I have a EOS M3 and love the little thing. I bought it only because it was a great deal the one thing I'd like to know is how do you get by without a view finder outdoors.
Indoors the LCD is fine but outside I have to be honest its hard to see the image.

I keep mine on full brightness so haven't really had an issue with it. Although when I mostly used it was on my holiday which had very gloomy weather.

I love my M3 as a compact camera that is better/more flexible than an camera phone. I recently took it to Alaska with me planning to use it with a 100-400 for more reach. I ended up mostly keeping with my 5D3. For wildlife the speed is simply irreplaceable. The M3 does better in camera HDR than the 5D3, but it doesn't save the 3 RAW's for you to work with on your own. If you shoot bracketed exposures, it's just plain too slow for HDR shots. Earlier in the year it was my primary camera for a family trip to the Caribbean and it worked awesome for that trip! It's about the right tool for the job!

A few from the UK. I like what this little camera can do considering the size.

I had the original EOS-M back in 2013, but got rid of it after only 9 months (along with my 7D and EF-S lenses) when I decided to give M4/3 a try. Since I had got an awesome deal on the M, and most of my lenses had been bought used, I didn't loose too much on the sale. I did end up losing a LOT more when I bailed out of M4/3 18 months later :oops: At least I was smart enough to hang onto my 6D and EF lenses. ;-)a

I now have a G5X, and G3X for compact carry always or travel but just really missed the M. The G3X and G5X are nice, but looking back at the shots I took with the M, they just don't compare.

So, after serious thought and hours of interwebbing, I decided to sell my G3X to fund getting the M3. I really don't need the zoom range of the G3X for travel and in those instances when I do need a longer lens with the M3, I can put my EF-S 55-250mm STM on and have a 400mm equiv so it gets me really close.

The M3, EF-M 18-55mm, and EF/EF-M adapter arrived today. Mix and match new body, white box lens, and 2nd party adapter for a total of $575 and I am very excited to have an "M" again.

Now looking for a good deal on the 22mm and 11-22mm lenses to complete the kit.

Hoping to get out this weekend and take some shots and start adding to this thread.

A couple from my recent tour around the Western Mediterranean. The first one was taken in Malaga, Spain. The second is a random door I found walking around Cannes, France. (The door wasn't walking, I was :))

One of the reasons I bought the M3 was for my motorcycle trips, first shots from the road on a ride I took yesterday...

Apart from megapix is there a great deal of difference feature wise between the M3 and M10? Have to say I was completely unaware of it's existence and only stumbled on it while looking for an M3 on ebay.

Some features the M3 has compared to the M10 are:
- Exposure compensation dial on camera top
- Hot shoe for flash or electronic view finder
- More function buttons on rear of camera
- Focus peaking (if you use manual focus)
- External microphone jack
- Different grip (which I prefer on M3)
- M3 is heavier by a small amount
- Screen on M3 can be tilted where you can see it from below (ex. holding camera overhead)

These are the most obvious versus other possible firmware variances.

Thanks for the reply Gart, it doesn't look I'd be missing much by choosing the M10 over the 3 and it's half the price too.
