I'm reasonably ok with this. But I'm anxiously waiting for confirmation of an external electronic viewfinder. For any semi-serious photographer, this is a "must have". Very curious about those camera strap connectors. Looking forward to more details.
I think this body is going to be pitched at the bottom end of the market, so I am unsure about an EVF. The only thing that is a little incongruous if this is pitched at the low end is the lack of a pop-up flash.
I think this body will be Canon's "gateway drug" into the EOS system. They will want to keep it affordable. The only problem I see with that is that at the low end people do not want to buy separate speedlites.
I doubt we will see a 40mm pancake with an EF-M mount for instance - Canon will probably rather want people to buy an EF mount lens plus adapter, so that when they start thinking of a DLSR, they already have glass they can use on an EOS DSLR.
Once they have a more feature-rich body available, this system will be of more interest to enthusiasts.
