Will not on my shopping cart until I see FF sensor.

X2 but I'm afraid the chance of that in Canikon land is very, very slim.

I agree, neither company has any interest in pursuing a FF mirrorless.  I'm sure they see that as a quick way to kill off their lucrative FF DSLR and lens sales.  I'm thinking either Fujifilm or Sony will be the 1st to do it and I'm hoping it's done in 2013.  I think Sony put out a feeler with the RX-1 to gauge interest, but the first company to produce such a camera with an acceptable (doesn't need to be pro-level) af system will get my money and probably the money of many others looking for the same thing.  Buying all new compact lenses is a given....

I like the red but the hump is pretty fugly.

I agree they need to fix the AF before anything else. There was a rumor on canonwatch with firmware update hopefully that comes true.

I was looking at the nex 6 as an option but the image quality is not up to par so will wait for other options.

Have you looked into the Fuji XE-1?  The only reason I haven't bought one yet is I am debating a wide angle  lens vs the Fuji.

In a way I think this goes against the whole purpose of the EOS-M line.

For those asking for full frame it's not happening any time soon and if it does than I'd expect a minimum of 3499 and a non EF mount due to the flange distance is not suitable for anything remotely compact.  I'm sure an EF adapter would be possible but pretty much the best you are looking at is Leica M9 @ $4000 with autofocus and a new lens lineup that is not EF compatible and at canon L prices.


I'd much rather see something comparative with the fuji xe-1 which has pretty much the best aps-c sensor

Good AF, good lens lineup size, great control scheme and awesome styling

Any camera with a normal EF mount would still have the same flange distance as current EOS DSLRs.  With a mirrorless design, all you would lose is the bulge of the pentaprism (I am assuming a pentaprism, since all full frame EOS bodies use a pentaprism).

To get any size benefits on full frame would require a new lens mount - or at least different optics, which allow for the rear element to be placed closer to the sensor.  In addition, the sensor would need to cope with incident light coming from a more oblique angle - something that digital sensors do not do well.  Leica has had to do some clever things with its micro-lens arrangement and IT and low-pass filters in order to get the lens closer to the sensor - something that was not a problem with film.
Even with the 85mm f/1.2 lens, Canon is doing some fudging of the sensor sensitivity because of the oblique angle at which the light strikes the sensor - the sheer size of the rear element is something to behold.

Given current technology, a full frame mirrorless camera would not give any size advantage over a DSLR.  Given that OVFs are superior to EVFs, that begs the question, of why even to bother with a full frame mirrorless camera.

In my mind, APS-C mirrorless makes sense, full frame doesn't.

I have to say that I don't see any point to having the viewfinder on this camera.  I want a small camera, if I want to walk around with a big camera I will take my 5Dm2.

A built-in flash should be the biggest priority for them along with the AF.

I'd rather have them work better AF instead of an EVF...

Absolutely!

And it's ugly and not good for pockets(even with pancake) because of this EVF.

I see some comments here are about how the evf is unsightly or cumbersome. I just wanted to make sure that people know that the picture is not real. It is just a mock-up created by someone on dpreview forums. I highly doubt that this is what the real canon will look like when it becomes a reality.

Fuji is out of my budget and there is no EF adapter that does AF available for it.

The main thing that the EOS-M has going for it is compatibility with EF lens.

What are they waiting for? I DO NOT wish to mount my EF 24-70 or 70-200 on that tiny thing - what's is the point buying mirrorless ???

The point of small/light weight mirrorless cameras is that they are small and leight weight. Always use the right tool for the job. The EOS-M is not the right tool for big/bulky/heavy zoomz, but it could be the right tool for small/non-bulky/light weight primes.

That's why I said "I do not wish to mount my 24-70 + 70-200 on that tiny thing". If you travel often ask I do, you will see how FF mirrorless becomes handy.

If they Add and EVF + Fast AF, Expect 799$ body Only.  O_o

I actually think the current one works well with some bigger lenses - the 70-300L, for example.

Me, I hate EVFs, and definitely don't want one. As has been said, decent AF is what they should work on!

All I want is a body with full professional style controls and a 300mm f4 made for the ILC format (giving the same FOV as FF but on a smaller sensor, which gives better low light performance).

I think it would be cool if they would make a body no larger in diameter than the lens mount, then a telephoto lens becomes a lot easier to pack around, and it would be ultra compact with a pancake.

+1

Look at the micro 4/3 market... small bodies, small lenses, lower weight and price tags. After almost 4 years of micro 4/3 there are still no long lenses for the mount, and the reason is probably because there is little demand. If you are going to go to the expense of big glass and carrying the weight of big glass, then you are probably the type of person who appreciates enthusiast or pro bodies... after all, how often do you see a 600 f4 on a $300 rebel?

There are lots of micro 4/3  sales.... I suspect that this is the market the EOS-M is targeting.
