In reply to:

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).

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:)

In reply to:

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.

KrisAK: Great, but I really need a camera with a built in viewfinder.
Any chance, Canon?

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

villagranvicent: Finally somebody releases an interesting affordable lens. If this performs in the same fashion as my trusty 40mm f2.8, I could even get a nice M3 for it. Good for Canon!

This is another great lens for M system.

In reply to:

Sotomayor: Nice little feature...I'm sure many other manufacturers will follow suit

@BarnET

Every pragmatic M shooter already has access to tons of Canon and third party glass (include macro lenses) via adapter. But how do you know this if you are not one of us:))

Is it same idea as Lensbaby? OK, maybe different idea, but same effect:)

Mark300: I am afraid we will say "good bye" to Cannon and Nikon in few years.
In Germany in 2015 Sony sold more A7 lines cameras than C+N together. Next move from Sony side should be sell cheap adapter from C and N lenses to Sony FE. Thanks to that they may get C & N users who look for smaler , well equipped body.
In future that people switch to Sony lenses and ....

Wake up Canon.

nice science fiction:) it's time to wake up for you.

Thsoft: No 4K. Very Disappointed

I'm very interested to know what you planning to film with this small camera in 4K resolution? seriously! Do you really planning to use it, or just trolling every new camera?

Hugo808: Had a good look for a replacement for my aging Lumix compact and decided a mirrorless would be better than spending all that money on a current high-end pocketable camera like the Sony RX100's as I don't care if it doesn't fit in my pocket...

I tried them all and liked the EOS M3 for it's build quality but not for it's extreme slowness. And now I've had a good look at the pictures I'm glad I went for the bottom of the range Fuji which has amazing IQ and is much lighter - not to mention cheaper - than the Canon.

This is very poor decision to build yours opinion on DPReview sloppy and misleading gallery.
here is some real-life samples: https://www.flickr.com/groups/canon-eos-m3-group/pool/

In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: It's really odd that almost all pictures are with the kit lens or UWA zoom. The only pictures taken with a prime lens (the 22mm F2.0) are at 3200 ISO and above.

Please post a few picts with the 22mm under normal conditions at reasonable ISO. That lens is really popular with the EOS-M crowd, and shots with it would be most helpful for folks considering upgrading.

And while you are at it throw in a few picts with decent EF or EF-S canon glass using the adapter?

Thanks!

ryan2007: I would like to know the experience of the photographer taking the sample galleries. It is either the camera or photographer, but the results are just not good enough to say save your $1,000. If anyone should be annoyed are is the manufacture themselves if this is not a true representation of any cameras ability.

Visit EOS-M forum, see some real photos and read about real–life experiences. These samples are part of non–funny joke:(

Thank you Apple! Finally I can use Photos with my Canon EOS-M3

Hinder: Crap, still no viewfinder?!!!! No thank you. How do you hold it still at 600mm? An add on VF? Might as well carry my SL1 . I really wanted to like it but it's just another Canon fail. :(

I'm pretty sure you will keep it on all the time.
I bet you never hold one in your hand — very nice thing, it also has variable angle, which is very useful feature. I wasn't expect to like it so much on my EOS-M3, but I was wrong.

you know about external EVF, right? it's actually very good, much better than most of build-in competitors.

Craig from Nevada: $399 by Xmas.

They will not be able to move it at that price.

you will be surprised:) it will drop a little bit, but nothing serious. most likely it will bring prices of compacts super-zooms with small sensors down.

No EOS-M3 support! WTF?
