Zdman: Sorry Barney but you're biased articles only seek to divide the community and sew hate in the DP community. Other sites just don't do this and I cannot see what you're hoping to accomplish besides dissing Canon. Canon has made sound business decisions that have seen them remain profitable in tough times (those great innovations all came at boom times). Sony took some risks as did Samsung. Samsung failed and Sony is suceeding for now (good for them and me because I own one). You should be celebrating the fact that Canon is getting it right now. In time with probably better and almost certainly cheaper lenses (Sony cannot compete long term on that front) it will introduce mirrorless to the masses (not just enthusiasts). Your dissapointment of a camera is most likely the start of Sony exiting the market which is probably what you're actually dissapointed about.

When I was in grade school they never taught us to sew hate, just embroider flowers and write our names. Maybe sew a purse or two...

yellodog: The posted samples look awful. Could be down to poor kit lens and bad NR but still.

It's certainly not fair on the kit lens but the sensor should still perform and I just can't see that the images are better than what most would expect from their mobile phone now a days.

Everything is relative;

Maybe it's just the noise distracting me, I just don't think it looks good.

I'm seeing very poor resolution and a lot of noise which could theoretically be down to underexposure, too slow shutter speed and a useless kit lens, but until I see otherwise it doesn't look promising.

The edited from RAW do look a bit sharper but a lot noisier and there is a lot of softness around the edges. But I'll reserve judgement till I've seen shots from people with better lenses and more time to do it right (on Flickr maybe). The samples for the Olympus ED 25mm F1.2 Pro lens almost look like they're taken on an FF sensor by comparison.

Peter G: On the camera, Better late than never.

But IMO, lacking a truly desirable lens holds it back.

I would want something like the EF-S, 15-85 F3.5-5.6 or the 17-55 F2.8.

Both seem MUCH better than the general wide to short tele lenses available in EF-M.

I don't care how good the camera is, if it doesn't have a lens I want to use most of the time.

Also, the headline is a bit more like clickbait than usual for DPR.

The whole point of a mirrorless camera is to get a smaller package. If you use it with an adapter + a EF-S or EF lens then you're back where you started, for all intents and purposes. Why bother?

Kookie B: All,

Click on the image of the M6, click again for full-size, then take a close look at the aperture opening. Does anyone else see what I do? An oddly misshapen opening that can't be by design. Strange that they would use an image with such an obvious anomaly for the roll out.

Thoughts?

Ed B.

That's typical Russian QC. No two lenses are alike.

Daxs: Looks like people don't care about phone, most important is camera! LoL
For me, phone is phone with camera!
If you really interested in pictures you not gonna fight about stupid phone camera!

And of course the ability to zoom and still render a clean image.

@Daxs The whole point of PureView is not that it's 20mp but that the 20 mp can be reduced to a smaller picture with no noise which can make a big difference if you are shooting in poor light. Noticable even to friends who don't care about photography.

JDThomas: Instead of these over-priced "photography" bags I usually buy tactical military bags designed for weapons. They are highly padded, ultra-durable, and about 1/3 of the price that these photo bag companies charge.

I could buy these in bulk sell them at twice the price and still come in way under what these companies charge for a product of lesser quality.

Besides, who wants to look like a "tactical hipster"? ;)
