This post will be updated as new information flows in. I am updating with new posts.
It is here! Canon’s jump on the mirrorless bandwagon is done. The camera has a price of $800/€850/£769.99 with the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lens and will soon be available. Black, white, silver and red are the colours of choice.
Sample images and movies on Canon JP (click here). For the first, comprehensive review of the EOS M by digitalcamerainfo click here, or jump directly to the conclusion (click here): “Simply put, the EOS M […] takes the guts of a DSLR and puts it in a body you can put in your pocket” and “The EOS M is […] a simple-to-use DSLR that won’t intimidate, but doesn’t skimp on the components or build quality“.
So, let’s go for the pre-order links (previews, videos, hands-on and more after the pre-order links). N.B: If you are seriously interested in the Canon EOS M, then act quickly. There will be lots (lots!) of pre-orders and the listed shops will, as usually, have a limited supply at the beginning:
