New EOS M This Week? [CR1]
« on: September 16, 2013, 03:08:46 PM »

Various reports

We’ve received various reports of a possible EOS M announcement this week. We’ll keep an eye on our inbox if something does come to fruition.


Note: I am currently in Ireland and Italy (not at the same time) and may not be as quick with the information for the next few weeks.

don't you worry.
Knowing Canon for many years now ... if they announce anything soon, it will be disappointing anyway. :-)

Sounds promising.  If it has:
1. the 70D's sensor with dual pixel af
2. an electronic view finder
3. size similar to the original M (With an EVF it will have to be larger)
I think most people will be happy.  Though there are some that will complain no matter what is released. 

On my would-be-nice list is the hope they style it after one of their retro cameras like the canonette or something.

Realistically I want DPAF, an EVF, and a little grip for my fingers (it should stick out at least as much as the shortest pancake).

Unrealistically I want all that with all the features of the 1Dx and the 400f5.6 update in EF-M.

I agree. 1 pancake is not enough, I'm still hungry :).
Good grip with LP-E6 battery in it would be great too.
FF + primes !

Does anyone else want to be able to connect a remote shutter trigger?  Wired would be fine.  Or did I just miss the slot on my current model M?

It doesn't even have to be pancake; I would be very happy with a "portrait" length EF-M fast prime.

On my would-be-nice list is the hope they style it after one of their retro cameras like the canonette or something.

The previous rumours all hinted to the first EOS-M announcement being a replacement of the current body.  I would thus not expect an EVF.  Because the AF on the original M handicapped it, I hope Canon will be introducing a DPAF sensor.  I would also be interested in seeing a successor to the G1X with DPAF.

That is my second complaint about the current model.  Once Canon introduces an EOS-M body with decent AF and a wired shutter release socket, I will be very interested.

DPAF? Sorry, that one has got me. I came up with:
Dual Payload Attachment Fitting & Division of Planning, Analysis, and Finance

Awww, lighten up! What an outlook on life!

Dual Pixel AF like in the 70D  :P

I think they should give one away with each purchase of that lens :-)
