Since Sony came out A7 series...I'm no longer getting excited about Canon M2.

I just don't see myself cancel my pre-order on A7 + Zeiss 55 for this ::)

Just got back from Italy with both the 5DIII and the EOS-M.... M was useful indoors and at night... but totally useless in daylight. EVF would be nice... how much bigger/heavier would it be????.... even a old style "range finder" would make it more useful in daylight. What am I missing????

Correct...it is ( as is any camera) useless in daylight for any serious photography with no EVF...It would be great if it was just a decent quality clip-on VF... then the camera would not have to be any larger. Perhaps the comment above is on the Mark, that this camera is aimed at the consumer market and not meant for the enthusiast market.

<p>Apparently this launch was delayed until the new year and was originally planned for August/September of 2013.</p>

Putting the 70D-type AF in it should make a huge difference. It might sell now. Seems a shame to miss the holiday season though, very odd delay, as this is the sort of gear that actually might be more of a stocking stuffer than an L lens or 1 series body or the like.

  • Great gear is good. Good technique is better.

The new camera won’t be much of a departure from the current EOS M, although it will be smaller and provide a better AF experience. It’s expected the 20mp sensor from the 70D will be present in the new camera.</p>

smaller and better AF?  sign me up, i'll take two.

Only the recent price changes really got the EOS-M moving, as a cheap and relatively compact APS-C camera. Since the AF technology in the 70D came out it was always a given it'd be useful here in the next M, but I doubt the price is going to be hardly reasonable.

When priced back up to other mirrorless options it is back to being a meh-non-option.

Sizewise the issue really is the lens bulge (which you can't do much about ...) rather than the body size.
Hurry up Canon and do something with your sensors! :P

There is no shame in copying Fuji when sales are falling. It...would...sell!

And make sales fall even further! LOL. You forgot Fuji is selling poorly and has nearly non-existent market shares.

might sell a few copies if they bring it at USD 299,- right at launch this time.

Me? No buy. Me wants FF sensor and EVF. :-)

have an IR conversion done on my M.

Excellent idea, I did this to one of my 5DMK II's, I think all round it would work better on the M.

if Canon again "forgets" to put a grip on the EOS-M II, you Mr. Franiec might come to the rescue. Grip for the current EOS-M can be had now: http://www.sansmirror.com/newsviews/franiec-grips.html

Canon could do a lot worse than introducing something like the Panasonic GM1, except better, assuming they also (simultaneously?) introduced something like/better than the Panasonic GX7 or GH3.

What is the number #1 reason to buy mirrorless again?

Perhaps the comment above is on the Mark, that this camera is aimed at the consumer market and not meant for the enthusiast market.

That's what I'm thinking. The point-and-shoot market is withering away, and with it, the revenue that drives development of the DSLR line. As camera phones continue to improve in quality and saturate the market, Canon might be looking to position consumer-level mirrorless cameras as the new point-and-shoot equivalent. The image quality easily beats camera phones (for now), and interchangeable lenses will make consumers feel a clear separation between phone and camera.

For enthusiasts and pros, this might seem disappointing, but if this is actually the strategy, we should all hope it's wildly successful -- for the sake of funding new technology in DSLRs (and maybe someday, pro-level mirrorless).
