Summary: Blending the best bits of their compact and DSLR range, Canon has delivered one of the most easy to use, capable CSCs around today. While there are a couple of things that are missing on the EOS M - Wi-Fi connectivity for instance, on the whole it's a very well specified camera, with plenty to keep both the entry-level and more experienced users happy.
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.
