Canon’s very late entry into the mirrorless segment is an impressive DSLR-matching camera, but disappointing autofocus holds it down.

Good: Rich image quality that rivals Canon's own entry level DSLRs; Excellent video quality and controls; Sturdy body balances portability with quality; Ability to use EF lenses with an adaptor; Simplified features for a casual audience as well; Could replace an entry level DSLR for most.
Bad: Disappointingly slow autofocus in both photos and video; Noisy autofocus motor; Low light grain on extremely high ISO looks ugly.
Price: AED 3,599Dhs

The digital camera market is rapidly evolving as always, and while DSLRs were the absolute option for anyone looking for solid image quality, the line has been blurred with the arrival of impressive interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras by Panasonic, Nikon, Samsung and others.

But Canon has been late to enter the increasingly popular mirrorless camera market, much to everyone’s wonder. However, with the EOS M, one can term their entrance as ‘fashionably late’. The EOS M is a very impressive mirrorless camera that rivals entry level DSLRs in terms of image and video quality, with a slow autofocus being its only major weakness.
