I'd love to see an EOS M2 with dual pixel AF and an EFV. I've stared at the EOS-M deals on Amazon and B&H over the last few months, and was a mouse-click away from pushing that "order" button a half dozen times or so. But I just can't bear the thought of using one without an EFV, and without the AF shown off in the 70D. The Fuji X-E1 kind of owns the mirrorless scene for now, but I wish Canon had a competitor to it.Its still 2 - 3 years until Canon even dares to think about competing with Sony or Fuji on the mirrorless market.
Tarzan want EOS M2, now!
Canon could do it right now, but they are terrified that a high end mirrorless (let's say a compact high resolution FF), will seriously hurt their DSLR sales. That's the only explanation I can think of when it comes to their piss poor EOS M. They are not even trying! .. But if Canon won't do it, others will eat their lunch. Mirrorless cameras are on the uprise, and Canon can't hide from it.
You hit the nail on the head. I think I'm going to have to go with Fuji for my travels upcoming in December; the EOS-M is just sad. If Canon can't give me what I need, I'll spend my hard earned money elsewhere.
