2) There will be a new M camera announced this year, more on that soon.

Thanks, but i don't really care. Knowing stupid Canon, it will be something like an EOS M10 Mk. II, available in unicorn-pink, kiss-my-ass-brown and fishy-blue.  :P

I guess I should post what I know about the new M today?

That stinks, I have a SL1 and EF-S glass coming from Canon Direct, arrives Friday courtesy of FedEx ground. Return?

Or maybe keep... Having a native 50 to mount, and non-crippled video are huge boons for me. Oddly the SL1 with it's latest STM glass is ALMOST the same weight as the EF-M system. Size, it's 50% more volume, I did the math. The real trouble is the SL1 has no future (but it doesn't have anything wrong with it), vs the M3 does have a future, but the AF and video are woof, but somewhat manageable.

Just make sure you don't get rid of your m3 too quickly. Reevaluate your needs after a few months. I do miss my m3 sometimes. Despite its slowness, I miss its compactness. Like I said before, we can't have it all. Gain some, lose some.

I started with Minolta for my 1st SLR a long time ago. Back then they were the innovators, produced good glass but they took a wrong turn with the APS film system. Tried to recover with the the RD-175, probably the first digital SLR, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minolta_RD-175 Have one sitting in my office. It was $5k, at the time of purchase, didn't sell well. After other failures they eventually sold out to Sony.

A little unrelated but, what happened to the lens expertise Minolta should have brought to Sony? Was it ever there or am I just being nostalgic?

Canon has chosen the mirrored road for it's main product line, it will be interesting to see how it compete's against mirror-less FF in the future which is probably only going to get better over time. You have to think they will make the switch if FF mirror-less becomes a threat to sales. Right now Canon wins on glass IMO. So only time will tell.

Personally I don't care either way as long as the AF, IQ, price and DR are comparable. Then there's always the glass.....
