^^ 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 looks like this has been one upped - this looks like a convenient 'rig' to carry around :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.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.
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??
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...
(wait for it)
I do agree on longer focal lenghts, and bigger lenses, but there is still something to do, and as you mentioned, it lags especially at primes. I want f/1.8 M primes! Small 12mm, 32mm and 50mm primes. (35,50 and 80mm FLs).Agreed. Something like a Fuji 56/1.2 equivalent would round this out as a nice compact portrait kit. The kit lens has you at 5.6 when at 55mm - making the next town in focus
The time between new models seems to be increasing. There is typically little difference other than a few features.
Canon has said that their high end point and shoot models are doing very well, particularly the super zooms. I expect to see more in the $500-$800 range.
Typically a new S series comes out every September/October.I don't recall anything being announced to succeed the S120, have any of you heard anything of a looming release?
Thanks in advance
Nailed it at 1.4! Great shot!
