"The most striking feature of the EOS M5 is its touchscreen interface and how this integrates with its Dual Pixel AF system" -DPR

It's really strange that the Sony a6300 doesn't have a touchscreen.

I'm disappointed that we don't have any wild red fox in the neighborhood. We have lots of yummy wild rabbits that they would enjoy. :-)

Dear Troll @ttran88: I put a :-) at the end my post, because it was obviously intended as a silly joke. Lighten up.

Canon just announced an actual product that has a global shutter:

"The EOS C700 GS PL features a Super 35mm 4K sensor with a global shutter to enable the distortion-free capture of subjects moving at high speeds."

Yeah, right. Canon-Tokyo constantly monitors DPR's home page, and issues press releases based on what it finds there. -lol

livelong: It's too bad this camera has crippled video features, like 1.7X crop, 30/4K, rolling shutter issue, ancient codex...etc. A significant amount of video makers invested in Canon solely for shooting video. They bought all the nice accessories and rigs to build the system around Canon, and look what just happened?

I hope Nikon has its wind sails up, because it can capitalize on Canon's vulnerability right now.

Nikon's DSLR video shortcomings are worse than Canon's. Even Nikon's $6,500 D5 is bad in that area. Of the Nikon D5 DPR writes "In terms of focusing, the autofocus in video mode is still leagues behind Canon's Dual Pixel sensors..." Of the Nikon D500, DPR wrote "Autofocus is contrast-detection-based, and is prone to rapid and drastic attempts to refocus that leads to distracting unprofessional-looking footage."

Competition is good, but on the video front, I don't expect Canon to get any from Nikon.

I was going to buy this camera, but decided to use that money to buy a new car instead. :-)

Of course it's a full-frame lens. That's all that Sony makes. :-)

@abortabort: Other camera companies specifically design some lenses for (only) their APS-C cameras. Sony apparently quit doing that.

W5JCK: "The Canon EOS M10 is the most beginner-friendly camera of that manufacturer's mirrorless family, doing away with many physical controls and embracing touchscreen functionality."

They made it easy ONLY for consumers who shoot in full auto mode. If you want to take FULL advantage of a camera like this, then you need to shoot in full manual mode. Good luck with that. The lack of external controls means that by the time you fish through the Canon maze of menus to properly set up the shot, the thing you wanted to capture is long gone. The old G1 X was a great camera for consumers and prosumers, the M10 not so much. Canon is getting their backsides beaten badly by Sony and other manufacturers, and they deserve the beatings.

According to Japan's former bcnranking web site, the best selling mirrorless camera in Japan was usually the low end Olympus PEN Lite. I suspect that the Canon M10 was designed primarily to compete with that camera, in the Japan/Asia market.
