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.

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.

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

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.

"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?
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? ;)

I dont really agree with the comments above.

I use my cameras professionally and love my lenses. I really like the mirrorless market too and bought a twin lens kit NEX 5N because it was cheap and the IQ is much better than the 18mp sensor from Canon. But the DSLR is a dream to use in comparison, although its good and small I find the AF jumps around and focuses on things I don't want it to and I miss the shot. I also like a proper viewfinder not the new EVFs.

I like the DSLR form factor and have all the lenses to boot this is a good compromise for people like me who want something small when you don't want to carry the big gun cameras or want to be less conspicuous.

Although I hate that sensor it is a dog! Reason why I was so disappointed with my 7D and sold it.

It would seem Canon is hanging on for an unhealthy amount of time with this tech. Even if it is Digic 5 what exactly is the difference? It processes more data? Yet the 650D has been said to be less sharp than the 600D.

But I like the idea of this small DSLR. I really dont like EVFs. This could be a good compromise. Shame they didnt put any new tech in it.
