Why so much hate on this camera? From first impressions, it's close to what we've been asking for.
Small lightweight body. I think it looks fine, simplistic, and friendly to the consumer.
APS-C sensor at least, thats good.
A small fast prime. F/2 is nice.
Possibly touchscreen that works as good as the t4i. Maybe.
Possibly On-sensor Phase AF. Like the t4i.
A hot shoe for running accessories. A EVF possibly.
Possibly a EF adapter if you really want to put a 200 F/2 on it.
Even better if the kit with body & 22mm f/2 is around the 599$. That'd be a hard competitor in the market.
I think this will be my little buddy in my pocket, if the price is right.
