photoshopped? why would there be a filter spec on the lens if there were no threads?

Why PhotoShop out filter threads? I wonder if these are CAD renderings and not photographs and the draftsperson forgot to model the thread in the 3D model. Strange nobody caught it before publishing if that was the case.

Cameras aren't that big anyway, the real issue is lenses. How exactly does one fit a 70-200 down one's pants?

For me personally, two things this EOS M got better than the NEX 5N or F3 are the compatibility with Canon's Flash & Lenses, and also the menu is the Canon's user interface I've grown to be accustomed with.
I've been using NEX 5N several times, although it's a capable camera with great dynamic range, the user interface is an absolute pain.

that's more what I meant, meaning the photo was a rendered image rather than a real photo of the item.

Are you really considering going out with your EOS M and a EF 70-200 f/4L or a 135 f/2L mounted on it? ^_^
I'm not. :-)

Not enough buttons on it for me (I'm not a fan of touch screen controls on cameras)...$1,000 for the basic kit and the EF adapter is a little steep.

As an owner of FF DSLRs and an S100, I really don't see much point in picking one of these up. Now, if it was an AE-1-inspired design with an EVF and a sprinkling of customizable buttons...I'd be much more tempted...

Actually the AF looked pretty snappy from what I've seen, Keep in mind the image sensor has Phase Detect AF on it, theoretically even using a converter the AF should be pretty decent...

The 22mm is the compact lens of the group really... And unlike Sony at least the focal length makes sense as a walkaround general purpose standard prime...

That said, you're right, the lens weight is in line with the Sony

Please link me the video you saw. I was hoping for snappy video, but even the Canon Europe promotional video shows mediocre AF and a back-and-forth racking effect reminiscent of my old E-P1. And that was the only one I've seen where they use the shutter button to issue focus. All other videos I've seen use the god-awful-slow touch-to-shoot focus. I really was optimistic about this camera and especially the 22/2 lens, but the AF I've seen so far has left me a little confused about the effectiveness of their implementation of on-sensor PD-AF. Nikon's is fast and doesn't twitch near focus from what I've seen. What video am I missining?

My hope is that what I've seen so far is a serious firmware issue and that it will be solved by release. The Canon Europe promo video only shows actual AF Aquisition ONCE, at the very beginning and at close focus. They skip the Aquisition screen on all other shots. Maybe they we trying to hide the immaturity of the firmware during promo shooting.

What are you talking about? I'm essentially pulling off this feat every day I wear pants! :lol:

IMO (remember that, just my opinion based on the specs published) this is not worth discussing unless you are a compact user. A rich compact user. Absolutely nothing new on here, innovation seems to not be in Canons book these days. Also brings a whole new load of lenses that need buying, and then selling when said users upgrade to EOS bodies...

At the moment i use a 5d mkii and the Nex7. Sigma primes on the Nex are superb. This new camera from Canon,Without the EVF and Tri-Nav system found on the Sony Nex7, doesn't really cut it. As soon as they have something similar then I will consider it.

For mountain, outdoor photography the weight saving is really important and the ability to control a camera via dials while looking through a view finder with the histogram on view is amazing. I really hope they do come out with something like this in the future to give the Sony Nex7 some competition... Im sure they will!

The only thing slightly interesting about this camera, to me, is the Hybrid AF...

What was Canon thinking with that kind of price? Hoping their name alone can sell the product?

Sheesh. I'll stick with my m4/3 for a compact backup. Cause honestly... I wouldnt want to use ANY of my EF lenses with a body that small, makes no sense. My Sigma 50 and Samyang 14 belong on cameras like my 5D :P

Oh no...IR apparently wrote a preview already and ALSO likened the AF to the E-P1's fidgety AF. :confused: This can't be coincidence.

It has no built-in flash, but did anyone else see this in the official Canon press release?

Additionally, the EOS M will ship with the new Speedlite 90EX flash unit as standard.

I have not been able to confirm this elsewhere. B&H describes the kit they will sell, but it does not mention an included flash.

The flash is included in MOST markets (according to dpreview), but they do not give a list of the markets of exception.
