if i really wanted a compact and solid powerful camera.
i would go to OM-D from olympus. Not for an old sensor wrapped in new shell.
Most power comes here from the lens selection, which BTW makes it no pocketable anymore.
Let me re-quote myself: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.
If we had a couple of really simple lens designs, even if only manual focus, I think this could still be considered pocketable. The OM-D body is much larger (if it was full-frame, I'd forgive them).
I personally don't mind carrying around large cameras, as I still use medium format film, but it would be a handy addition if everything was "right."
And u think Eos-m is pocketable with all the adaptors.
who care if some body wanted shitty old sensor which fairly poor low light quality.
go ahed fan boy, buy two or more. At least canon might compensate the losses from 5d3.
