Well given that appears to be a Photoshopped Canon AE1 complete with a FD L lens the photo at least is a complete fantasy.

 

I suspect the enhanced ergonomics means over the existing EOS M models, so I would expect something along the lines of a slimmer SL1/100D. With the biggest change from the SL1 being the deletion of the mirror box for the reduced flange distance of the EF-M lenses, while keeping the dSLR type grip. 

 

I have no idea what they mean by 'wider support for the EF lens family' since the existing EOS M(s) use the EOS lens interface and offer full support of both EF and EF-S lenses. It's statements like that that brings the validity of the whole rumor into question.

 

The rest of the rumor is pretty much covered by a built in EVF and the long awaited use of a Dual-Pixal AF sensor in an EOS M.

Is that the FE 70-200 mm F4 G OSS  on the end?  I ran into a friend that just got back from Africa and he has that lens.

Very impressive I must say.  He has a show today (Saturday) to sell some of the prints.   At least Sony got the 'color' right!

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, even less and less other stuff.

Whilst the moderator, possibly not apprehending the joke, removes the links that might have thrown more light on the veracity of this yarn.

Don't the existing M's require an adapter to accept EF and EF-S lenses? Removing that requirement (even at the cost of jettisoning the existing "M" lenses) might constitute the "wider support".

 

The rest of the rumor is pretty much covered by a built in EVF and the long awaited use of a Dual-Pixal AF sensor in an EOS M.


Isn't the "long awaited" item a (relatively small) battery powerful enough to drive such a beast? I've always suspected that the lack thereof was the primary reason why the M series has no eye-level EVF.

 

A really good APS-C mirrorless might be too expensive to threaten the Rebel line, at least for the time being. But with the possible exception of the 7D Mark II, I could see it supplanting the rest of the APS-C DSLRs within three to five years.

Yes that is the FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS on my A7r. Here is a handheld shot taken the first day I received the lens:

She is a doll. Smiley Happy Nice shot, I am sure you must be thrilled with it.

 

Is 20mb a typical size for the photos?  How much post did you do?  Do you ever shoot RAW?
