wellity wellity wellity, the elusive and much delayed EOS M is finally put to the test:
"We like the Canon EOS M -- far more than we might have expected, given its mediocre performance during our hands-on -- but the company's first mirrorless ILC falls short on several fronts. Professional photographers can affix their pricey L lenses,

Happy birthday EOS! . . . read more
