The Canon EOS EF-M

By Tim Butler | Posted at 7:11 AM

This looks exactly like the sort of exciting compact bodied interchangeable lens camera that I have been hoping to see from Canon. While there may end up being disadvantages to using a full APS-C sized sensor in this body with regards to how small the EF-M lenses can be made, the fact that this camera shares a sensor with the EOS Rebel T4i also makes it a theoretically more capable than most of its peers. Assuming that the production version fixes some of the bugs that the press ran into with the early samples yesterday, I think this could prove to be a camera that any Canon EF system user will be mightily tempted by.

Jon,

Actually, my main interest is the cost saving sticking to one system. As ridiculous as sticking a giant lens on a tiny body may look, at least it is a supported option this way (and the same with the flashes).

I do like the high ISO advantages (in theory), so I'll be interested to see the results of testing on that. I also prefer a shallower DOF. If I had extra money floating around, I'd pick up a full frame camera…

I've never had problems with my 40D's post-processing, though I typically shoot in RAW. I always liked the output the 40D gave me with its JPEGs.

That's depressing, Jon! ;)

I'm not sure how much I'd use adapters, but there are lenses I wouldn't mind acquiring that I know I couldn't justify buying twice… Who knows, I'm going to wait this one out a while longer. I feel the future 7D Mk II calling my name…
