Yup. The quality to quantity ratio of the 22 is unmatched. I still have the original M, and it with the 22 is so easy to carry and produces amazingly good photos, even with that tired old 18MP sensor.I got the RP and RF 35mm thinking I could carry it around daily, but it's too big.
So I added a used M6 and EF-M 22mm. Much smaller.
I thought about selling the RP, but I can't bring myself to do it !
Rich you don't happen to live in Florida and by chance did a trip to Iceland in 2013 with Greg Downing by any chance. If so this is Whayne from Australia. If not sorry for bothering you.Would be nice to have an integrated EVF and better weather sealing, but otherwise will just keep my M5 and M6ii. Make great travel cameras an companion cameras for my larger Canon gear.
I dont realy understand why the M series is still necessary with the R. The RP is allready super small and could get cheaper in the near future. Why not replace any M camera with a RP?
Or they could build a RF camera with an APS-C Sensor... Shouldnt it be super easy to build small APS-C lenses for the R mount? So this could easily replace the M. Whats the necessary of this series?
An M5-II with the pop-up EVF from the latest patent please... And throw in IBIS too if it's not too much bother.
I think the "pop-up EVF from the latest patent" requires that the rear screen is a tilting type rather than a fully articulating one. (The eye-sensor, which detects when a face approaches the viewfinder is in the same assembly as the display, so you wouldn't want it to be possible to turn this inwards if an eye-sensor is mounted on it, as it would mean the EVF would be on permanently, using power, even when no one is looking at it.)
I do like my M5 for more casual shooting although I find it frustrating sometimes autofocus wise when reverting from my EOS R. I’m sure this would be addressed if Canon produce an M5 II.
Let Canon release a decent full-time zoom for such a camera, for example 15 (17) -70 / 2.8-4 and then there will be something to talk about with it
Nikon's Z series has an even larger diameter mount, and that hasn't stopped them producing a very well received mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor, the Z-50.
Yes but it is useless. As CANON has allready a mount, the M, and if they want to keep the price low, they should continue into the M for APSC ML.
