Checked the site and the pictures. Some looked bad both "before" and "after". And tragically, the "before" picture looked in some cases better than the "after" picture.

I have very good experience with Fomapan 200 and Fomadol R09 Developer. Technical specs: http://www.foma.cz/en/fomapan-200
Also, a bunch of 10 rolls, each 36 frames, is less than 30 €, making it less than 3 € per roll (link: https://fomaobchod.cz/cernobilenegativnifilmy/perfofilmy/fomapanset-perfo/fomapan200135-36-set10kszacenu9ks%5B11012%5D?ItemIdx=3).
But I shoot digital nowdays. Maybe one day I will grab my old Praktica and shoot some negative film again...

vFunct: lol digital image sensors don't accept apertures larger than F/1.2

Actually f1.8 (tested on EOS 60D)

sop51: I don't see a cat on the list.

The cat upgrade can be picked up for free in your local animal shelter. Most photographers already have a cat and the cat is the reasony why they buy the camera in the first place.

Phone app? Not for me, thank you. What for???

Remote control or cable releas? No, ML firmware and you can set whatever time you want.

Card reader? Again, why? To get a mess in filenames? I prefer to download from camera and let them name YYYY_MM_DD_####.

The straps that come with cameras are good enough. If you need something better, get one, but it is not what you need.

A microphone? Well, if you are into movies, maybe. I use my cameras to take stills. Movies are, at least in the case of the EOS 60D, not really good. Artifacts, low resolution, rolling shutter, non existing AF. And mostly - why? I do not want to spend five times as much editing videos compared to stills.

What I miss is a lens hood, as most lenses come without hoods. Also a polarizer might be useful.

dopravopat: Slow, crappy lenses on a "premium" EOS M5. When will Canon offer something like the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 or 50-100 f1.8? Oh wait, they will charge abnormal prices for them anyway, why bother?

Tonkotsu Ramen:
Sigma is no longer an outsider, low quality 3rd party lens maker, but a top of the line manufacturer. What Canon should do is open the EOS M mount for everybody, give detailed specs of it and the communication protocols.

mosc:
I hope somebody will test how the two Sigmas I mentioned perform with the adapter on the EOS M5, as this is something I am really interested in.

Digimat: so mr. canon, all we need now is a snappy compact range of 15mm 1.8, 22mm 1.8, 33mm 1,8 and 52mm 1.8 prime lenses. dont take another 4 years please.

I just want Sigma to make the 8-16, 18-35 and 50-100 with EOS M mount....

"So, about those lenses..."

Please test how the camera performs with the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 and 50-100 f1.8 (via adapter). How they focus in stills mode, if the stated "Image stabilization: Sensor-shift" works and how effective it is. I would really appreciate this, thanks.

dopravopat: If the camera works well with my Sigma 18-35 f1.8 and 50-100 f1.8 lenses via the adapter, including image stabilization using sensor-shift only, Canon has a buyer. Hopefully the Sigma 8-16 will work as well. The specs of the M5 are fine. ML would be nice too, as it provides useful still image features as well. I do not intend to shoot video. I am curious how the M5 will perform and how it handles 3rd party lenses.

Dpreview should correct their statement "Image stabilization: Sensor-shift" then.

dopravopat: Finally a really useless 4K video, when you can capture it only with a 1.64 crop factor. So if you want wide angle 4K video, you must attach the APS-C Sigma 8-16 on the EOS 5D Mk IV. Also, be prepared to shoot just 15 minutes on a single 64 GB CF card.

Yes, the 5 D Mk IV is a decent camera. You know what it would need to make it a great camera? Put a SONY sensor in it.

@Nobby2016

Pat yourself on the back for calling me an imbecile troll from the sony camp. Have you even checked my gear list? What I wrote is the result of the performance of Canon sensors in the last years and how they lack behind the competition.

Link | Posted on Aug 25, 2016 at 07:57 UTC

Neat for cell phones. Probably not for enthusiasts who shoot RAW.

dopravopat: My father asked me to pick a good compact camera for him. I briefly considered the EOS M3. But ultimately discarded the idea, mainly because of the poor performance and very limited and slow lens line-up. Really, there is no decently fast workaround zoom. After doing some research I picked the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100. A camera introduced in 2014 and it outperforms the EOS M3 in EVERY ASPECT, except lenses. This is something Canon should really think about. The video quality they offer is appalling. The sensor is mediocre at best and AF performance weak. I much rather sacrifice the built-in crappy flash for a built-in EVF. I shot 2000 pictures and took a 6 minute long 4K video with the LX100 yesterday at a concert with one battery, shooting mostly ISO 400, 800 and 1600 as the sun set and stage lights became the only source of lighting. The quality of the files surprised me. If a compact camera from 2014 does better than the EOS M3, it does not deserve 75%. I would give less than 50%.

A fixed f2 35 mm eq. lens vs. a f1.7 - f2.8 24-75 mm eq. lens. No EVF aside from the expensive extra one. The lens adapter for 80 bucks? Is Canon f*cking kidding me, for that little peace of tube? What the EOS M3 system badly needs is much better lenses, possibly 3rd party - Canon should share the EOS M lens mount openly with everybody who wants tu build a lens, this might help. Also, the body needs badly a built-in EVF instead of the crappy flash.
