This product exists simply to make the Rebel T4i look good. If these are $399 with the EF adapter included (dream on) then OK people will have them as backups. Otherwise they fall into the uncanony valley of not for pockets and not for pro's. A gewgaw best liquidated as raffle prizes in the hope of selling lenses.

Its not for me. Thx.

Nor for me.

But, then again, none of the mirror less interchangeable lens cameras are of interest to me. (Don't like holding a camera body out a foot from my face squinting in the sun and the whole interchangeable lens thing seems to defeat the purpose of having a smallish alternative to a DSLR.)

Still I know I'm in the minority and not the target market for this camera. The Nikon 1 system seems to be selling very well, and this is clearly superior. If they can outsell Nikon and their lesser competitors (which I believe they will) this will be a huge success for Canon.

I'm truly confused as to the market for the mirror less cameras that fall between the G1X series and an SLR.

1. With any lens, it is not pocketable.
2. Requires company to make an entirely new set of lenses on a new mount.

What kind of customer is best suited for this niche?

I could see this as my second camera (I have a 7d).  APS-C and EF adapter sounds great as long as it's not overpriced.  I'm hearing that there's a lot of "Anti-DSLR" at venues and events where they see a 5d and say you can't bring it.  This camera could fit the bill perfectly.  Only thing I don't like so far (from what little info I've seen) is that there is no view finder.

HDR photos look best when I can't see them.

I have to say, I really don't understand the mirrorless DSLR concept. Who buys these things?

Also - is there a reason why Canon does not offer 720 at 30p video on any of their cameras? I don't need 1080, but I don't want 60p for some shots. Plus I would think you can shoot more on a card at 720/30.

Those of you who say there isn't a market for something like this, I disagree.
I'm currently using an S95 when we go on family trips, which I love.
Personally, there is no way I'd ever carry a DSLR with me.
If I would, there wouldn't be an issue in my mind.
Something like this would be a huge step up.
I'd love an EVF--maybe the rumored Fall release.

Am I the only who thinks the most exciting aspect of this is phase detect autofocus in a mirrorless system?

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?

Should be the same as the t4i as they have the same sensor and it is also using STM lenses.

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

(..)

+1 You are right!

It sound exciting but the results from the T4i/650D (same sensor as EOS M) in live view with STM lens show something else.

If you want "pocketable" get a smart-phone :)

Part of Canon's business is manufacturing and selling lenses. That's one of the ways they make money - Duh :)

Someone who wants a small/light camera and mainly uses primes between 22mm and 100mm. Beside the EF-M 22mm/f2.0 there are the  EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM, EF 40mm f/2.8 STM, EF 50mm f/1.8 II, EF 85mm f/1.8 USM and the EF 100mm f/2.0 USM.

If they were to front up with a decent, discreet EVF and a small triplet like the Perar below, I'd actually, surprising to myself, consider this.

How long does it usually take Canon cameras to come to market after they've been officially announced.

That's a sore point after the 1D-X fiasco.
