I think Canon dilutes thier lineup with too many of the same cameras. Why would a consumer buy this vs the T4i for the same price? What's different about this and the T4i (maybe I missed that)?You'd be surprised with how many people make a buying decision based on size alone. I'm thinking that since Canon did not make such an impact on the market, with their mirror less cameras, they might be trying something different ... who knows, it might click.
You know, this goes against the flow here but I'm more interested in this camera than the eos M.
Just to clarify, I own the 5DII, 5DIII and up till recently the 7D. I also own a Lumix LX3 as a pocket camera. Professional gigs aside, I've stopped using the LX3 for social and personal events in favour of my 5DIII with the 40mm pancake. I would be interested in making this setup even more compact with a smaller body. It interests me more than the eos M and I love the quality and size of the pancake.
I guess I won't know how small this is till I feel it in my hands but if it does come to fruition and it's to my liking, I might wait till the price cools and be up for it?
