I still have two of them, although I haven't used them in years, the K1000 and the ME Super.

How *dare* Canon make DSLRs that vastly outsell those live-view-only (mirrorless) cameras. :-)

Not to worry though, Canon mirrorless cameras are #3 or #2 in worldwide mirrorless market share. :-)

I'm not buying an iPhone until it offers 5D photography. :-)

According to some (sexist) camera company commercials, females only take selfies and snapshots of their restaurant dinners.

Canon's 4,000,000 ISO movie camera is an actual shipping product, not just a prototype.

M Chambers: It's a pretty steep price point for Canon trying to attract customers to their mirrorless market.

At the bottom of their mirrorless line, Canon has the US$450 M10.

cosinaphile: idiocy not to have an integrated evf..... canon cant buy a clue ..... but neither can nikon

that how the contraction canikon makes the most sense

If a buyer wants a built-in EVF, Canon offers the M5. If a buyer doesn't want a built-in EVF, Canon offers the M6. Giving buyers a choice is a Good Thing.

I suspect that many people who grew up doing smartphone snapshots don't care about viewfinders. They are used to taking photos without them.

ScottD1964: Really Canon, an 18-55 f4-5.6 is an upgrade? You need to be looking at Fuji's all metal "kit lens" 18-55 f2.8-4 if you're thinking your new plastic lens is an upgrade.

Good grief.

The new Canon kit lens is designed to be "20% smaller than its predecessors", and to be affordable.

The Canon M10 is way less expensive than this camera. :-)

britepixels: Canon just does not get it.
In bright sunlight you just can't see the image on the screen.
They could at least put in a tunnel or a small EVF. I bought the original and it was returned because of the screen issue. The M5 had one and now back to none without a cost.

@britepixels: "New releases should be a step up"

It's just Canon's quirky numbering system. Think of it as an M3 Mark II, and it is a step up.

In reply to:

Tom Caldwell: Just when it seemed that Canon was getting serious with EF-M by releasing the M5 it has gone all "cuddly" again with something that is unlikely to frighten the horses (other brands).

If Panasonic can fit an evf into a GX85 and Sony can too then a clip on evf RF style camera has to be ... well cuddly, and not at least frightening.

In Japan/Asia, "cuddly" sells, in sufficient numbers that other mirrorless camera companies should be frightened of Canon M. And those regions buy more mirrorless cameras than anyone else.

Canon has an innovative idea, the cameras they announce actually ship.

(A Nikon DL reference.)

In reply to:

Mariano Pacifico: Less than a year they released Canon EOS M5 they introduced a headless decapitated M6. They chopped the head off and $200.00 rolled off the body. Which ones I like the best? I'd pick M5 with the head on. A body without the head is kind of weird-looking unless it looks retro-60s.

Perhaps people who grew up using smartphones won't care that a built-in EVF isn't standard equipment on the M6. The body of the M6 doesn't look any weirder than the M-M3 or M10.

ttran88: These are the exact cameras that will send Nikon to its graves sooner than later.

With Nikon 1, Nikon made a huge strategic error in mirrorless sensor size.

In reply to:

bluevaping: Pentamirror, eh no. external EVF, eh no.

Mirrorless cameras don't have either a pentamirror or a pentaprism. If you want a built-in EVF, Canon recommends that you buy the more expensive M5.

It's nice to see Dual Pixel CMOS AF make it down to the Rebel line. DIGIC7 should be a nice enhancement too.

In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: So Canon still can't be bothered to copy the built in EVF of the Sony NEX 7, the Panasonic LX100, the Olympus Pen F, the Leica Q, Fuji XE2s, etc. (And no, I'd not put the Sony RX1RII on that list. But one could include the Sigma SD Quattros.)

Samsung couldn't be bothered either with the otherwise excellent NX500, and then...

If you want a built-in EVF, you can buy the Canon M5. In spite of the model name, the M6 is designed to be cheaper than the M5. On the Canon USA online store, the M5 body is US$980 and the M6 body is $US780.

This is nice for people who don't want an EVF, but external EVFs are an overpriced kludge.

Nice!

It's no wonder that, even in Japan/Asia, DSLRs continue to dominate ILC camera sales. There are some really nice DLSRs out there.

(sarcasm) But what are the DxOMark Sensor Scores of the cameras that took those photos. That's the important thing.
