for years when i carried my AE-1 and F-1n i often had my Olympus XA in a pocket of my bag or in my pants pocket...

on the days i didnt lug the "big" SLRs around i almost (97-98%?) still had the XA with me...

im looking for something similar but without the bulk of some of the compact digitals. i currently stuff an IXUS 75 (7.1mp) camera in my back pocket but would like something "a little more" capability...

the IXUS has a 5.8-17.4mm zoom (with digital to 12x i think) and up to 1600 ISO but of course its got to be about a dozen generations ago (okay only a couple DiGIC 3)...

what does everyone recommend?

sometimes the 5D3 with 24-70f2.8 is just too much to tote around...

Sounds like you are not in to superzooms, so probably consider the S100, S110, or just announced S120 for a high quality pocket camera. Others may also recommend the Sony RX100 or new RX100 II.

Either get a Canon S (S100, S110, S120), a Panasonic LF1 or a Fuji XF1.
These are the most powerful cameras to fit comfortably in your pocket.
If you can allow for some larger size - then the LX7 is a good option.

Would the EOS M + 22mm be too large? It's not pocketable, but MUCH smaller than a 5D+24-70 while being very close in performance.

If you want something that truly fits in the pocket, I think Eyalg has your complete list.

ive been thinking about the EOS-M as well...

i mostly want something that is at least CLOSE in image performance. the glass in my olympus was pretty good and so with film, i could get some pretty equal images. no sense in having a great disparity in IQ between the 5D and PS...

thanks

As far as mirrorless cameras go, the EOS M is basically a bust compared to the Panasonic/Olympus/Fuji offerings. I'd check them out.
I personally have a Panasonic G5 with is terrific. If you want something smaller, and more compact than that, there are plenty of models to choose from, but I'd skip the EOS M.

.

It depends if you want a whole system. Just the EOS M + 22mm is a pretty nice camera for not a lot of money. You'd be spending 2-3x as much to get the same thing from anyone else.

okay...

things got in the way and i never did get a new P+S...

is the 120 still the top of the line of its type from Canon? seems there should have been something new in the couple of years i was looking but i didnt see anything on the Canon site...

i guess the m22 fell to the wayside. does Canon have any plans for another mirrorless?

an acquaintance has a Nikon 1 J5 and the images are amazing. of course she's also a professional photographer and former Air Force combat camera member...

Canon put out the G7x which is similar in many aspects to the Sony RX100 mk3

I was looking 2 years ago and someone PM'ed me outside the thread to keep the noise down. They loved their Sony RX100, suggested it was seriously a pocket camera and produced outstanding images. For the last 1 1/2 years I've been shooting RAW with the Sony travelling on vacation when I don't want to carry my 5D3 + gear and love it! It is so superior to anything I shot with the S95 I had been using for a P+S and I've been exclusively Canon for over 45 years. I did have to upgrade to Lightroom 5 for RX100 RAW support.
