The weight is in the panasonic G3 class - amazing. And the lens mount looks h-u-g-e!

The one thing I do NOT like about it is that the "grippy material" looks like 1000D/1100D, which turns into a soap bar if your hands are sweaty/wet...hopefully it is better, but I would not bet on it.

"EOS-b"????

What customer is going to buy a "b" camera?
i.e. how many will ask "So where is the EOS-a?" and want to buy that?

By the way the fact that this camera (that none is expecting and none asked for) is coming out before both 70D and 7DII is a clear sign of how unimportant for Canon is the entire Gearhead/Pro-amateur/Semipro/Pro market.. T_T
+1

And don't forget how they "stunned" us all with the EOS M, instead of giving us something to compete with Fuji's and Olympus's mirrorless systems. ;D

And the resulting wonderment of Canon executives as to why the EOS M hasn't been at least a good seller.

If Canon would just drop the built-in flash and provide a "Kelvin" white balance setting, I'll sure be considering this camera as a viable replacement for my brace of 30D's.

Pretty good value for the money, I'd say.

As small as it is, what this camera needs is a 20mm 2.8 ef-s pancake as a companion lens.

Funny, that was my very FIRST impression when I read the announcement this morning.  What happened to the "a" model.

When I bought my first DSLR, a T3i,  I was so concerned with the weight and size.  I thought the smaller it was the more opportunities I would have to carry it and use it. 

I found out quickly that once you go to a certain size, a size that can no longer fit into your pocket or purse, the size is not that important.  So now I just wish I had a 7D because there isn't anywhere I could take my Rebel that I wouldn't be able to take a 7D.

BUT, like a child (and we are all guilty) you can tell a first time DSLR purchaser anything you want,  they are still going to buy what makes them feel comfortable, such as size and high megapixels.  I would have been so excited for this camera 2 years ago, so I believe there is definitely a market for it, without question.

The EOS M is indeed a failure, both technically and in sales. The latter has even been confirmed by Masaya Maeda - managing director at Canon.

Japan is the only country where the EOS M is selling "well".

I don't get why they do not re-use "N" or "V" model names? (N for Nano) "B" sounds "second-grade".

I'm sure there is a market for anything, if it's electronic, costs a lot of money and it serves practically no purpose people will buy it, it's the entire premise of smartphones.

Personally, I'm interested in either great DSLRs or great compact cameras, stuff that you can put in your pocket unlike things like the Fuji's. My taste is not the one of the million buyers of entry level DSLRs so I'm pretty underwhelmed by a dwarf DSLR that could go with a massive 70-200 2.8II. If they wanted to lure more peeps in my opinion they shouldve remove the overall ugly dwarf DSLR look and make it smoother and less bumpy.

But anyway, long live market and revenues!

So...like we had 1D and 1Ds.....I guess the higher megapixel, full-stupid version of EOS-b will be named ...EOS-bs? ;)
