Mateus1: Looks much better then Fuji 23/2 that is very soft at portrait distance at f/2 presented here and actually it's 21mm fl (so not classic 35mm in FF). If Canon would bring also 15/2, 34/2 and 54/2 (I mean 24/50/85mm FF eqivalents) + improving M camera with better control (more dialls ), I would consider it. With current offer, M looks very poor compared to all competition.

But I lost trust to Canon a few years ago, after loved 5D mkI.
So this is a naive dream only.

More, more dials! .... LOL https://youtu.be/t_l0lFxFF7I?t=2m

vermaden: A lot of people bash Sony for how 'not well' it works with Canon or Nikon lenses.

Lets now check how Nikon and Canon bodies do with Sony lenses, shall we?

:)) I know the answer, it was less of the question — more of a statement:))

@vermaden You are totally missing the point of using the lens outside of the system (I'm not talking about Sigma/Tamron/Tokina etc.). You are picking this lens and adapting it to your camera (of any brand) if:
1) You already have it:)
2) This is a unique lens that simply not exist for your system.
3) This solution is suitable better for your budget, goal, creative idea, etc.
I'm not familiar with Sony line–up, only heard rumors and forum talk, but please enlight me if there is such a unique lens from Sony, that I would want to use on my Canon/or other brand cameras.

keeponkeepingon: Is this identical (optically) to the EF-M version?

As an eos-m owner my biggest question will be to use native or adapted.

Adapted gives me greater flexibility but a little bigger size. If optically they are identical I'd go with the adapted version.

EF-M lens is 28mm f/3.5 with super macro mode. 2 different lenses.

tangbunna: Sigma 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 AF APO DG OS HSM Telephoto Zoom Lens
for Canon Digital SLR Cameras
$499.00

You can't even compare this 2 lenses — new generation of Sigma lenses (C and A) are awesome. Old lens is very soft at 400.

User8601578383: I like this camera. But there are no lenses. They released camera for enthusiasts and lenses for begginers. This wont work. I own Olympus EM5 mark II and 45/1.8, 75/1.8, 35-100/2.8, 12-35/2.8, 9-18/4-5.6. Canon is the same class camera, but I really dont want to shoot portraits with 18-150/5.6 instead of 75/1.8.

@Thomas Kachadurian I'm using EF lenses on my M and M3 and really enjoy it. And believe me I'm not alone:)

You are missing the point — Canon's PRO lens line is EF "L" collection, which fits perfectly with adapter. Same AF, IS and functionality. Canon don't need to rush and duplicate entire line–up of fast expensive lenses in miniature. EF-M mount has they own jewels: 22mm, 11-22, 28 macro. I believe it will be more lenses in the future, but if you need a lens right now — I believe Canon, Sigma, Tamron, Samyang and many others has enough offerings in EF/EFS catalogs.

Nobby2016: i will buy this.

if only to to get rid of the awfully slow third party EF adapters for my sony A6000.

even the 500 euro metabones cripple AF speed.

i have a A6000 and 20000+ euro worth of canon lenses.
all EF adapters i have tested on the sony suck.

also the ergonomics of the canon (i know unimportant for the gear kids here) look much better.

when it drops to 899 euro i buy.

my ride with the sony A6000 was a nice one, but it´s overhyped by sony fanboys.
i bought it as travel camera and only added the 55-210mm lens to the kit over the years. the eos-m version of the 55-200mm is actually smaller than the sony.

all i want from a mirrorless is a bit smaller formfactor while having good ergonomics.
the M5 seems to offer that.

the 80D sensor in the M5 is great and the touchscreen looks like an amazing tool.
again you basement photogs... out in the field it´s about ergonomics. :-)

i could not care less about video.
full HD is fine for me. especially with the awesome DPAF.

With both M and M3 you can use all Canon lenses and 3rd party lenses with EF-EFS mount. Adapter has no glass, just a set of contacts. I hope M5 will be only improvement with faster focus speed and DPAF.

Helen73: How can there be no integrated EVF, it makes no sense. Such a great camera wasted...

What is wrong with attached EVF? You attach it when you need it, and it's very good EVF, btw. I got it virtually free with purchasing M3 from Japan, also B&H has similar deal now.

In reply to:

Roshni: One thing to note about battery life - the batteries are inexpensive and can be changed in a few moments. My M2 with a wad of spare batteries for a mad day or two day still weighs in at less than most of the competition with just one and I only have to hold the camera up with one of them.
As for IQ and dynamic range - unless like me you actually need to extract data from images for scientific analysis - photography is an art and too much of these takes away from that process.

There is no fully encoded third party battery for EOS-M3 for now, only originals and they are expensive. M/M2 is a different story. But also M3 battery is much better than form original M. I'm getting close to 450-500 shots on one battery (with image preview turned off).

In reply to:

Tremint: I disagree with the battery life. I think it has excellent battery life

I agree. Original M had much shorter battery life — around 300 shots per charge.
M3 doing 500 shots easily with image preview turned off.

Ignat Solovey: The thing is, EOS M3 is not mirrorless 760D. It is mirrorless 700D in everything but sensor itself (which is suspected of Sony origin, but pointlessly, I think). Hence all the outdatedness.

This is a Canon sensor, stop imagine things:)

PhotoKhan: Would it be possible, just for once, to have a Canon product review that does not evoke or "shouts-out" to other products from other brands?

In this particular case...you do understand that the incorporated LEDs make this an unique product, making all "shout-outs" and cross-references non-applicable, right?

Typical DPR:(( also such a questionable results.

Any chance, Canon?

M3 has a great EVF. I don't really understand why people asking build-in EVF in such a small body?
