Look what just arrived, barely in time for Christmas.
You might recall my reaction to the announcement of this was a bit on the skeptical side. But I can see the appeal. For example, here's one formidably nice feature that stands a good chance of converting certain buyers all by itself:
•It's a Canon
...Among other desirable features.
Merry Merry and Happy Happy, Canonistas!

Gordon Lewis: "I've actually had the pleasure of shooting with a pre-production sample of this camera for a few days. It was the first M-series Canon I had ever used, my expectations were in check, and because it was a loaner I didn't have to write a check for it. As a result, I was pleasantly surprised by how well it handled, how fast the AF was, and how good the results were. The main problem Canon has with this camera, in my opinion, is that as good as it is, there are so many other cameras that are at least as good or considerably better, for a lot less money, and with a lot more lenses available. Yes, I know Canon offers an M-to-EF lens adapter, but most EF lenses are huge compared to the M5. Just because you can do it doesn't make it a good or practical idea.
"So far, the best I can say about it is that it beats any mirrorless interchangeable lens camera Nikon has to offer."
