 4K

I'd choose canon's colors, ergonomics, support, service, lenses, etc - over a feature that I don't even want on a stills camera.

What IS your problem?

As explained and what's obvious this is simply a smaller M5 without an EVF, made as small as possible and still keeping direct controls.

How is Canon crippling this camera with respects to the M5?

In reply to:

Quantum Scientist: For about the same price you can get the new Fuji X-T20. Fujifilm quality, EVF, and 4K.

Except canon will at times offer kits with the EVF bundled such as what they did for the M3, and many also have the EVF from the M3.

Even with that, a X system kit would be prohibitively more expensive for me. People tend to forget it seems that the camera body is only one part of the equation.

that how the contraction canikon makes the most sense

Sorry, you are still unreadable.

God knows what point you are actually trying to make - getting insulted because Canon released a camera you don't approve of? Seriously.

How this this crippled with respects to the M5? It's an M5 without the EVF. For those that don't like an EVF. For $200 less than the M5. There are quite a few that don't want a built in EVF. Get. A. Grip.

It's also not a personal insult to suggest things such as readability, and proper sentence structure. Perhaps you should start.

In reply to:

Low Battery: With this camera being so close to the 80D I wonder if Canon will go back to using metal bodies in the XXD series when (If?) they release the 90D to put a bigger gap between the 7XD and XXD lines

the 80D does have a mag alloy body, with a poly exterior.

the rebels typically used poly and steel.

scottcraig: There was absolutely no need for this model. If Canon was so sensitive to its customers, why was this consideration not given before the release of the 80D. IMHO consumers should boycott this model.

What are you going on about? the 80D came out a year ago.

This model is most certainly under the 80D.

Amarillo Toby: It's clear that so many people here blindly buy their gear based on spec sheets and absolutely nothing else. But no spec sheet could ever show how terrible usability, ergonomics, or UIs can be (<cough>Sony<cough>).

Sony users have cried for tri-navi controls for how long since the NEX-7?

M5 and this offer three level of direct controls for operations, not to mention touch and drag AF on the LCD screens that work far better than the Sony's.

That certainly doesn't show up on a spec sheet

Triplet Perar: Canon — Specialising in delivering tech others have developed and marketed 5 years ago. That alone tells how this sorrowful industry works and what users buy in droves. A herd mentality, which Canon masters quite well.

others have mastered a dual pixel sensor? I missed that.

In reply to:

noisephotographer: I think the most interesting option is to use the M6 with the Ef-m 22mm f/2 as a camera that you always have in your pocket. Could be a better option than a Fuji X-70. But they need more small Ef-m lenses (length<3cm, ideally less than 2.5cm). A small wide-angle f/2, a 30mm f/2 and a small short tele, for instance 45mm (just look at the Ef 40mm, length: 2.2cm).
And ideally a camera with two sensors and two lens mounts, so you don't need to change the (very small) lenses all the time.

The M6 with the 18-150, 22 and 11-22 makes a pretty credible and cheap travel camera kit.

It's also one that is hard to replicate in any other manufacturer for a half decent price.

xoio: A GRAND to be forced to wave the cam around in front of your face like a f*cking iphone! For that much dosh, the evf should be a given!!!

wth are you going on about?

This is providing two options. a smaller, no EVF/optional M6 and an EVF based M5. virtually identical otherwise.

Vit Adamek: This looks very promising. I have tried M3 in shop recently and I liked the handling very much. I liked the dedicated exposure compensation dial and the implementation in manual mode with auto iso was the same as on my A7. I wish every mirorrorless had this kind of auto iso + dedicated exposure compensation dial implementation. Makes maintainig you desired shutter speed, aparture and scene brightness a breeze and very convenient.

I think the second dial on the exposure comp will be interesting if it can be re-programmed.

Mike FL: So, EM6 = EM5 - Build in EVF + optional EVF.

EM7 = EM6 +/-?

they'll probably go to using Mark for the 5/6 and keep it like the 5D/6D.

Ever hear of a shift key?

The M5 and M6 serve a market, just because you don't like it - I have news for you, you aren't the microcosm of the entire camera market.

Some actually do not want an EVF, or prefer a detachable EVF. I'm actually one of them. I didn't purchase a M5 because it had the attached EVF. I will most likely purchase the M6. I can use an LCD in the bright sunlight too. It's not that hard.

You also can't put in an EVF into the M3 form factor. For the same reason it's not in an X-A2. You make a small camera with a 3:2 LCD screen, and there's simply not enough room. Simple observation and some thought would have served you well here.

Thinking is hard in here, you may want to try that - and brush up on your writing skills.

Sure if you think 769 and 899 are the same price .. most people do not.

Also the lenses are considerably more expensive in the X mount.

So the entire kit becomes quite alot more money in the short run.

actually there are still a fair amount of non gearheads purchasing both.

Nindy: Another impressive disappointment

actually the DIGIC that does 4k for CINI is not available for camera digic's.. and that one is a hot bugger to run and needs fan cooling..,

can't see that in a DSLR any time soon.
