Well, it is promising that Canon at least half heartedly made a mirrorless camera.

I think the APS sensor size is Ok. The lens on the Sony RX1 is too big. At least with MFT and somewhat with APS the lens can be somewhat small. But I guess a FF mirrorless with something like the 40mm pancake would be truly compact.

If the M had a built in flash I might have had to buy it. At least this way I don't have to even consider it. Can stick with the GF1.

In my mind, a digital version of the Contax T3 is the holy grail. Features, size and even comprable price.

Sorry for the ramble...

yes, without rangefinder, but rather a great new EVF!

FULL FRAME can be very COMPACT!

Canon, we want a full-frame compact system camera  ... with 1D-X sensor, great EVF, popup-flash, full controls,  and best of all, an electrified M-mount plus a fitting EF-adapter ... and make it less expensive than an a 5D 3 ... since it needs no prism, no OVF, and no mirrorbox. Lets say 2,000 USD/€.  And, Canon .. we want it NOW.  ;D

Regarding the size of the Contax T3... When I've argued with people about this before, some have stated that whereas light can strike film from almost any angle and still properly expose it, a digital sensor requires the light to hit it rather perpendicularly.

Therefore, the tiny lens on the T3 is supposedly impossible at least with current technology. Which I guess explains the huge lens on the Sony RX1.

However, in only a few years time we have gone from almost no large sensor compact cameras to a veritable plethora of models to chose from.

My guess is that the technology exists or will soon exist to make very small FF and APS compact cameras with retractible or very small lenses. What remains to be seen is at what pace the camera companies will release these cameras to us.

This camera has been delayed and no one here posts about the update.  Is that a precursor to its popularity?  I want one but I will hold the line on this model.  I'll wait and see if a 24*36 version comes to be.

If Canon do built a full frame mirror-less at a selling price of $2000+, people will compare it against 5D3/6D and say it might not be worth it. As a marketing point of view, a sub $1000 camera will always attract more customers than a $2000+ small camera with Pro features. :P

The reason I want FF mirrorless is because of the size and low light shooting.

Don't care much about AF speed and/or frame rate.

Well, yeah, but at its real price, I am starting to get worried due to reported early user experiences, especially very slow focusing..

I'm quite interested though, possibly to replace my 400D for when I want to travel light.
