On article Modern Mirrorless: Canon EOS M5 Review (1595 comments in total)

Nice camera, sure.
But who's it aimed at?
Too pricey for beginners, too limited in specs for enthusiasts.

Clyde Thomas: Why do I still want a two year old Samsung NX-1 instead of a new Sony a6500?

Not available any more?

You can buy a decent camera if you save up rental fee for a year.

I know it's unlikely, but I hope they sell it in Japan.

I would pick PEN-F. If it was a little less expensive, I would purchase one.

As for me, D500 is the only camera I wouldn't mind paying the full price for. Others are either too large, too expensive, or just not enough.

rfsIII: If Nikon came out with a new 17-55 2.8, I would dump my D810 and my obnoxiously heavy full frame lenses and buy a pair of D500s. Same for Canon; please fellas, refresh your DX professional zooms!

Only true if you're planning to 'upgrade' to FF.

With big sensors inside, compact cameras aren't as compact as they used to be.

I hope it doesn't follow the Samsung NX path.

These cameras will only hold value to those who understand them.

This will be a nice beginner's camera or a nice back-up camera for advanced users.

skanter: Fixed LCD equals useless IMO. Should be outmoded by now.

I'll take an outmoded camera any day if it's better than one in mode.

DSLR for those who need something that is just a DSLR. No frills, no high performance, no latest tech, no nothing.

I wouldn't be surprised if most of them deteriorated beyond salvation.

This event should teach Nikon that if you're adding a feature, add it so that it's useful, or don't add it at all.

VisualFX: How does this get better rating then Samsung NX1 that does 15fps, 4K, 205 Phase AF, 153 cross-type,etc, and fast AF of 0.055s, all two years ago?

NX1 was never universally available.

In reply to:

Old Cameras: I think customers would accept an all- carbon fiber camera body and the deletion of the auto focus motor for screw drive lenses, and the aperture ring, making this camera like a D5xxx, compatible only with AF-S lenses. They could make a top of the line camera that weighs little more than a pound.

As a back up for D500, maybe.

In reply to:

jrsjs: Given its price and its size, I am not sure why one would buy this instead of a full frame model. I don't think that the D810 is much more expensive now. The D810 has a crop mode so you can obtain the extra reach if needed but there again with 36MP you can simply crop.
I appreciate that if you own many DX lenses it could appeal but even so.

For some people, FF, whatever size or price, is not an option.
