I'm struggling to see the point of this post.   ???

Lol agreed, I was expecting more of comparison versus a short rant. I guess good thing you didn't get a 5d3! Hooray!

He acted and tested like a child. I'm not hostile towards him. I'm just calling it as I see it.

DigitalRev episodes are for entertainment, with some good, practical information shared in many of them. If you're looking for well designed, repeatable tests with detailed analysis...there are plenty of options for that elsewhere.

This is similar to someone watching Top Gear when trying to decide which car to buy. It's not meant to be serious, and if you watch it expecting it to be, you'll likely be disappointed.

Awesome! That's been my way of describing digitalrev to people top gear of cameras. That's why I watch both shows!

EOS M's are flooding my local Craigslist!!!!

Maybe I will get a quote and see how much it will cost. Hate to junk it as it still takes nice pictures.

There's one for sale locally by me for 850$ he must not be ready to let his go yet either as keh.com has them for almost half that.

Eos M white discontinued on B&H website, I kinda wanted that one. I bought the black one.

Sad news!   :'(

The $1.7M price tag.

Oh so it was a bit sarcastic in your post, I assumed it was selling for cheap. That's funny it said 1.7 million! Wish you got the screen shot.

EOS Bodies / Re: The Next EOS M Camera(s) [CR1]

I just posted a few hours ago in the $299 EOS thread that it seemed like a silly purchase; since Canon would likely be replacing it with a dual-pixel AF markII version.

I guess I was spot on with that prediction.


How is paying $300 for a mirrorless with DSLR IQ and a small, fast, and by all accounts, sharp prime silly?  That there would be an improved successor is blatantly obvious. But you're the Man.

In my opinion the EOS-M is not worthy of its price tag due to its poor AF, even at $299.  Opinions vary.  And people can buy in to first generation gear; it's their money - their choice.  They know the risks going in.  And when there's a fire sale, it's pretty telling that the new technology (ie, dual-pixel AF) just made the previous generation obsolete.

Don't be mad. 


Cheaper than my 600$ iPhone, more portable than a 5d that's why I bought one. I can make decent photos with an iPhone and better ones with a 5d but I get nervous walking around with my 5d I won't cry as much if my 300 dollar camera gets stolen. So congrats to the happy people that got a great deal on a great camera!

Ugh I bought a black one cause the whites were backordered! Should I just take the backorder and go for white, did I make a mistake. Hopefully the black will be just as fun and maybe be less conspicuous.

I don't care what body u use, your photo is only as good as your lens.
Go for the lens, whatever body doesn't matter

+1 can't agree more! Went to cars and coffee today with my 5d2 20-35 2.8L attached and a 12 year old canon 1d 4.2mp with 50 1.2L attached only difference I saw was bokeh and distortion from wide angle. Seriously this canon 1d 4.2mp at 12 years old makes just as good a photo as my 5d2. Shoot the af and 8fps on my 12 year old canon will be more than enough for the kids. This old 1d focuses so much better in bright and low light than my 5d2 its insane, disappointing actually. I have some old lenses and cameras but they give me great images compared to what people spend on higher end stuff. If you're not making money from your camera then buy what you want cause you will be happier that way. FF is awesome and crop is too try before you buy then you'll know!!

You got the 70-200 II? Did you sell the 17-55? I was gonna tell you to sell the 17-55, there's other alternatives that are cheaper. I had the 17-55 and I don't miss it. I went full frame and my 24-105 is so similar to the 17-55 on crop as the 24-105 on my 5d. I do appreciate the stronger build of the 24-105 over the 17-55, if the 17-55 was L build I'd keep it but now I don't even have a crop.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 40D to 5D Classic. Good upgrade?

Just my 2 cents a little late but I've printed bigger than 20x30 with my 40d with a 18-55 and a 70-200 f4 and I don't notice any difference between those prints and my 5d2 prints. I no longer have the 40d as I needed a body with AFMA for use with some older lenses. Just keep saving for that 6d and keep using that 40d. 40d is an awesome camera no doubt underrated. If it had AFMA I'd still have it!

Tried to pull a fast one and get it at Best Buy using their "price match" thing.  They don't stock it in store though  :'(

This price seems too low for Canon... even if a new one with the new AF system, higher resolution/better everything came out.  This price seems like an "F it" move that could only be appropriate if the eos M is going extinct already... or is that me overreacting...

Is it possible that a new mirrorless camera could come with the EF mount standard?

The 70-200 II had been selling at $2400, then in Dec 2012 it dropped by $500, and IIRC, Adorama sold it even cheaper for a few days.  The price went up - it's still cheaper than $2400, but >$300 more than the nadir.

I think the steep discount, combined with the facts that we're fast approaching the 1-yr anniversary of the EOS M announcement (late July, 2012) and that the M is a consumer camera and the Rebel/xxxD line has been getting annual updates, as well as the 70D's sensor, which is almost tailor-made for mirrorless, means that we'll see an M II announcement pretty soon.

But this really is a great price - as I said, it should be possible to sell it down the line for little loss. An M II will be far more expensive for a while.

Canon just released a UWA zoom for the M.  An M with an EF mount would be giving up the thinner depth that eliminating the mirror gives, it's not going to happen.

So does the M with the 22mm f2 depth of field behave like a f2 lens? Or is it still like all crops and less shallow?

1700 doesn't seem like a deal

I bought one although the more I read I feel I shouldn't have! Please let me love the camera! Or I suppose my ladies bday is coming up!
