BH lists the new EVF2 at $249 and says it is compatible with the Canon cameras using the EVF1.

If you buy an M6 (an M5 with no EVF) and then the additional EVF it's more expensive than the M5 which has a built in EVF.....because this makes sense.

So confused!

Yeah, you could just get the M5 then when you wanted a smaller rig, break off the built-in EVF. A chisel should do the trick. Then, you could reattach it with some silly putty when you wanted the EVF again.

Easy. Cheaper too!

;)

Oh, and maybe some people don't want an EVF. How does the cost compare in that case?

Does this accept the Canon EVF-DC1 as a viewfinder?

That is a good question. If it can, it would mean you can choose between a viewfinder that tilts or a smaller, lighter viewfinder - and that wouldn't necessarily seem silly on Canon's part. DC2 may be an addition to range rather than replacement for DC1.

The only silly thing in the EVF department is, that DC1 is ugly as hell and does not much fit the M6 design, especially the silver version ...

Why are you confused? If you really want the viewfinder, you buy the M5.

some people do own EVF-DC1 already. it is a very valid question, whether it will work on M6 or not. And DC1 tilts, DC2 does not. Also, used DC1 in mint condition can be bought around 125 Euro where i live ...

CR guy - maybe you can confirm with Canon and/or your sources, whether or not DC1 also works on M6. please, thx?!

My guess ...

If you don't want an EVF, M6 is your choice. And it's cheaper than M5.

If you want an EVF, many people will probably choose M5 and be happy with that.

If you want a detachable EVF, you will have a specific need/want in that regard, so Canon thinks it can probably extract a premium for it.

When you think about it that way, you could almost start to wonder if Canon is trying to make money :)

Hmm, in comparison to M5, it has also a bit smaller - 3.0" vs 3.2", but much lower-res LCD - 1.04 vs 1.62 Mdots. Hopefully it's good/detailed enough for its size.

OK, if I calculate correctly and the screen aspect ratio is 3:2, it is 500 vs 590 PPI, which still seems to be more than enough ...

In the UK, M6+DC2 is marginally cheaper (£948) than current street price of M5 (£969)
But substantially cheaper than the launch price of the M5 (£1049) which a lot of retailers are still charging (even Amazon).

The M5 in the UK comes with the 'free' EF lens adaptor.
The M6 does not.

Now that the camera is officially announced by Canon, why don't you just ask Canon this question. then you have the information from the most reliable source one can think of? They should be able to answer this. Everyone else can't say this without a manual or the camera itself.

According to The Imaging Resource, the DC1 also works on the M6

that was all available on the M3 and DC1. it's probably not EVF dependent.
