It may seem contradictory for me to say this given how slow Canon have been with refreshing things like the 5D2->5D3, still waiting for 7D mark 2, etc. ... but I would have expected Canon to make an M2 or M3 with the 70D dual pixel AF months ago. They're just letting potential sales burn away imo (well so long as it was priced right too against the competition which in itself is not expected these days lol)
Hurry up Canon and do something with your sensors! :P

Hi,
    IMHO, may be a hybrid DSLR will be the answer… just installed an EVF on the prism, so when the mirror went up, the EVF will turn on. There will be a physical switch that will lock the mirror in place when in mirrorless mode.

     So, those who want a small body, go for the M and those who want a bigger form factor or OVF, go for the hybrid DSLR.

     Have a nice day.

When shooting in eagles sub-freezing temps with my 1D X, the LCD stopped working...but the OVF didn't, and I kept on shooting.

The Olympus E-M1 is rated for -10°C (minus ten degrees Celsius); the FUJIFILM X-T1 as well. But the Lord of DSLR's (i.e. the Canon EOS 1D X) is only rated to 0°C .... bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha  ;)

Umm do you have a 1DX and did it let you down when you were using it in below freezing conditions and now do you use an E-M1??? No.

Then why do you care? Your arguments are almost childlike.

Almost? Just almost? I was aiming for completely.  :'(

But seriously, would you take a 1DX to Antarctica for that once-in-a-lifetime, all-important assignment, knowing the camera is not rated for that environment?
Happily ignoring the laws of physics and the rules of photography to create better pictures.

I have been using mirror less and EVF now for 3 years. First with the Fhji X100 and now XE2. I just LOVE the EVF. Mirror or no mirror has no bearing to me. But I love the IQ, lightness and the benefits of EVF big big time.

Yes.

Edit - I'd take a 7D too if I had to. I find Canon bodies to be very reliable and robust. My mate trekked the Himalayas with a rebel T2i with no issues (the kit lens might have taken a few knocks though!).

Absolutely.  Ole Jørgen Liodden used a gripped 7D in Antarctica for 3.5 weeks, and it worked just fine through rain, snow and cold.  A non-gripped 5DII did fine as well, as did (unsurprisingly) the 1DsIII he brought. 



Compared to the Olympus E-M1, the 1D X would deliver much better AF (especially for moving subjects), better battery life, better lens selection, the option of longer lenses, better image stabilization for long lenses (in-body IS loses effectiveness as as focal length increases), better high ISO performance (fast shutter speeds to freeze action often mean raising ISO even in decent light), etc. 

As I stated, Canon's environmental specs seem conservative (a sort of CYA).  Speaking of a non sequitur regarding specifications, the RRS TQC-14 tripod is rated to hold 25 lbs.  In reality, it can hold just a little bit more than it's specified capacity:

<p>The 2 models will be split into entry level and prosumer. Canon has said they’re committed to the EOS M system and will continue to develop cameras and lenses. Perhaps this will once again be the “relaunch” we were told was going to happen with the EOS M2, which turned out not to be the case.</p>

Good news!  I'm very happy with my EOS M1 as a light weight complement to my 6D.  I'm interested to see what the M3 and M4 bring to the table.

Yep, ditto. Love my little M, and whoever first brings touchscreen (hopefully articulated) FF with good AF and hopefully the possibility of speedbooster is going to win me over, but at this point I am banking on Sony over the surprisingly lethargic Canon.

I was very close to buying a eos m with 18-55mm kit lens when it was around 330usd here in norway, but i decided against it. I'm still considering buying a 22mm ef-m lens becasue they are so cheap now, and then wait for the release of the next M.

What kind of lenses do you think the new potential eos m cameras will be sold with? A new version of the 18-55 perhaps?

Is that you?  ;)

Nope, that's RRS owner Joe Johnson.  After I bought the TQC-14, though, I couldn't resist trying it out myself!  :D

Looks like Canon is pasting feathers on a turkey hoping it will fly.  They ought to lay off the whole group that
worked on this - and then fire the management team that approved it.
