Our Review & Thoughts: 'Canon EOS M, is it really this GOOD?'
It was only a few days ago (early November) when we received our first shipment of the new Canon EOS M. We initially saw the pre production samples and the EOS M looked and felt great but we were unable to shoot on it. Canon kept saying the EOS M was going to be brilliant, they always say that. Finally we have had the chance to shoot and have a play, WOW! How good is this camera? It still feels great and shoots as well if not better then many DSLR cameras at twice this price. Using the EF-EOS M mount adaptor you have the option of using any existing EF or EF-S Canon lens you may already own. We knocked a few photos out with the 24-105 and 70-200 and again WOW! Quite simply, if you haven't already, it is time to enter to World of EOS and experience true photography. Canon EOS M System Camera - The Overview
Inspired by EOS technology, Canon developed the new EOS M Digital Camera. Canon introduced the market to Full HD video capture with smooth, quiet continuous auto focus made possible by Movie Servo AF and STM lenses, advanced CMOS sensor technology, and the processing power of DIGIC 5. The EOS M Digital Camera leverages these key technologies to deliver high-quality moving and still images with creativity provided by Canon's extensive family of interchangeable lenses.
