No IS? ehhhhh... IF the IQ is better than the 1.4 when the STM is wide open, I may go for it. Otherwise I can't see any benefit for me.

Got it! Thanks for the info.Judging by the lens, they kept it similar in size to the original. That's a good thing, an EVF would increase the size. I expect it'll be compatible with Canon's hotshoe add-on EVF. An extra dial means more control, also good. The integrated grip is nice, glad they ditched their proprietary strap lug.If Canon wants to compete it needs an EVF model. If this does not come with an EVF built in, then there isn't much hope for Canon to compete in a ruthless market segment.
I'm sure you're right. After all, the EOS M was merely the second-best selling MILC in the largest geographical market for the segment, beating out models from Fuji, Olympus and Panasonic despite lacking an EVF. Not competitive at all, right?
Look at the price it had to come down to in order to sell... They still need to make profit in order to be called competing. You could get one for $250 with a lens, when the original price was closer to an A6000, which spanks the noodles out of it.
You're talking about North America, where MILC sales are weak. I was referring to Japan...there was no 'fire sale' on the EOS M there.
I don't know a thing about the market for the EOS M or MILCs in general, in any geographical region or worldwide, but I just love the expression spanks the noodles out of it!
So they're copying Sony's A7 line. canon is doomed.
both the first global shutter rumor (i gave me the name KAI) and then the sony canon partnership was send in by me.
both websites where happy to report this pure fantasy..
i still roll on the floor laughing....
I'm still proceeding under the assumption that the "big megapixel" camera is actually a DPAF sensor where the megapixel count of images will be half that of the number of photosites. So, I'm expecting a 26-ish mp camera. Which would be fine with me, I don't need and truthfully can't handle (processing) over 50 megapixels.
Is the 70D specified as a 40 MP camera?
A few weeks ago I picked up a Canon 50mm 1.2 L from another local photographer at a decent price, $1050.+
so it will cost me $238 plus what I paid to send it there.
