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.
There weren't any fires but it did come down in price on amazon.jp around the same time as the US price reduction. I watched it closely and when it hit 31,000 Yen I bought it. It bottomed out at around 29,000 yen before being replaced by the M2 which has almost halved in price itself since release. I saw a
I consider 30,000 a close approximation to $300 btw. the dollor yen rate is all over the darn place now but relatively speaking it's about that.
