I dunno, haven't we been told something like this since 2012? :P

Can I get it in an M mount please?
Thank you!
I would be sufficiently happy if it came with a metal mount. Betting against though.

They could have at least added Wi-fi...  :-\

China isn't as cheap as it used to be, and getting too risky besides. They should totally move production here. :D

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Is the future of DSLRs FF only?

I think there will always be a market for high performance 7D-type cameras, if only for the reach.

That said, I think it is very likely that Rebel DSLRs will be eaten by EF-M models, possibly in as soon as 5 years. It is no secret really--there is currently a price collision between lower end DSLR/mirrorless/premium compacts. I think it would be quite amusing to have the Rebel brand be relaunched as high end mirrorless; the EOS M is basically a stripped-down T4i as it is.

Longer term, the mirrorless form factor is more appealing to casual photographers and vacationers in the first place, and happens to be cheaper to produce once the R&D is done--there are far fewer parts without the mirrorbox or dedicated AF/metering sensors.

How can that be a 22mm lens if the front element is only 14mm across?
Because it's f/2 and has a physical aperture of 11mm.

EOS Bodies / Re: Poll: What will be the price of first EOS M?
« on: July 20, 2012, 10:07:30 PM »
I'm expecting $600-800 based on G1X pricing. I wouldn't be surprised to see $1000 though; y'know, pulling a Nikon 1. ;)

If anything, the lens feels like it should have an update since the 15-85 got introduced. I would like the range to start at 15 also.

22mm x 1.6 APS-C = 35.2mm FOV
22mm x 1.85 G1X = 40.7mm FOV

Honestly, I'd be happy with either. ;D

Classic is closest:
  • Rangefinder-type thin form factor
  • Buttons for all major exposure controls, with at least two manual dials
  • pop-up flash for fill
I would also like built in radio master, but am not expecting to see it. Also, not expecting to see two dials, just one. Flash presence could go either way. Oh well. :(

Remote Control RC-6 or generic equivalent. For the times you actually want to be in the picture too.

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 Pancake
« on: June 06, 2012, 07:06:47 PM »
On a side note: why are you all referring to the aperture as "speed/fast", in what way is a 2.8-lens faster than a 5.6-lens (the latter has a smaller maximum aperture which is not to say it is faster in any way)?

Larger aperture lenses deliver more light to the sensor, which means you can use a faster shutter speed.

f/5.6 is two stops slower than f/2.8. Say you're already using ISO 1600, and the f/5.6 lens can only get 1/15 shutter speed. The f/2.8 could achieve 1/60 under the same conditions, which can make all the difference sometimes...

The new Rebel should be in the EOS IX form factor. It would be 40mm shorter and 20mm thinner than the Rebel T3, a significant size savings.

It would still be an SLR, would still have the EF mount, but the introduction of a 40mm pancake would make a tad more sense...

Since we're wishing, I'd basically like a Fuji X-like system, but with sensor phase detect.
