From what I heard the EOS-M comes with a small flashgun as part of a package with the 18-55 or the 22mm

Yes, but the point of a mirrorless is not having to bring a lot of gear with me :)


Why?  :o

I would love to have good IQ in a compact package for when I travel or I just can't/won't bring a full sized DSLR with me. But still, mirrorless cameras are not quite pocketable.

There are mirrorless cameras that are targeted towards enthusiasts, but this isn't one of them. Canon are probably trying to figure out how to do it without cannibalising their DSLR sales. Whatever the reason for their late arrival in this market, they are a late comer to what is already a very crowded field -- Fuji, Sony, Olympus and Panasonic already have better cameras with better options for lenses.


Yes, but why in the world for women? :D

The ultimate dismissal: "targeted to women'. Nice.

I know a female wedding photog, multiple EOS bodies, 5D or better, a mamiya 645 or three, I think at least one of them is an AFD or DF or whatever, and a 45MP back.
Puts my kit to shame...
Too much gear, too little space.

I'm sure Canon will reap their reward from boyfriends/husbands buying the EOS-M for their loved ones. It's a good way to bribe them and freeing up more funds....

Just to point out - the Canon EOS-M is not "made for women". This is a misunderstanding based on western media outlets mis-interpreting comments made in Japan by Canon. Canon believes the cameras will appeal to women in the JAPANESE market, but that does not mean it will be marketed this way to the rest of the world (and not because of features or styling, but simply Japanese women are considered to have more disposable income).

For example, the EOS Rebel cameras - they are called Kiss in Japan...

Hello everyone,

Just had a rather interesting day spent with a couple of the Canon reps.. Basically iv got to play with the new EOS-M.. Build quality is very good, it has a touch screen which is pretty much the same as a iPhone ( very good even tho I strongly dislike touch screens on cameras ).. The only downside to today was I wasn't able to try it with either the standard kit lens or with the EF adaptor.. Ill uploaded some pics.. If you have any questions just ask..

Update.. For some reason I cant upload the images to Canon Rumors so Ill add them to my flickr
http://www.flickr.com/photos/66876906@N06/

Nice. This will be my mirrorless camera.

The camera was released today in Japan, and sample pics from new owners are starting to appear on Flickr...check 'em out:

ETA: Looks like it's capable of some very nice results if you put a good lens on it...
