Really nothing all that surprising here. Pretty much what I guessed several pages back except they went with the current APS-C sensor rather than the G1X I had guessed at.
Price is on the high side (you are surprised?) though not outrageously so given the lens inclusion. Adapter is huge, expensive, defeats the form factor though this is an issue with many compact camera adapters. Still, I acquired a GX1, 14-42, 20 f/1.7 and EVF for only $50 more than this basic kit. As for those who think MFT IQ isn't up to snuff, well I've printed at 13X19 and frankly...Show more →
Price is ok compared to Nikon's ask for the V1/J1. Most of the mirrorless are expensive in relative terms, but often smaller most certainly does not mean cheaper. Just look at ultrabooks.
As long as this is just their first shot and there will be higher specced versions I think it's a nice camera. I've already bought into Olympus OM-D and aren't ruing the decision at all, but in a few years if Canon wake up like the others did and offer an advanced model targeting the top end rather than entry level I'd be very interested, especially if they get a strong line up of glass. As to which they'll need to move quickly on more native EOS-M lenses to keep interest. The 22mm pancake looks great, so I hope they keep them coming. However, unlike the other mirrorless companies that put up their lens roadmap, Canon will never do such a thing and leave people wondering what they have coming and have no idea when until it's announced.
