  • Conclusion: However, the M is let down by its AF system and its unbalanced feel that stems from it not having a decent grip.

  • Excerpt: Undeniably an exciting announcement from Canon, the popular camera manufacturer has finally announced the company's first mirror-less interchangeable lens camera called the EOS M. Arguably designed for more novice users looking to upgrade the quality of their photos while keeping the smaller form factor of a point & shoot, the Canon EOS M has been modeled around a new "EF-M" lens mount.

  • Conclusion: Late to the mirrorless camera game, the Canon EOS M wasn't a big hit at launch -- primarily due to reports of its glacial autofocus speeds. (Something we discovered here at IR immediately.) Due to what was considered a fatal flaw, the camera was mostly ignored until recently when Canon finally addressed the AF issue with a much-anticipated firmware update.

  • Conclusion: The EOS M, Canon's first compact interchangeable lens camera, feels polished on the outside, but its poor performance makes it clear that you're looking at a first-generation product.
  • Pros: Sharp images. Good high ISO performance. Compact body. Responsive touch screen. 1080p video recording.
  • Cons: Very slow to start. Lethargic autofocus. No flash. No EVF option. Limited native lens library.

Canon EOS M Review

  • Excerpt: The EOS M is Canon’s first foray into the mirrorless camera market that is currently dominated by Micro Four Thirds models from Olympus and Panasonic, along with Sony’s NEX lineup. The EOS M was welcomed with a collective “It’s about time…” from most of the digital imaging press, who have wondered when Canon would get around to participating in this exploding market segment.

Canon EOS M Review

  • Summary: After using this camera, I had very mixed feelings about what to conclude and what to recommend. Obviously, this is through the prism of my personal usage and experience, but if I had to sum it up, I would say that you should hold off buying this camera until Canon has significantly improved the auto-focus. The Canon EOS M can capture excellent pictures but, if you want to “capture the moment”, the slow auto-focus does get in the way.

  • Summary: This is as close as you're going to get to a dSLR without actually buying one. The real highlight is the touch interface which makes it easy to fix the settings you need. Performance was good overall, although a little muted on an overcast day, and although the choice of native lenses remains fairly small right now, the option to add on existing EF and EF-S kit makes it seriously tempting. It's well-priced, too.
  • Cons: Narrow selection of native lenses so far; Muted tones on overcast day.

  • Conclusion: But Canon has been late to enter the increasingly popular mirrorless camera market, much to everyone’s wonder. However, with the EOS M, one can term their entrance as ‘fashionably late’. The EOS M is a very impressive mirrorless camera that rivals entry level DSLRs in terms of image and video quality, with a slow autofocus being its only major weakness.
