With MSRP over US $900. Canon may as well keep it away from northern America.

The increas in thickness is mainly due to the more substantial grip.– The size 110.9 x 68.0 x 44.4mm
– Weight 366g
EOS M (1): 109.0 x 67.0 x 32.0 mm - Weight: 298g
sh!t she's got a fat a$$.
I predict pricing will be 699 in Canada, 599 U$D.If you are right, add another $200 for the EVF, that will make it a $800 camera. I am wondering how many of us will buy it??
Well said, You are a real scientist (NO pum intented)Why? That thing looks hideous, and I rather doubt that someone who thought it looked good would take photos I would want to look at.
Way to judge.
I know aesthetics trump function for some. A good example was a woman I saw this morning in very aesthetically pleasing Ferragamo boots, obviously appearance was important to her. I noticed her boots mainly because they were up in the air after she had unfortunately slipped and fallen on her backside trying to walk on the snowy/icy sidewalk. My black snow boots may look a bit odd with a tailored suit, but as someone who prioritizes function over form I had sufficient traction on the slippery sidewalk to help her back to her feet.
Disappointed in the increased size and the grip. They should of kept it simplistic like the original.With the lens on, the grip is not going to take up any real space. With size increase 3 to 4mm in width and length is not going to be a problem. Just hope that the thickness does not increase . Also hope that that Canon will put a bigger battery inside the grip.
Only thing they really needed was increased AF speed, next gen sensor and maybe AV, TV, M and P as part of the main dial. Also a dedicated switch to turn on and off the touchscreen. I would of happily upgraded.
Instead they listened to too many people and came up with a camera that is half full and half empty. The price will probably increase substantially now.
For this reason, aside from a few more pancakes, I don't think canon should spend too much time of ef-m lenses, but should in fact put a plastic ef-s adaptor or money off a metal ef/ef-s adaptor in every m box.Amazon is selling the Canon adapter for $45 in the U.S.
Thanks, It was at Troy, Turkey.at 18mm, f7.1 EOS-M is a great Travel camera
Nice photo. Were is it taken? Zimbabwe?
Excellent first hand advice.I reviewed all your suggestions, the F-Stop Tilopa seems to be the best option for me, but it's probably a little too big. So I give the F-Stop Loka a shot, hopefully it's big enough.
I fly quite a lot, I wouldn't even try to take a Tilopa as carry on, even if the checkin staff don't get you, and that is often easy to avoid with print your own boarding passes, the gate staff will most of the time.
I'd anticipate being pulled and having to check a fully packed Loka too looking at the size specs.
My strong advice, resulting from years of playing the carry on game, is break your kit down to two bags, two small bags are always going to get less attention than one much bigger one, and if all your eggs are in that one basket when you do meet an official that insists it has to be checked you are screwed. Everybody allows a carryon and one personal item (even if you have to pay for the carryon), I use a ThinkTank Retrospective as my personal item and a small backpack, Kenti sized, for my carry on, I pack whatever I can in the backpack but keep the serious valuables to hand so if it has to be checked (it never has since adopting this system) I can swap them to the ThinkTank. Also, take a Cagoule with a large breast pocket, it will keep you dry, it packs to nothing and if challenged you can put an extraordinary amount of stuff in the pocket which doesn't count towards your carryon allowance (I have had to do that one time out of the UK).
For light travel I take the small backpack, it is a $35 generic made by Swiss Gear, that takes, camera, lenses, etc, laptop and or iPad and a couple of change of clothes, and my personal item is the tripod. For longer trips I take the Swiss Gear with slimmed down electronics and the ThinkTank Retrospective 10, but I understand if you want the camera bag functionality of an F-Stop backpack so I'd swap my generic out for one of those, but still take a small shoulder bag as insurance, I have gotten $5 bags as throw aways from different places to finesse my way through airports.
Whatever arrangements you make you need to hedge your bets and insure against that one official that says 'no' one time, or be prepared to miss a flight or have your gear go in an unsuitable bag into the hold via baggage handlers.
If I were to do this simply, I would try something rather funny:Been there, Done that. It works. As long as it is under 17.5 lbs. Some airline actually weights your carry on when you are being checked -in.
1. I would choose the smallest possible shoulder bag that would carry the photo equipment.
2. I would choose a general purpose bag in the dimensions you mentioned.
3. I would put the small shoulder bag inside the bigger one.
4. I would fill the rest of the bag with all necessary items.
Hi,Have you try to use a SLOWER ( may be a class 4 card) SD card? It may worth a trial. A slower SD card fix my problem.
I have the shutter bug with the ef-m 11-22, but only under a certain condition: if I turn on the camera with the lens already set to the "open" position, the bug is there, the only way to get rid of it is to cycle the lens in the "park" position, then pulling out it again, or remove le lens.
No problem with the adapter for EF-s lenses.
No difference with whatever SD is used; it's a lens-camera issue.
