I'm patiently awaiting some proper sample photos and a hands-on review, but it certainly looks VERY promising Not going to take away anything beyond that from these shots.

Firstly let me just say - I don't mean to offend any Eos-m users by putting this post.
I am still keen is getting a smaller unit as an alternative to my 5dmk3 and I believe this is the Eos-m system.
However, with Canon releasing a new G1 camera and only releasing the Eos-M 2 in Japan and some parts of Asia, have they abandoned the Eos-m system? Should I wait later this year instead of getting the original Eos-m?
I was looking at the Focal stuff awhile back, but it seems that I read on the site, that it didn't fully work with the 5D3.
Does anyone know if they've fixed it yet?
Will this lens offer image stabilization? I'm guessing, no. crucial for hand held video work~
Reading reviews it seems they're not all the way there in some areas - AF sensitivity, handling, shutter blackout, battery life, lack of lens selection all seem like little annoyances that would add up.I have the Sony a7 and this is my observation:
"AF sensitivity": Excellent ... if its the a7 (I'm told the a7r is not as good, but I've never tried it)
"Handling": Very Good
"Shutter blackout": Yes, it blacks out for a good part of a second after each shot.
"Battery life": Sucks cow n!pples ... lack of a charger sucks ever more.
"Lack of Lens selection": Yes, for the time being ... but if Sony delivers on their promise, we could see a good selection of lenses within 2 years.
No one thinks that the a7's are going to kill DSLR. However, as I've recently read in a review, the a7's Mk II could. It's impossible not to see the potential, when you consider that they are a world first vs a decades-old, mature, established tech. Possibly surpassed tech? Time will tell.
They have class leading sensors, good tech inside, excellent (though momentarily few and a tad pricey) Zeiss branded AF lenses, and they can take pretty much any lens ever made. And they're small like a MFT camera - something that people like me, who take lots of planes, will be thankful for.
