This camera does not appeal to me at all: it has no viewfinder.

I'm not trying to troll, this is a serious question:
why would anyone want a camera without a viewfinder?

i'm accustomed to not having one.

@vaflower;
Thanks for your answer!

1: is not my specific problem, I think: many people complain in the full sun that they can't see much on their lcd screen. Or is this one vastly brighter?

2: many people have reading glasses and now have to put them on and off all the time.

Size is a good point, for that I have a Canon 400d, for a dslr it is tiny, but it still has a viewfinder :)

And Canon pleased me very much with the 7D, the best camera I ever had.

Ya gotta admit, it's kinda hard to put either of those in a pocket!

I admit that! :)

And for snapshots I have a Canon Powershot (which I haven't used for over 4 years now, a shame really because it is a nice little camera).
But my latest iPhone performs just as well for snapshots.

I have a S100 that I use for snapshots myself. Yet, the EOS M with the 22 fits in a sweater pocket easily and take images like this (and without flash):

My wife and I purchased the EOS M yesterday, along with the ef-s lens adapter. So far this cam is really nice, I attached my 430exii to the camera and it works great. Here is a pic I took with the ef-s 40mm, I'll get out tomorrow and take a picture of something more pleasing to the eye.

Just ordered an everything EOS- M kit. I actually quite liked the small 90EX flash for walk around, and even though it is small, it can be a master to many bigger brothers. The adapter is a must also.

What's the ISO setting? Noise is very visible in this small copy tho the nosie seems fine and manageable. And most small camera with APSC and good 4/3s sensors don't need flash to take this shot i guess.

Good picture by the way :)

I got my M last week, and really love it. It's exactly what I was looking for.

My daughter was shooting pics with her S95 and we could definitely tell how much better the EOS M was.

great pic... but indeed very noisy for iso2000.. usually for me that's what ~6400 looks like.

I just tried one and I think I like the feeling of my NEX-5 and NEX-7 better.

Here are a few comments:
1) It's nice to have a familar menu system again. I like the layout of this better than the NEX (bias due to familiarity maybe?)

2) I like the touch screen for reviewing pictures and adjusting a few controls, but it would be nice to have some more dedicated buttons for manual control.

3) Compared to the NEX cameras I have, the EOS-M feels pretty small. I prefer the additional amount of grip that the NEX cameras provide.

4) It would have been nice if a manual focus assist was provided. On the NEX there is the option of having the screen auto-magnify on adjusting the focus ring. This doesn't appear to be available on the EOS-M. The focus peaking of the NEX is also great, too bad this doesn't exist for the EOS-M. (hopefully magic lantern can fix this!)

Auto magnify is a good idea but I suspect that the Canon lenses do not tell the body when the ring is being turned so it would be hard to implement.


For anybody with an EOS M or other mirrorless camera who like to use manual focus, the best solution I found on my 4/3 camera is to put the camera in B&W mode and max out the in-camera settings for contrast and sharpness. This makes it a little easier to identify what is in focus on the screen and if you shoot in Raw the settings are not permanent.
