I bought the EOS M in North America and the M turned me into a fan of Canon.
What ? 20% of any camera market by one model is hardly a failure, all of Panasonics models together make up 11.9% of the mirrorless cameras sold!
@straylightrun, even with the EVF the M3 is no where near the size of a Canon SL-1 which is the smallest DSLR. It depends where you purchase the camera and EVF as to expensive, right now you can...
Will the Lumix camera allow me to fully utilize all the hundreds of Canon EF/S/M lenses? For $41? Will it allow me to use all the flash options available to Canon cameras? I already know it will...
I don't want to get stuck buying a new camera just because the EVF stopped working or was damaged. I 'd rather update my camera with a newer better EVF than replace my camera to get a newer better...
Its fits into my jacket pockets with no problems, actually usage vs. guessing.
The optional external EVF for the EOS M3 has diopter adjustments.
You did say "No professional I know owns a D800 or 5Dmk3 uses a D3XXX or a Rebel as their backup camera. Where is the alternative? did you not? It is a great backup camera for pro's.
My point is, it's a backup camera, with the M you would not have to purchase or carry around a second set of lenses and unless you are shooting sports or some other high speed action(for which all...
Do you know that the EOS M3 is not fast enough for your needs, or even the M2?
Why would a professional choose another make of camera system that in all aspects is different from their main system when they can have a backup that does not need anything more than a $41 adapter...
Has Canon ever put out a roadmap for any of its camera lines? When you are the leader in the camera market it is best to keep your competitors guessing.
Since EVF tech has not equalled that of OVF's there is little point in changing the FF DSLR to mirrorless at this point.
The M was and they did not do a review of it.
"always means a long and chunky adapter" , the EF lens to EF-M mount is only one inch long and no bigger around than the EF flange diameter, so it is neither long nor chunky let alone both!
"those big heavy EF lenses", you mean like the EF 40mm f2.8 pancake lens?
If you don't care why bother posting?
Not when they visit here in Southern California, they seem to carry DSLR's almost exclusively. And the EOS M is a top selling line in Asia as well, I belive sales are better than the Oly pens.

And yet Canon sells more cameras and lenses to professional photographers than any other manufacturer.
