Does anyone else think this camera is so damn ugly? Seriously i wonder what they were thinking. The nikon mirror less cameras look better than this.

Wow, that looks tiny! 43mm filter thread on that lens makes the body about the same size as the Lumix GF3. And the sensor looks bigger, too! If there are a few fast lenses and an EVF available, and the price isn't totally outrageous, I could see myself buying one.

Edit: Actually, on second look, the sensor appears about the same size. I guess we'll see on Monday, anyway.

Hey wait a second... I don't see a direct print button.  Maybe there's one on the side.

yeah, it's boring...

I mean, what does it have going for it?  Why would I choose this over a NEX an X-Pro or an OM-D?  The only thing that is has going for it (at least for me), is EF compatibility, but a small camera with huge lenses is not very enticing.   

And if it is APS-C it's going to be a huge camera.

Seriously ... why does it matter how a camera looks ?? Then for that case, I guess you guys don't use DSLR's at all .. coz they are butt ugly ...  ??

If you really want the cache... Get a Leica M-9.

 I'm curious if this camera will accept the use of a 600rt speedlight, and if the new transmitter will be somehow supported.

This looks perfect for me IF it does have the t4i/650's autofocus and iso performance.  A modern aps-c canon sensor should really outperform m4/3 on iso - and yet this new canon appears to be as small as the smallest m4/3.

Other things i'm anxious to know about:

1. They need a 35 1.4 prime - and it can't be gigantic.  Going to want to see some reviews of ef-m lenses as well.  Certainly the sony nex is really limited (to me) by the lack of good primes.     (They have that 1 carl zeiss 24mm but it's huge. )

2. Hopefully there's no shutter lag compromise by virtue of the size? (probably unlikely to be an issue)   

3. Definitely hope for a good external EVF

I have a fuji xpro 1 in the first 30 days of ownership.  The fuji 35mm 1.4 lens is excellent.  Image quality is superb.  Has a mediocre built in EVF.  But I trust canon more overall and will consider returning the xp1 if the canon comes with a 35 1.4 and has phase detect autofocus.

A note  to the "full frame" crowd:  Fast autofocus lenses for FF would be too big!  APS-C seems to be the perfect size for mirrorless cameras as it gives you virtually all of the ISO performance of FF, keeps the camera package small enough and certainly provides plenty of resolution in the files. 

So far, for the real world, this appears to be a great offering from a great camera company. 


PS couldn't care less about the look.  I'll take pictures of unused leica MPs if I want to see pretty cameras.

The only thing I am worried about with the EF adapter is lenses like the newer 70-200 2.8 IS II will suck the poor battery dry in no time at all. 

70-200 2.8 IS II ??? 70-200 2.8 IS II ??? Why would you want to use a big/bulky/heavy 70-200 2.8 IS II on a small/light camera ???

Guessing hotshoe/EVF mount combined like I think it was Olympus did?

well it´s not a  beauty... but that´s not soooo important.
if you "guys" need some fancy stuff why don´t you buy a nice small handbag for your walks on main street?    ;D

what i find depressing is that it seems not only to look boring.. it is boring.

so canon rumors sources are wrong about aps-c ?

well what a suprise  :D

ps: you are 100% sure you measured the lens cap diameter as 43mm and not the lens diameter as 43mm?

It still certainly has the potential to be better than any mirrorless fuji x, sony nex, leica x2 and any m4/3.  I wouldn't say that's boring. 

Well maybe it's boring that they didn't invent a new autofocus system that would allow for small full frame autofocus lenses (a la the old Contax G?)  The fact that it is not wildly aesthetically overbuilt like a leica m9 means it will be lighter and less expensive?
