Maybe its something you have to experience to understand but who looks through a viewfinder like that.

Hopefully Canon makes a few more prime lenses for the M series.

I was looking at 7D2, but this might work too with the EF, EF-S adapter.

The video peaking did not seem as positive as other implementations I have seen, good to see they have included it however.

So a new camera with what they call Amazing Video comes out.. Why don't they ever shoot THAT video with it and say "this very video is being shot with it"..
Other than Apple getting caught not actually using its product for videos..
Just a thought.. Carry on

Do those two share that many similarities?

I thought the same thing.. The way I understand it is the 80 is very similar to the 7d2 but more for the average person.
The 80 is where all this is headed in the consumer market and the 7d2 is for the pro..

This summer I visited my daughter in New York City and my 5DIII got really cumbersome lugging it up and down the busy streets. I visited B&H just to see where I had bought so much of my equipment and almost walked out with a M3. I am glad I waited because I think the M5 will address some of the issues I questioned about the M3. The M3 would make a great small, inconspicuous, easy to carry camera for those long vacation days where you want to take a few snapshots but now I want to look at the M5 to see if it might be a better fit. I checked the specs and the M5 is almost exactly the same size as the SL1. Still a small camera but larger than the M3.

I work and spend most of my time in Africa, when I travel it takes two days to get home. I have had the G series but I have been waiting for something like this to use for travel instead of full body 5D, that will be more for home or where I am based. I will be getting this one.:-)

To bad the EVF is now fixed in position. I like the add-on EVF that is available with the M3 which is tillable. It allows for more flexible use under bright sun light and keeps the nose away from the touch screen. :-P

Don't know yet, but it looks like it could be, albeit some compromises like shutter speed for sure.

Introducing the Canon EOS M5

My GX8 has "touch and drag AF" in fact if i remember right it was a Panasonic thing first...

That said something about the touch interface DOES look very solid.. I STILL would rather a joystick, Why do no mirrorless makers use a bloody joystick! Except fuji!

Now, the M5 has a lens im VERY interested in

https://www.bhphotovid​eo.com …051677442%2C&A=​details&Q= (external link)

Why? it looks finally like another mirrorless system has an equivalent to my little 45mm Macro-Elmarit

Only issue is that i really need to replace my aging 7D more than i need to replace my GX8... and Canon STILL does not have a fast 50mm equivalent (Tho the 22mm f/2 looks awesome, I find my 15mm is a little too short sometimes and wish for the 25mm f/1.4

Maybe you have to in order to keep your nose away from the touch screen? I don't know, I've never used a touch screen camera with a viewfinder before...

No. At least not on my GX8 or any other mirrorless ive used... I couldnt use the thing at all like that (I have to shove my eye right up to ANY viewfinder, optical or electronic, I miss big eyecups like the good old ED-e)
