| p.18 #8 · EOS-M - Canon mirroless system |
Erm, how is Canon close? Of price, features and IQ it has none, as far as I can tell. The price is high, the features are few (well, there could be a lot in the menus I suppose, but no EVF, dual wheels, etc.) and the IQ of this by-now older sensor limps behind the Sony sensors. I think we will have to wait for the high-end EOS-M.
Agreed. The 22/2 is certainly a smart move, but, as far as camera bodies go, I don't find it much more appealing than Samsung NX, let alone NEX, m4/3, etc. Granted, I don't own any EOS DSLR lenses, but I wouldn't be interested in using those lenses on the EOS M, anyways. When I had Sony DSLR lenses, I didn't use them on NEX, either.
I dunno, I find the EOS-M LOT more appealing than a NX, because the mount is far more adaptable. I personally wouldn't buy one, but that's for other reasons, I dislike the Soapbar design inherited from the P&S world and I really dislike that 18MP Canon sensor. But if I was looking to get into Mirrorless now, in the sub-$1k body range, the EOS-M would be a strong option (I'd probably still choose the NEX-5N instead, it's a lot better value, but an EOS-M and the 22/2 would be a rather nice little kit).
Yeah, that's why I said "much" more appealing. The EOS M will be better for adapting lenses, but the NX line has a really solid native lens line. Plus, you can't adapt Leica M and Contax G on NX, but you can adapt LTM and SLR lenses, so NX is still pretty adaptable overall. Either way, for adapted lenses, NEX is still the better option.
