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.

lol101: Any idea of VF magnification?

EVF magnification is 0.62.

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.

Love the design... very Canon like :-) but more polished, and the specs tick a lot of boxes too.

Nice to be able to add an external EVF.

Looking forward to see some image samples.

Vincent DP: When I look at this picture I see people illegally crossing a state border (there is no war in Serbia or Hungary, so no need to flee through barbed wire) and endangering the health of a baby, part of a mass invasion jeopardizing the future of Europe.

It is narrow minded people like Vincent DP who are jeopardising the future of Europe.

SupremeWideAngle: Canon did a very big mistake to bottom-hinged the monitor, useless for macro and many other photography situations !!! Try again Canon, you are on your way down !

The tilt options are: 180° up and 45° down. So in fact there are two hinges, like the screen on the G1X mkII.

So the screen is macro, concert and selfie friendly :-)

uzzy88: What about G1x Mark II?

Great camera, but the RAW shooting rate is a bit low and focus is also sometimes diffidult in poor lighting conditions. It is also frustrating that the remote shooting do not allow the user to select the focus point remotely.

Link | Posted on Feb 18, 2016 at 13:25 UTC

If Canon puts these improvements into the G1X mk III, it will be the best walkaround camera...

lensberg: Why couldn't they include 4K ... ??!! They introduce Digic 7 to the world in this cheesy camera... and leave out one crucial element that could potentially tip the scales in their favor...

Best to stick with Sony's RX100 series in this segment... Great IQ (with mark IV ) and outstanding video specs... They're always on top of their game here...

They didn't include 4K video because people are buying their cameras even though they don't have 4K video!

On article 1.4 and More: Canon EF 35mm F1.4L II comparison (243 comments in total)

There is no doubt that the new Canon lens is better optically than its predecessor or the sigma lens. As to whether the difference will be significant to 99% of the people who use a 35mm lens... Of course NOT! But this is irrelevant. It is aimed at those who care about getting the sharpest results at any aperture.
