Like comparing a 5D Mk 3 to a T3i.
Market segmentation. Technical reasons – as pointed out above, size of the needed sensor and EVF. Cost – inclusion would necessitate too high a price for the M line.Canon might do that. But, why would it?
At this moment, you added FUD to this discussion. We do not know what Canon will do. Nor do we have enough information about the tech to guess at what cameras would work with this technology.
Blahhh haa, ha! FUD = Bull S**TMarket segmentation. Technical reasons – as pointed out above, size of the needed sensor and EVF. Cost – inclusion would necessitate too high a price for the M line.
