Did the Canon reps happen to mention how fast Canon was going to expand the next M camera line? Once Canon gets the focusing speed issues resolved and we all become accustomed to using an EVF, the 7D2 might actually be an M camera.
No, they were quite strong about this.. It looks like Canon is testing the temp of the water with the EOS-M... They did say that the EOS-M more than likely will "not" have a EVF as a plug in accessory.. But it will support all canons flash guns...
Another thing that surprised me was that you can't shoot without a lens.. which means that if you want to use old FD lens with and adaptor ( like the NEX range ) it can't be done on the model that I had a play with.. It could be when they release the production model they will change the firmware to allow shooting without lens..
There was no mention of a 7D2 but we did get to see a sample image of the 6D which was extremely impressive..
As long as there's some attachment then it should be fine...?
If that's true about not being able to use FD or any other legacy lenses then the M will lose a lot of buyers, I mean, that's the main reason to go mirror less for a lot of people, along with compact IQ of course.
They might address that issue when they release the production model.. Basically from what I was told the EOS-M is a 650D shrunk.
