EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS M2 Not Coming to North America

I have a pretty basic setup so I'll be getting rid of my stuff to jump to Sony too.

EOS-M / Re: The Next EOS M [CR2]

I hope it has full frame and an optical viewfinder and takes EF lenses natively.

I don't. I don't and I don't.

But I just wanted to be the first to say it.

+1 for me too, Sir, Dear Mr. Paul.
Yes " I hope it has full frame and an optical viewfinder and takes EF lenses natively." + 1 Customize remote control too.
It can't fit the EF natively because of the flange distance, just like it can't fit the EF-S lenses natively. An adapter will be necessary.

BUT I really, really hope that Canon makes a focal reducer with respectable AF speed. After all, they're already doing it with teleconverters. A focal reducer could virtually make the EOS-M a full frame camera. That would be incredible.

Like I said before. Canon's "Answer" to the Nikon D800 (and future D900, and the Sony A7R) will come as a big bulky elephant sized 1D-body, with a price tag that most people can't touch.

Ok, then...but what are Nikon and Sony's "Answers" to the 5DIII, which has outsold the D800 and will vastly outsell the a7R?   ::)

Why do people think Canon needs to play Nikon's game?  The D800 was Nikon's attempt to play the game by Canon's rules (we'll see your 8-9 MP increase, and raise you by another 14 MP), and Nikon lost.
When someone attacks a Canon body, you always resort to raw sales. That'S not very interesting.

Well I shoot APS-C and I don't use video... For what I do, Canon hasn't done anything interesting since the 7D. I don't even need Canon to innovate at this point, just follow some of what their competitors are doing and I would be happy.

Lots of full frame cameras coming out and Canon gives us firmware updates and a white Rebel. That's pathetic.

I think this will be a camera to compete with the Nikon DF or Similar. Why would they have a teaser for a Rebel? They have to respond to all the new tech coming out with something different.

it´s a teaser for korean.

doesn´t have to be a new model at all... could just be a special edition for the korean market.

and i really don´t see why canon has to respond to a retro nikon.

Does Canon usually have teasers for such a small announcement? It seems that they would just announce it, not drag it.

Is it a MILC? It is filed under Canon mirrorless...

A 7D Mark II that is a SLT?
Where do you see that it's filed under mirrorless?

Oh no, people discuss possible improvements in a forum focusing on camera bodies on a website discussing rumors about the latest innovations. How dare they?

EOS M2. Same size as EOS-M. DP-AF sensor and absolutely all capabilities and features found in the 70D (except the flapping mirror and prism). "Retina" EVF included.  EF-S and EF-adapter included in package. Priced @ 999,- including 18-55 STM.

Instant win. Wait lists well into 2014.  :-)

Unfortunately greed has made Canon too stupid to even think about this.

Add a separate speedbooster-like adapter that doesn't affect AF (or not too much) and I'll be buying one.

There's more to a camera than its sensor, check out The Phoblographer's list of complaints about this camera:

I'd rather than 90% (or whatever percent is appropriate) the IQ 99% of the time vs. technically great stills that are out of focus, missed, underexposed, etc. most of the time.
Yes, these are points that are weak in the A7r. But the sensor is Canon's weakness and they should try to improve it. It seems really hard from Canon lovers to recognize problems without trying to find faults in competitors. Yes, Canon's great, but they can be greater.

Oh little EOS M. What are you going to do now that Sony has launched their EF-capable A7 and A7R?

Just go FF or go home.
Everyone is announcing crazy stuff and all we get is a firmware update :(

If Canon/Metabones could make a nice speedbooster-like adapter for the EOS-M, a 24-105 f/4 lens would become extremely attractive, making it a 17-74 f/2.8 on aps-c.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 70D Announced
« on: October 19, 2013, 03:30:36 PM »
Still looking to the EOS 70D as my next purchase but following release of the Nikon D5300 announced this week with 24MP sensor, no optical low pass filter & built in WiFi & GPS at £729*,  the Canon EOS 70D at £1079* is looking  rather over-priced; I'd hope to see some heavy reductions after Christmas...

* UK prices
If Canon could AT LEAST match the D7000's sensor rating I'd be happy. Until then, I won't buy anything from Canon and I even might get something from Sony or Nikon. The 70D's AF would be nice enough on a mirrorless body but doesn't justify getting one since I don't do movies.

EOS Bodies / Re: 70D Diagonal Image Processing (DIP) Defect

I have not used the 70D yet with shorter fl lenses.

First step of troubleshooting : isolate the problem. Try the camera with other lenses first.

There's been a drop in price for the EOS M recently so I wouldn't be surprised to see the EOS M2 appearing very soon.
