Time and again I see people with an SLR using the rear display rather than the viewfinder to take photos...
All non-techies who use smartphones cameras and those who before used a compact camera don't care about viewfinders. There are a lots of people out there who do not care about viewfinders. This camera is aimed at them and those who want to move beyond taking snapshots with a fixed focal lens.

sh10453: How are the results of the M series using EF "L" lenses (with an adapter)?
Anyone is doing that?

I'm interested in getting the body only when this one comes out.

Focus aquisition speed depends somewhat on the lens. Original M performance was poor but improved to acceptable with firmware update. Performance with DPAF sensors of M5, M6 is excellent.

Great stuff!

It ain't what you got but what you do with it :-)

DualSystemGuy: Am I missing something or does this not even have a P, AV, TV, M dial?

@DualSystemGuy: the point of having a touchscreen is to avoid having having lots of dedicated dials, buttons and knobs which make assembling the camera more costly and like most things mechanical can easily break unless they are engineered for heavy usage or to last 20years+. Like on your smartphone, the screen is permanently on to allow operation of the device and Canon has one of the best touch user interface on the market.

You are indeed missing something. PASM modes are available and will be selectable via the touchscreen like on the M2, M10, etc as well as by turning the dial ring around the shutter release button.

It ain't what you got it's the way that you use it... ;-)

Mariano Pacifico: Why bother with M6 or M5 when you can get a Canon APS-C for the same price with exemplary lenses?

M5 and M6 are APS-C without the bulk of the DSLR.

One lens: 35mm,... two bodies: APS-C and FF.

Great shot Barney!

tallenvt: Help me out here, please. I have good Canon lenses and was hoping to cut down on size and weight by buying a mirrorless Canon, when the company released a decent one. I assumed [stupidly, i now see] that I would be able to use my Canon L lenses on a mirrorless Canon. From what i now read, I will need an adapter. So, do i actually get much of a size/weight advantage over say the 80D? And do i loose autofocus or other performance qualities when I use adapted L lenses with the M5. I REALLY dont want to have to buy 2 sets of lenses.

The adapter is necessary because the point of mirrorless is to reduce the size of the camera body. The side effect of this is that the lenses can be placed a lot closer to the sensor. However the EF lenses are designed for DSLRs where they are much further away from the sensor.

Weight comparison
M5 + ef-m ef adapter + ef 16-35 f4 L is = 1151g
6300 + zeiss 16-35 f4 = 921g

So yes there is a difference, but let's be honest, once you start to look at bright lenses mirrorless is not light either.

Chris2210: Build quality is "top notch" really? - did I misread your spec sheet earlier that mentioned plastic construction and no weather sealing? Which other camera on the market at this price point doesn't at least have an alloy chassis or weather resistance?

There are things to like about this camera, but there's an awful lot more that's underwhelming [or late to market] for something that isn't entry-level priced. Your breakdown read like it could have been supplied by Canon. I don't normally think there's any sort of bias on this site, so I find this a little bit concerning...

Spec sheet says that the body is made of metal.

Essentially this is an 80D with half of the bulk and weight: 40% less! I was thinking of getting another lighter set-up from Fuji or Panasonic for travelling light, but with the adapter I should be able to use all of my EF lenses with minimal performance penalties...

Dames01: "Unfortunately, the ring around the lens barrel of the DL24-85 is not customizable (same goes for the other DL's). It can only be used for manual focusing."

That is really disappointing... :-( would have been nice to be able to use to set the Aperture, Shutter speed, etc.

@otzurert: as stated in the product announcement "Macro shooters can also take advantage of focus peaking and bracketing as well as manual priority AF."

@papa natas: I think you have misunderstood my comment.

AF is a wonderful thing, and the only time I use MF is for macro work, which is why I think it is a shame that the ring on the lens cannot be assigned to another function, depending on the shooting mode, or customised by the user like on the Canon GX series.
