ephotozine posted their review of the Canon EOS M3. As all other reviews so far, the lack of native lenses is highlighted. In the conclusion they write:
As a camera (and if you ignore the lack of native lenses) the Canon EOS M3 deliver high image quality, with good noise performance up to and including ISO6400, and the camera has siginificantly improved focus performance, making it almost as quick as other mirrorless cameras, and quicker than some. Images have excellent colour and exposure, and look good on the tilting 3 inch touch-screen. For a Canon user with a number of EF lenses, then the EOS M3 would make an excellent companion to another DSLR, letting you use your favourite lenses with a smaller camera body. However, the EOS M3 will look much more apealling, if and when the price comes down to a level more in line with the competition.
A good review for those who want to learn more about Canon’s third mirrorless camera. To see all our EOS M3 coverage click here.
