skanter: "I'm not a huge proponent of candid portraiture,"

Why not? Candids are often a lot more interesting and authentic than studio set-up portraits. He is obviously not a "proponent" of the entire genre of street photography.

" but the subtle click of the M10's shutter means that even for casual snapshots of friends and family, the whole process of taking someone's picture is less confrontational than it might be with a larger and louder camera."

My under $1000 Sony has a completely silent shutter; not a great reason for buying a $6500 Leica. And, I don't have to put black tape on it. :-)

but you should

mbot: Okay, let me counsel you fiscal strategy... for the same money get a Canon 200D and an LG V30 smartphone, and you'll get far better photos, plus a smartphone with an 'audiophile' Sabre DAC & LG OLED screen Lol

sure, but try stuffin a 200d down your pants in a bad neighborhood and do the walk

stratplaya: If you buy it, don't drop it. Tests show the glass breaks in a 6 foot drop making it unusable. Needless to say, repairs will be Xpensive.

try that 6' drop with a d850, yeah, doit

Rodenmg: Much better than the Lieca samples. But still a novelty more than anything else. Why anyone would spend so much money on what is basically a horrible lens is beyond me.

it's beyond you

Sean65: Such a weird bunch on here wishing to see the death of one of the Great Grandfathers of photography. In musical circles, players and fans treat the old blues greats with reverence and respect. Can't ever imagine blues fans wishing all the early pioneers to be dead and gone just because some new wiz kid is on the scene.

apples & oranges

PhotoKhan: Again the "lack of lenses" thing...

People continuously fail to understand that, contrary to other brands who push mirrorless as a primary line (...sometimes, even the only ILC offer, bar medium format...) Canon's EOS line serve 2 specific purposes that complement each other.

1. Entry level ILC format for casual users (there's a reason why all those women appear in the adds, casually getting M-cameras out of purses).

2. A complementary piece of the a much larger, full-encompassing EOS system.

Under these 2 perspectives, the current lens offer is quite rational.

Soon, a third vector will be introduced and THEN you can complain about whatever you might need and they fail to offer.

Meanwhile, if your needs encompass a full array of lenses for a mirrorless, look elsewhere.

There are excellent offers out there.

"Rebel", quite a silly name as well.
