Watch DigitalRev’s Kai do a parody imagining how Canon would be if the company was a human being, a man.
What kind of person would Canon be if it was a real person, or even your boss? This is Canon as a man, throughout the era of the creation of EOS and Ultrasonic; making printers and calculator mice; the digital era and finally the threat of mirrorless cameras.
Various Amazon EU sites have the Canon EOS M3 with EF-M 18-55mm IS STM lens available for pre-order: Amazon Italy, Amazon Germany, Amazon UK.

Do you remember the Yongnuo 50mm f/1.8? Tony Northrup made a quick comparison with the original, Canon’s EF 50mm f/1.8 (aka Nifty-FIfty). The Yongnuo is available on Amazon and eBay, and since recently also B&H Photo has Yongnuo products in catalog, they also have the Yongnuo 50mm f/1.8 listed. Unfortunately in the meantime, with all the press, the Yongnuo has the same price as the Canon 50mm f/1.8.
