In reply to:

woerd: This sure will be a very good drsl body. Unfortunately the camera concept with mirror is becoming old fashion and chunky. I owned a number of full frame drsl bodies from Canon but i changed to Sony (A7RII) and i never wanna go back.
My opinion: unless you are an action shooter you better choose the Sony for it's new technologies and image quality.

His brand is Nikon, but six of his reasons for not going mirrorless would also apply to Canon.

Dual is Cool!

(Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Dual Pixel RAW)

Funkyd3121: So, the Canon G7XII gets a Digic 7 processor & the New 5DIV gets Digic 6+ - Huh??

The EOS 5D Mark III has DIGIC 5+. The EOS 5D Mark IV has DIGIC 6+. Perhaps DIGIC 7 is optimized for 1" compacts, and doesn't work with DSLRs.

On YouTube, see the music video "Jake Bugg - Lightning Bolt - Official Video". :-)

Futurists promised us flying cars, but all we got was drones. :-)

New and degraded! Now, with fewer features!

ahw82: I love the picture of the corgi. Clearly, the least artistic composition of all the photos in the gallery--you can tell the photographer was wandering Pike Place Market and took the shot on autopilot. "Look, a corgi!" And it was still good enough to include in the gallery. Proving that any photo with a corgi in it is a great photo.

I'm not a fan of the "short legs thing", but Corgis have really cute faces.

Neither the Nikon D3400 nor the Canon (USA name) T6 have self-cleaning sensors. I realize that they want to keep cost and price down, but that seems to be a step too far.

In reply to:

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.

Canon makes their own APS-C sensors.

In reply to:

brownie314: It is inexplicable why canon would not put the dual pixel AF in arguably the only ILC they have that REALLY needs it. Maybe they could not adapt the sensor to the EOS-M lenses wrt the focus mechanism? I don't know. They should have tried harder. But on the plus side - I will pick up an M3 body with kit lens for less than $300, I am sure, within a few months.

In 2014, Canon stated that Dual Pixel CMOS AF was expensive to manufacture. Hopefully, they will find a way to bring costs down.

I think the Nikon D3X00 series is the only DSLR made that doesn't have Automatic Exposure Bracketing. Even my 2003 Canon G5 compact camera had AEB.

Sannaborjeson: It's not bad. But I would assume Canon is going to have hard times trying to sell it.

@virtualreality: I don't know the percentages, but for interchangeable lens cameras, Canon projects sales of "5.5 million units, which is in line with last year". (Source: Canon's most recent financial documents.)

Canon's most recent financial documents show their current target market:

"For mirrorless cameras, we have expanded unit sales, particularly in Asia, running advertising campaigns targeting young people and females."

Canon introduced the first M in 2012, and they have yet to actually try to make a competitive mirrorless camera.

Canon has the technology, they just haven't used it.

sportyaccordy: This does not bode well for the rumored Canon FF MILC that's supposed to debut at Photokina....

I think the Canon FF MILC rumor was just wishful thinking. Among other things, APS-C sensor size is where the huge sales volume is.

The Nikon DL line got an award for "Most Delayed Camera".

(It was announced in February, delayed in April, and there is still no shipping date for it.)

PanchoVilla: The EOS M3 is an A6300 killer. You can even adapt Canon EF lenses. The sleeping giant has woken up!

BTW - Portland, Oregon looks great in these photos, I totally get that Portlandia vibe!

Unlike the A6300, you can't fry eggs on the M3. :-) (overheating issue reference)

It sounds like the M3 could use better AF speed. It expensive to manufacture, but it would be nice if the M4 had Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF.
