"ridiculously low" shutter speeds do not combine well with event and wedding photography.
So-so video is a major con for any camera to me and many others.
It only takes a cheap 50mm f2.8 on an old APS-C camera to equal the latest and expensive m4/3 camera and lens, good to know.
Yeah you have to go to the $300 Canon EOS M to get a magnesium alloy frame in a MILC.
Unless you are comparing them by the Image Quality each produces!
I would choose the re-introduced Canon EOS M with the new firmware and lower price.
But with the available adapter all Canon EF and EF-S lenses are fully compatible on the EOS M.
Tabloid, I have used my EOS M outdoors in the summer in New Mexico without any problems, you seem to not know what you are talking about!
All m43 lenses are quite expensive regardless of the quality, for what you get. M43 is handicapped by that cruel 2x multiplier. The extensive Canon lens line up also has some of the best quality...
Buy an EOS M with the 22mm f2 lens, its an excellent lens and as small as lenses come!
Major advantage of the SL1 over an E-M1 is the extensive world class Canon lens line up, as well as the cost differences!
The camera size comparison proves my point, a few millimeters difference is not significant.
Yes, the M w/ zoom lens is jacket pocketable(though I generally carry mine in my cargo shorts cargo pocket!
The M is Considerably larger than the GM1 in only one aspect and that is sensor size, and this M2 is even smaller than the M!
How many MILC manufacturers don't sell at least one model without a viewfinder? I don't miss one nor do I want to pay for one.
Those measurements indicate that they are "roughly" the same size, ie. the EM1 is not smaller in any significant way than the EOS M.
You obviously speak from experience.
It seems to me that the Canon EOS M with its 22 f/2.0 lens would be better, it's roughly the same size with a better sensor, better screen, better built, providing better image quality and...
This looks like it could be very important to the security camera industry.
