Review Of Canon’s Mirrorless EOS M5 By U.K. “Pocket-Lint” Far From Flattering.

Yes, it does, to my intense relief, validate my (painful) decision a month ago (or so) to forget the M5 and instead pin my hopes on the new Sony a6500 (getting a Sony a6000 kit (for the lenses and practice)) along the way.

Again, as with the Fuji X-T2, my hunch about autofocus woes have proved to be right. This is getting scary. It is either pure luck and coincidence or I am, finally, getting good at calling mirrorless cameras.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II Delayed? Has Canon With EOS M5 Already Stolen The Mirrorless Thunder?

by Anura Guruge


Click here for the full, original “DPReview” post
with entire Olympus Press Release.

omddelayeddsfsf


Well the much anticipated Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II, as was expected, has been announced at PhotoKina 2016. But the wording on Olympus’s press release is curious. It says: “Olympus Announces The Development Of Its New Flagship Camera …”

“Announces The Development” …

Claims that the camera will come LATER this year, i.e., 2016.

Does that mean December 2016 — the Canon M5 slated to be available in the first week on December.

The specs, as I always expected them to be, are FORMIDABLE. It looks like it will be one heck of a camera.

But, in the end, push-comes-to-shove, the Olympus despite all of its bells and whistles is a Micro Four-Thirds (4/3″) and the Canon M5 is an APS-C — and sensor size does matter. I might, however, be TEMPTED to wait to see what the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II can really deliver.

Canon Mirrorless EOS M5 Availability Date Set.

by Anura Guruge


m5avail

Click to ENLARGE.


November 30, 2016, is stated as the shipping date both in Japan & the U.S. — by Amazon.

Not clear whether that means, if you are Amazon Prime and have pre-ordered, it will get to you on Wednesday, November 30 or whether that is the day that Amazon will ship it out for it to get to you, with luck, December 2.

One intriguing question is whether anybody, let’s say ‘Best Buy‘, will get tempted to offer a M5 deal on ‘Black Friday‘ or ‘Cyber Monday‘. I am going to wait, though I will order via Discover with their 90-day price match.

Finally A Discussion As To How The New Canon Mirrorless EOS M5 Compares To Fuji X-T2.

Fragment of “DPReview” side-by-side comparison.

Click to ENLARGE and study here. But this is but a fragment. Do the comp. yourself at DPReview. Easy enough.


I think the Canon EOS M5 compares v. favorably against the newly released (i.e., this month) Fuji X-T2.

If anything the “Dual Pixel Auto Focus” (DPAF) of the M5 should give it an edge when it comes to AF over the X-T2. The DPReview comparison does NOT bring that up.

Then there is the touch screen, latest (& fastest) image processor plus higher ISO, and to boot the M5 is 61% CHEAPER!

I think the M5, when available in November 2016, will be a significant challenge to the X-T2.

DPReview Inexplicably Claims That Canon Mirrorless EOS M5 Uses Same Image Processor As Canon 80D. They DON’T!

80dm4digc

DPReview’s own side-by-side comparison. Click to ENLARGE and study.


The Canon EOS M5 and the Canon 80D have DIFFERENT image processors.

The M5 has the latest, the Digic 7. As far as I know the M5 is the first camera to sport this new processor.

The Canon 80D has the older Digic 6.

The NEW PROCESSOR is one of the KEY REASONS to consider the M5 over the 80D!

Canon, in their propaganda, does claim that the Digic 7, over the Digic 6, offers faster processing and better image quality.

For DPReview to get such a FUNDAMENTAL & KEY point wrong is just bad.
