It is not scientific. And reviews are too much work! I applaud all the reviewers out there...!! Thank you all.

What metering and focusing modes were you using?
profiling/calibrating by eye is pretty useless if you ask me.
the ambient light will effect your judgement.
prints reflect ambient light.
and as the ambient light changes you will adjust your monitor for a temp situation
do it the right way or don´t.
those shortcuts are useless.
withouth going to deep into it... make sure your monitor is not set to 300 cd/m2.
that´s one of the biggest mistakes... a brigthness that is set too high.
your monitor image may look fine to you but it´s bad for editing prints.
it´s way to bright and your prints will look dark.
keep in mind that paper only reflects light (it does not emit light like a monitor).
sounds banal but people often forget that.
look at your prints indoors and outoors.
indoors you will alway have a different impression then outside on a sunny summer day.
my monitor is set to 120 cd/m2 and i have my ambient light adjusted for my workplace.
prints should be made for the light they are VIEWED under.
that is why good galeries light every print.
your whole system can be calibrated/profiled and perfectly color managed. if the light the print is viewed under is not the light you edited your print for.... there will be a visuell difference to the viewer.
WB is most obvious here... the white of the paper changes a lot when viewed under tungsten light and then under an 7000K LED light. so it´s not only your monitor... it´s also your viewing conditions you have to keep in mind.
another point is the black point.
i do a lot of B&W prints and it´s not easy to get that right with print services.
black density differs from monitor to prints (papers).
what looks good on the monitor often is not (can not) be perfect for the print.
so i always make a extra print version that i edit especially for print output.
black point, white point, contrast, color adjustments etc.Quote
Ok, the EOS M Pro - when it gets released, if ever.
I'll be all over it, and the M->EF adaptor.
I currently own a G10, with a 270EX flash mounted on it constantly, that I'd like to replace with Canon's answer to the Fuji X-E2, Panasonic GF7 and Sony NEX-6. The G10 still takes great pictures though, if there's enough light.
And what is Canon's answer to the Fuji X-E2?
