Poll: What will be the price of first EOS M?
« on: July 20, 2012, 05:38:32 PM »
So everybody's here excited about news on new mirrorless toy from Canon. Having read almost all posts, I haven't found any topic about the price. So let's speculate - what will be the initial price of the EOS M body? I think it would be set between 599$ and 799$.

Edit: Price anticipation in US in US$, or in UK in pounds, or in mostly Europe in Euro :) You know what I mean...

I figure the 400-599 number since there are plans to bring an upscale mirorless within the next year?  that lets Canon slot this one in at say 550 and another model can come in at 700 and still be below the Rebels.

If that was the case, I'd consider to trade used 7d for this, if IQ would be good.

Figure a reasonable price and double it.
$599 X 2 = $1195 for the kit with 22mm lens and M to EF adapter..

You think they can make it 300$ above the T4i kit and a 100$ above 60d kit?
Looking at initial poll votes we can see, how unpredictable this product is :)

I voted 4-599.

This would price it reasonably within reach for power shot users, without conflicting too much with the rebel line.

Any higher, without external manual controls, and it's a dead duck.  Of course I fully anticipate that the 4-599 will be dollars in the US and pounds in the UK.

Canonwatch.com sees a correlation between announcement of EOS M and price of G12 (from 799$ to 709$).

Very possibly.  If the G1X is priced at $800, the mirrorless APS-C with interchangable lens ($200) plus M to EF Adapter ($200) will cost a bundle.  I do not expect a body only version, since a lens or at least M to EF adapter is needed and no one has any lenses that fit it right now. I would not consider a body only at first.

Compare it with other Mirrorless Cameras, not DSLR's.  Thats why Canon is releasing a mirrorless, they seem to be made of gold, and Canon is not going to let Sony or Fujii out price them.  Unfortunately, Nikon 1 with its tiny sensor V1 does not compete.

Unless the new Canon is aps-c and costs $600 with lens, I will heavily lean towards the new Sony NEX-F3 at $600 with kit lens.

I'm expecting $600-800 based on G1X pricing. I wouldn't be surprised to see $1000 though; y'know, pulling a Nikon 1. ;)

why can't we change our vote? I voted thinking that it was a G1X sensor and now that I know it is APS-C, I want to change my vote.

I could check this option while creating a poll. Now, while editing the poll, I don't see this option anymore :(
You can vote second time to lower the weight of the mistake.

Too expensive for what it is, no matter what. The most exciting thing about this is the body cap...
