I think this is pretty awesome. Aps-c and a 35mm f/2 FOV in a tiny body.  That's all I need canon! Now if it's 599$ with body and 25mm f/2, I'll buy it at launch but I doubt that price tag knowing canon.

Looks like being very similar to the Panasonic GF1 and GX1 in size and style.

A good thing.  IMHO.

I like the knurled ring around the shutter button... looks like an input scroller!, could be a nice design touch.

Would hate to lose the EOS control dial though, perhaps it's on the back vertically (like the old EOS iX?)

EF / EF-s lenses?  APS-C sensor?  On chip phase detection AF?

Could be awesome.

Full frame would be too big in my opinion.  Handling seems very along formula that has been successful for every other mirrorless manufacturer (PENS, GF's, 1's etc)

Can't wait until monday for some solid info!

It's not that bad, but I'm going to need to see more. Lets just hope it has a big sensor, & a cheap EF-mount adapter.

No EVF, no built in flash.  Looks very 1st generation mirrorless (e.g. GF1, EP-1) ; why can't Canon learn from others rather than having to reinvent the wheel? 

This line of cameras will live or die based upon the range of EF-M lenses; the 22mm f/2 STM looks like a great start (assuming image quality is up-to-par), but it will need a lot more in the same vein and quickly in order to succeed. 

Any guesses as to what the strange device on the front right of the camera is (above what is presumably the lens release button)? Just a IR remote receiver/self timer LED?

I hope this is a fake. I can't imagine Canon bringing out a camera in this styledominated market looking like this. For example, the colourdifference between body and lens is awful. It looks like a bad photoshop.

The only things I am interested in:

- image quality
- image quality
- image quality
- manual mode including video (add video to my existing EOS bodies)
- availability of an full featured adaptor (to use existing EF/EF-S lenses)
- APS-C sized sensor (to have 16mm equiv UW for photography and video)

Who matters if it is retro or not, if the design is good or bad. It should work
to achieve the IMAGES I IMAGINE because the camera is WITH ME ...

SLR Lounge mentions that it has no EVF.. if true, it will be a big bummer.  :-X


The rumours going back months have suggested a budget model first and potentially a higher end one with EVF latter so I'm not supprized.

Not sure it is APS-C ....... its an EF-M lens ..... probably the same sensor as the G1X...... so a 1.85 crop factor

It certainly won't be called "M", since it's a more direct competitor to Leica's system than the Olympus OM was back in the 70s, and Leica gave them huge grief over their original name of "Olympus M". If the Japanese text says the name "M" is part of the rumor, this alone tends to discredit it.

As for the ugliness, it sure is, but there's no evidence either Canon or Nikon understand how much damage the ugliness of their cameras is doing to their businesses.

Indeed, I'm supprized that no system besides m43 has managed to offer a relatively compact prime in this range with f/2 or better.

Look again, it says EOS M on the top....

People can photoshop things... then again it is not as easy (or worthwhile) to do something this elaborate, and high res. Fakes are usually low res where the cloned borders are not easily discernable.

I think it's real...

(It's sometimes the ones who don't know photoshop that well, that say, "Oh thats photoshopped"...)

Why would canon reuse an old part number?
