n3eg: This just makes me more convinced that micro four thirds was the correct way to go.

"provide much smaller lenses than apsc or ff with only a slight hit in image quality "

Have u notice all recent MFT camera and lens form both Olympus and Panasonic is both heavy and expensive

Ridiculous! the Chinese company Laowa 7.5mm F2 MF lens is the correct direction they should take
Again Chinese company Xiaomi would announce cheap MFT camera

Maybe Chinese company would rescue MFT, strange world

MFT recent trend of PRO level weight and price in both lens and camera is a dead end
sure doom the system unless they reverse this as soon as possible
As of now, MFT don't look good

MFT sensor about same as 1 inch IQ but price and weight of PRO system?
Really, are the management dreaming or on drugs?

Wake up please before too late

same price A6300 vs M5 (4k, weather seal ,better Sony sensor )
for now A6300 is a smarter buy

But I really hope m5 sell well and Sony will put more effort into APS-C
and more important APS-C lens which they seem to have abandon

With all the hype around FE, I bet Sony still make most money from APS-C
no new APS-C lens is because of no competition

Sony even admit why they delay release A6300 is in their words "no real competition exist"
That is no good for any one. I am a sensible fanboy

Actually if Canon can provide 15mm equivalent ultra wide lens, 4k
I will jump ship in the future but not now
Mindelessly defend a brand is not a sign of any mature person

For example BS like no 4k, 1080p is good
if u really wish, can u shoot 1080p in A6300?
Also well known fact if u covert 4k video to 1080p quality would be much better

so no 4k and no weather seal but at A6300 price can not put a good spin on it except by mindless fanboy
M5 touchscreen indeed useful, no argument

How come?
I am sure many serious photographers would at least want APS-C size sensor

The recent trend of MFT going pro
with pro weight and price (both camera and lens) but much smaller sensor has left me lost confidence in MFT

MFT should be like early days with pancake lens, lightweight and reasonable priced camera like GF or GM

now go PRO !!
sure PRO weight and price but I doubt PRO IQ with small sensor

not for me
By the way I still use pancake 35-100 on my GM1 but they killed the GM line.

I am very disappointed in the direction MFT going
look at the new G80 cor GX85 weight and the weight of Olympus pro lens.
If I can stand that kind of weight I would not use MFT. Don't even mention price (again PRO but worth it?)

Fuji X-A3 and Sony A5100 both about 300 gram but with APS-C sensor.
Very strange, the market that should be MFT is now given up by them and is pick up by APS-C camera

Strange, indeed

Any good comparison of dual pixel with A6300 AF in youtube or elsewhere?
Which is superior in terms of speed and accruacy ?

Link | Posted on Sep 18, 2016 at 19:56 UTC as 218th comment

One thing for sure
This would shake up mirrorless market in a big way

whether positive or negative remain to be seen

Canon serious entry into mirrorless cannot be take lightly from an industry standpoint

Ebrahim Saadawi: what THE H#+ ?!! Canons makes THIS and it's still all trolling and hatd?! This dimply proves to me the intentention and qualityof DP commenters. I'll Just read the reviews from now on thank you!!

1- When did almost everybody on Dpreview shifr career for cinematography/video from photography whish is always been 99% of users!

I AM a cinematographer/director, and shooting in 4K resolution vs good 1080p resolution is minimal and I only see it in my colourist's room (a high end step no onr on dpreviiew will never exerience except a couple maybe). 4K allows cropping but thus enlarges noise, and it shows up only on thestrical projections, PLUS SONY CAN"T DO IT ON THE RIVAL OF THE M5!! Unless you call a burst then keep it cool is an option. It's CLEARLY a heat issue and Canon and Sony technology is NOT capable of, getting a 4k stream from a palm size ap-c camera. Why do you think all 4K cine camera have fans that shut when recording? Please don't bi#* about not having 4K like the a6300 because it doesn't have usable 4K. And the 1080p of the 80D is what we should be discussing, amateurs talk K numbers, knowledgable people discuss 1080p resolving power, aliasing, skin tones, lowlight performance, lens correction, stabilization quality, etc. So no 4K no video shooting is amature approach.

2- When again did everybody on dpreview beame professional videographers wearinh calibrated headphones and hooking expensive shotgun micriphones?! BTW we all use exrenal audio recoders becsuse the preamps are bad on all these caneras,

It seems ti be just a hunt for a little thing it doesn't do and destroy the camera for it!

For video the M5 offers solid Full HD video (current highest standard for web and televisions), up to 60p (with no drop in quality or crops as Sony's do), has a microphone input, has DPAF that can magically focus a s35 sensor without a focus puller. A grear EVF, peaking for old glass.

Complete support for vintage maual focus glass we love as cine makers: 5 AXIS Image stabilization (it's digital but wait and be surprised how it perform like IBIS), EVF and Peaking for focusing, lens mount that can take all of them, speedbooster support (FF M5).

And all those amazing canon optics with DPAF.

-For phitography, I can't see one flaw. Res, DR, raw, speed, ergo, buttons, AF, what's missing? maybe dual card slots and faster burst rate? The former is indeed relaxing in weddings but the later it's not a sports camera. For sports, spend 400$ more and get a 7D II if 7fps doesnlt do it. Also has dual slots. Big camera though and so can take LOOOTSSS of pictures like a jetfighter goingb through a sound barrier. FAST!

Anyone who have use Panasonic 4k photo mode for 8 megapixel picture screen grab would not say 4k useless

extremely useful just for this alone.
I am talking picture not video taking

Daft Punk: This is the most interesting camera from Canon for a long, long time.

This camera is potentially much, much more important that the 5D4.

It is the first Canon camera I can actually see me owning for quite a while.

The 5D4 offers nothing to tempt a D810 user. But this mirrorless camera offers real benefits over a Sony A6300.

I am tempted.

real benefit over A6300
seem the reverse is true

heavier but no 4k, no weather sealing

yes maybe one benefit, have a touch screen
no others benefit i can think of

Joe Ogiba: It's funny how Canon fanboys say 1080p is the standard not 4K. Right, 2mp is so much better than 8mp. Every major smartphone shoots 4K UHD along with a myriad of Sony and Panasonic cameras shoot 4K.

Three year old 4K UHD video test of the Samsung Note 3 :

$299 OnePlus One DCI 24 FPS 4K Cinematic Video Samples (4096X2160) from June 2014:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6y4GvxAHFxU

at this price and in 2016 no 4k is unfogivable
this is basically same as A6000 but almost double the price

unless a crazy Canon fanboy can't justify the price
A6300 price but without 4k , without weather sealing
must be others i can't think of

if this sell well, I am really amazed at the power of Canon name and marketing power

In reply to:

PhotoKhan: "The EF-M lens lineup (now augmented by an 18-150 F3.5-6.3 IS STM) isn't exactly over-flowing the lenses to suit an enthusiast audience. And asking people to invest in a small camera with the expectation that they'll use larger EF and EF-S lenses doesn't sound like the easiest sell."

...and, yet, the system is selling quite well, already being the third most sold mirrorless line and, it seems, already targeting 2nd place this year (...something this camera will definitely help...)

When you guys finally realize that the "M" line is not a mirroless line, per se, but rather an extension of the EOS system that just so happens to be in the mirrorless format, then you'll understand why such a "poor", lens-challenged system sells so well.

" third most sold mirrorless line and, it seems, already targeting 2nd place this year"

all because of budget price, at this premium price would it sell well is another story

Actually I doubt it but I can be wrong

Interesting what is camera is for
definitely too expensive for the public
for photographer will it attract them with the limited lens lineup, no 4k, no weather seal...etc

really curious at this high price (almost double the price of A6000) would it sell well?

A6300 at least got high end features like 4k and weather seal to justify the price
and although many attack the lens rangge still has more native option and better 3rd party support

Jefftan: if no need for sports hooting so no fast AF needed
could $600 Fuji X-A3 with kit lens be a better buy?

at least the Fuji kit lens is better
if Fuji lens lineup better is subjective but it definitely have many more lens option than EF-M

"B&H lists 22 lenses for EOS that are under $200"

u include EF and EF-S lens?
one must consider X-A3 16-50mm lens pretty good and come with the camera. For most don't even have to buy more lens

Emadn13: it's so bad and so expensive with this options against rivals,you compare it with a6300?really? it's not even close to a6000 with 500$ price
canon always use smaller apsc sensors than others,focus points are less than a6000,a6300 425 focus points would destroy this cam
and worst batterylife,and it's too big almost bigger than sony FF mirrorless cameras

"The Canon Dual Pixel has around 20 million focus points as it can use every pixel for focusing and it's using around 80% of the 24 million the sensor has."

Is there anywhere compare C-AF with EOS-80D and A6300 and show 80D really superior?
I don't know, sounds good in theory but is it really so in real world use?

"or worse switch to single point AF, focus and recompose"

seriously what's wrong with that. This is how many professional photographer do and is the easiest way to control where u want to exactly focus

Sure it is not as easy as tapping on a touchscreen but it is how to workaround in A6300 and not really a big deal

comparable only to A6000 not A6300 for lack of 4k
The $400 or so premium is the price u paid for the Canon name

come one, u think have a camera with "Canon" on it don't cost u some money?

after all, like it all not, many still associate Canon with professional and who know whatelse

image, brand name all cost you money. So paid $400 over A6000 if u think it is worth it
don't paid if like me don't care (of course I consider myself knowledgeable on camera and not someone on the street)

Sept 2016 is a big day for mirrorless people like me who will never buy a DSLR

Now Canon is really "in" mirrorless
How will this affect the camera market and how will this affect marginal camera company is interesting

Just a matter of time Nikon would also join (Nikon 1 don't count, 1 inch sensor without a fast lens, wrong concept from start)

Hope all the camera maker can still be there and no one forced to drop out like Samsung
