It's interesting how many photos this toy can do on one battery. Assuming it's pocket size, the battery won't be big. It will run in live view mode for all the time and if you put bigger EF lens onto it, the same battery has to run AF and sometimes IS as well.

Don't know how it compares to the size of the Pentax K-01, but the K-01 uses the same battery as the medium format Pentax 645D, so it's possible it might take the same battery as the 650d/T4i

"if i fits i sits"?  ;D

No optional EVF? I wonder when they'll have a version with integral EVF - there were rumored images of such a thing. That would be REAL tempting.

I'd like to know whether the new EF-M lenses will fit on a DSLR.  The 22mm F2 would be great on a crop body.

I would think not. The lens would have to be inside the lens mount on the camera due to the shorter mount to sensor distance. That's why the adapter for EF lenses.

If it's OK with EF and EF-S adapter will be very nice and interesting...

The EOS T4i uses a EP-E8 battery and the EOS-M uses a LP-E12 battery  http://www.canonpricewatch.com/product/03943/Canon-LP-E12-for-EOS-M-price.html

And it's weight, so the capacity will be a half smaller than the one in T4i.

no built in flash?? Rarely use it on the D series, but if the goal is convenience and compact form factor who wants to carry around an external?

Not possible.

The EF-M lenses will not be able to focus on DSLRs due to the difference in distance from the lens to the sensor.

That's why they need an EF/EF-S to EF-M adapter - not because the electronics are different, but to maintain distance to the sensor from the lens.

About the size and weight of a Sony NEX 5n.

Here's the specs:
Canon - 108.6mm x 66.5mm x 32.3mm, 298 grams with battery and memory card
Sony - 110.8mm x 58.8mm x 38.2mm, 269 grams with battery and memory card

The NEX 5n sells for $599.99 without lens and $699.99 with 18-55mm lens. We will find out Canon's prices tomorrow.

Either the EF 85mm f/1.8 (425 grams) or EF 100 f/2.0 (460 grams) would be a good combination with the EF M. Add the EM 22mm f/2.0 and I'd have all the lenses I'd need. YMMV

This (NEX 5n) is the camera that this EOS M is being targeted at, not the NEX 7.

The big issue with me is how does this compare with the G1X or the next G camera?  As a tourist who wants to take good photos, I like that I could use my existing lenses with this camera.  But, I have been to quite a few events where non-professionals couldn't bring in cameras with detectable lenses.  Would the extra quality of some photos, override the inability to bring in this camera to other events?  I'm leaning towards no.

I will still bring my 5Dm2 on my travels anyways.

not at all!

Rebel T4i/EOS 650D: LP-E8, 7.2V, 1120mAh = 8,1 Wh
EOS-M: LP-E12, 7.2V, 875mAh = 6.3 Wh
= 78% of the LP-E8

Even if the shutter mechanism and fps are identical between T4i and EOS-M, power consumption of the EOS-M will be lower as no mirror needs to be flipped all he time. This will be partially offset by the need to constantly use the LCD as viewfinder to compose images. Overall, I would expect a fairly similar number of shots per charge from both cameras.

That's why they need an EF/EF-S to EF-M adapter - not because the electronics are different, but to maintain distance to the sensor from the lens.

EF/EF-S lens to EF-M camera simply needs an increased distance to the camera a simple extension tube will suffice.

EF-M lens to EF camera needs a decrased distance to the image plane. This is only possible by introducing additional lenses like in the 1.4x or 2x Extenders. So it is kind of possible but there might be no EF-M lens which you would mount to an EF-camera.

Given what has gone on with Canon pricing recently I think this will be quite an expensive package but I would love to be proved wrong. Just a cut down version of 650d so why bother 'cutting down'? Unless they get the price/spec balance right then there is too much competition out there for a smaller camera to take nice photos and nobody is currently 'wedded' to the lenses.

I skipped n the t4i because of the poor implementation of autofocus in video.  Any chances this mirror less system may work better for video?

When should we expect sample images and video?
