That amazing video quality is irritating me. I don't want another camera now. I do want better bokah/DOF control. I have the possibility of a cash "windfall" in the spring. Will the EOS-M still be around?
I want a tilting screen and better grip of the 70D as well as no-nonsense EF-S mount, but the price difference is about a whole grand. I wonder will Canon continue supporting its M mount? Will it release new cameras for this mount? It feels kind of silly to buy a converter and EF-S lenses... I am not a "Canon guy" so I don't have any Canon lenses. In fact, I have only a handful of lenses and I have been sitting on the fence for the last three of five years, being unsure which brand and mount to prefer. As the Nikon I have is completely uncapable to produce quality video (bitrate is twice lower than on the Canon, moire is more pronounced, red color is broken into horrible tiles, uneven red-to-yellow-to-blue noise in low light) I am ready to replace it with something else, but I haven't decided which brand and mount to choose. Canon sucked badly moire- and resolution wise a couple of years ago, but the EOS M videos are very lovely. Also, with updated firmware autofocus is about as good as on the 70D (autofocus on the D3200 is dog slow and hunting all the way around).
The 55-250 seems to be a quite good lens even despite that it is not very fast.
Do you use 18-55 often? Do you think it can be replaced with the 22 and the 50? Mark, do you have 1.8 50mm prime? How does it look attached to the EOS M? How the image looks like? Oh, found one
What should be the reasonable minimum lens selection?
* 22 EF-M, 50 EF-S, 55-250 EF-S?
* 18-55 EF-M, 55-250 EF-S?
* 22 EF-M, Sigma 17-70 2.8-4.5 EF, something else for tele?
* what else?
The 55-250 is almost a must. If only Canon offered a similar lens in M form-factor, the decision-making would be much simpler.
