"Canon’s debut take on a compact system camera in the EOS M was always going to generate big interest, even if its own manufacturer’s introduction of it has seemed oddly muted and lacking in fanfare to date. Is the reason obvious because Canon simply wants to avoid cannibalising sales of its own DSLRs and the likes of the PowerShot G15 with the EOS M, or will a bigger promotional push come early in the New Year?
Whatever the backroom thought processes, we are left with a reasonably successful if slightly quirky blending of a Canon
PowerShot camera with one of its newer consumer DSLRs, such as the 650D. Perhaps that is what any CSC from Canon was always going to be, in spite of the long wait we suffered before its arrival. For what we get the EOS M still feels pricey though, particularly when a similar outlay will get you a Wi-Fi equipped model possibly with an integral viewfinder from one of the competitors."

This is the 3rd generation of Canon's famous 5D full frame moniker. Since the update cycle is far slower than the typical 18 month turnaround of the lower specced cropped family bodies, the changes from generation to generation are far more substantial. The first 5D clocked in at 12 Mpixels, the second almost doubled that number and added 1080p video to that, among other things. . . . read more
As an EOS user for the past 10 years, this celebration reminds me of both good and bad moments. The most recent ones are maybe the joy when i review my 5D Mark II files, and the gaping hole the ever increasing Canon lens prices leave in my wallet.
Happy birthday EOS! . . . read more
