Yes, I DO mean native eos-M mount. Just to get the size down.

If it is much smaller than a Rebel then how will you hold it?

Ehm, how do you hold a g15? :)

Sounds like something similar to the Panasonic GH2 and GH3 only smaller and lighter.  If it has a new and upcoming APS-C sensor it could be huge winner for outdoor enthusiasts.

I have been a huge fan of the T3i with it's 3x crop mode for video for this very reason.  If they could make it even higher resolution, smaller and lighter with a 1 to 1 crop mode for video it would be a huge winner for wildlife videographers.

Here's the type of thing I've been using the T3i for.  Virtually all of this was shot at a 2880mm equivalent focal length !!!

Something smaller and lighter with the crop feature and a bit sharper sensor that uses existing Canon glass would be a godsend :)

Cheers,

It can't be a DSLR, then. Not enough room for a mirror.

Why are people assuming it would have the same size sensor as a Rebel? Smaller sensor = smaller camera.
pictures sharp. life not so much. www.unfocusedmg.com

A DSLR with a smaller sensor? Mmmh... Not going to happen, IMO. It's not the trend we've been noticing recently. Everybody is asking for bigger sensors in non-reflex cameras, but I've never come across anybody foretelling a smaller sensor in a DSLR in any forum.

Take a look at all the sales of micro four-thirds cameras..... There is a market and it would seem silly that Canon would not try for a share.

Ehm, why not? There is still space between the mount and the sensor, yes? And we have no idea if they will use Sony setup with static semitransparent mirror, or some ingenious technical solution to move the mirror out of the way, or something else.

But, I admit that I would think a mirrorless version of this WOULD make more sense. :) Basically a SX50 sized camera with EF-M mount and EVF.

So are they talking about a replacement for the 1100D or more like Nikon's new DX compact?

Would make a good companion for the 40 pancake lens, but not many other lenses.  Most would feel too big (just like most of those goofy four thirds systems, where the lenses are taller than the camera bodies).  Also, EVF viewfinder would be an instant deal breaker for me - I hate those things and would not even use one on a point and shoot.

But, throw in an optical viewfinder and introduce one or two more pancake lenses, and it could be a great high quality point and shoot camera.

Canon just needs to fix the EOS-M. We don't need another line-up of cameras.

Agreed. Though I have no interest in the EOS-M myself, it would seem to be a better business move from here. Personally though, I would rather see more new glass like something in the way of a spectacular wide angle to compete with Nikon's AF-S 14-24mm 2.8G or perhaps a sharper version of the 16-35, which is killed in sharpness by the now rather old 17-40 f4L for those who don't want a bulbous fisheye like front element

I would say doubtful. I think it's still meant to be a DSLR, in which case it would certainly have the EF mount on it, assuming it would still be an APS-C type sensor inside

A slightly larger than the G15 with EFV and interchangable lens - including an adaptor for EF/EF-S lenses?  I'd be interested if


1. Good and fast AF
2. Reasonable ISO (up to 800 or 1600 usable)
