If this were a Canon announcement people here would be drooling over the NEX6. This is the camera I have been waiting for. I own a NEX-5N and love it but I didn't want the huge MP sensor in the NEX-7. Now I can have my cake and it it too
Canon should be ashamed!
Sony is kicking some serious butt at the moment with all their camera inventions and introductions. They are not afraid to think out of the box where Canon just holds on to the old.
I've pre-ordered the 6. It does seem pretty sweet, and I agree, if the EOS-M had a similar spec sheet it would've been like someone dosed the water supply around here with Viagra.
No reason for Canon to be ashamed, but they should get the feeling that they need to be a bit (or a lot) more innovative. For a while I thought they were just holding things back to be able to play the "one up" game on an as-needed basis. But I think I was giving them too much credit.
As for Sony, I really wish they would get off their lazy butts and do something. I've never like them and their aproach as a consumer electronics company, but I'm done holding that against them.
