Summary: At £699 for the standard 18-55mm kit, The EOS M is a touch more than the similarly spec’d and user orientated Sony NEX-5R, while almost £200 more than the very capable Panasonic GF5 that also aims to appeal to the novice, first-time user. Blending the best bits of their compact and DSLR range, Canon has delivered one of the most easy to use, capable CSCs around today.
Excerpt: The Canon EOS M delivers arguably the best image quality per cubic inch (mm) - or per ounce (gram) of any Canon digital camera produced as of review time. When small and light are important specifications, and when image quality cannot be sacrificed, the Canon EOS M (the refreshingly shortest EOS camera name we've seen in a very long time) should be on your consideration list.
Review: Canon EOS M â€” A Classy And Lightweight Mirrorless Camera
6 December 2013
Conclusion: As people contemplate between bulk, user experience, and imaging quality, price is a major factor that can swing people's vote. Mirrorless cameras these days cost you a bomb, and that is where the EOS M comes as a breath of fresh air. A highly recommended snapper, you can also use your existing EF-S lenses with the EF-S to EF-M lens adapter. However, that will set you back by Rs 7500.
Pros: Light weight; Brilliant colour reproduction; Quick to focus (with firmware update); Responsive touch screen; Easy to use; Loads of imaging options; In-body peripheral correction; Stereo speaker and external mic output; Well-built 18-55mm STM lens; EF lens adaptor that lets you load any lens on the body; Well-priced.
Cons: Adaptor is expensive; No EVF; No Flash; Not too many lens options; No inbuilt GPS support.
