PowerShot / Re: The New Canon PowerShot G7 X

Is the G7X the first G-Series without a hotshoe?

Maybe they are developing a push-pull 100-400 DO for the EOS-M - it will be a tad bigger than the 22mm/2.0 pancake ;)

"Fits in a jeans pocket" is an important priority in some some situations, which is why I got the S95 then the S100.  The EOS M has better IQ (especially in low light or when a fast shutter is needed), but it's bigger and sometimes the 18-55 isn't wide enough, whereas 24mm FFeq would be (that happened today). 

You should try the ef-m 11-22 - you can get it here in Canada through Canon for $399. It is a fantastic lens - I used it %70 of the time on a recent NYC vacation trip.

My S90 is a little long in the tooth and has not seen the light of day since I got the M but this little G7 X seems interesting. The latest RX III seemed a tad short on the long end though at 70mm.

Correct me if I am wrong, don't the G series all have hot shoes whereas this one does not?

Mine is super sharp too. Can you post some images along with the EXIF data - that way we can get a better sense of what might be the issue. Shutter speed, etc...

EOS-M / Re: Anything new on EOS-M3? How it may compare to A6000?

True or fake... that is the question.....

Looks fake to me but would be an awesome update to the M/M2 we have today ;)

Thanks for the stats - I would be curious about more recent stats as these ones are roughly 18 months old - Fuji doesn't even show up on the chart but I am sure they are in the top 20 now.

I bought an M kit with the 18-55 and 90EX back in June from Amazon for 350. I soon after bought a 22mm and the ef-ef-m adapter off of eBay for 170 u$d.

When I saw the Canon 55-250 ef-m announcement in the summer it gave me hope that the mount has some legs behind it and is not entirely abandoned by Canon. As a result of that I bout tHe excellent 11-22 in Canada where I live and it was on my camera 70% of the time this past week in NYC and the other 30% was the 18-55. Most of my shots were typical tourist type stuff but the 11-22 was rock solid.

I have the M and 18-55 EF M.   Recently I considered buying a Tamron 18-200 for it. Then I said I'd wait until an "M3" came out..with a EVF, maybe a flash, maybe a flip screen, etc etc.  Why buy lenses for a dead system?

EVF, built in flash would be awesome, followed by a flip screen and tethering capabilities for studio shooting.

^^ Wow - nice and compact! I have the 11-22 for the M but I am sure the 8mm fisheye can capture the back of your head with the FOV ;)

It has a convenient handy to carry it - nice! It looks very pocket-able indeed....

I've had my M for over a year. I originally bought it as a novelty / occasional use camera and partly to see what the mirrorless fuss was all about. I recently took it to Seoul as well as my 5D2. To my surprise I ended up using the M a lot more than the DSLR simply because hauling a backpack all day long got quite painful. Maybe I'm out of shape but it's a vacation damn it and I don't need or want a workout. The M was a blessing and together with the 11-22mm lens it pretty much covered what I wanted to shoot.

Point is I love DSLRs but I'm starting to think a small compact mirrorless makes a heck of a lot more sense for holidays and general use. Which is what a lot of people will want a camera for. I love the M as it is, even with its flaws I can work around and its still an enjoyable experience. All Canon need to do IMO really is improve upon it slightly and support the system to make it even better. Seriously, that 11-22mm lens is amazing! I highly recommend any wide angle fans to give a go! To have an image stabilized ultra wide zoom on a APS-C sensor / camera the size of your fist is incredible! Why is this not more popular??
Exactly why I picked up an M - to augment my 5D3 setup for vacations and general use. I now find myself using it far more than my FF because of the portability aspect. I just picked up the 11-22 - too early to praise or pan it - I have not even uploaded the test images as of yet.

I am looking forward to a surprise M3 from Canon for Photokina :)

Which 100 2.8 are you talking about? The non-L or the L with IS? There is also the 100mm F2.0

I get it now.

My comment was very sincere - I have met Craig a few times and been in his lens rental business - top notch guy and top notch business. I hope they nail the thieves and Craig gets his gear back safe and sound

Craig, totally bummed out to hear about your business loss. I hope the Police nail whoever is responsible for the thefts.

I guess they'd have run a...

Sting operation?

Huh? I don't get it...
