The difference with the Coolpix is that, IF the EOS-M has the same IQ as the Rebel T4i/650D, then it will make the flash requirement not so much. Maybe your mom should just have to get used to not have a flash and still be able to take picture in low light :-)

BTW I tend to be more interested in the small 90EX flash they will release with it. If it does work as a master controller on my 5DMkII for the 550EX, I'll buy it.

I have had the same feeling. The lack of control for aperture / speed through a knob is a bit of a non starter.

My mom using a camera in low light without a flash? LOL! I don't know if she'd be able to see what was in focus, let alone where the shutter button was. HAHAHA!

I do like the looks of that little flash. I was thinking it might be fun to have for my 5D/40 combo or my GRDIII.

I think this camera aims for those dslr-users looking for a nice 2nd camera. For that it's great.

I don't consider any mirrorless camera without a viewfinder "serious"

The ones that Daguerre used weren't serious enough?

Mr Rockwell is always funny to read even if I don't agree with all of his opinions. I guess: In his eyes, because it is a CANON, it MUST BE the FIRST SERIOUS mirrorless one?

Nifty - I want to put a CV21 on it and use a CV28 finder in the shoe. Boom. I bet the M adapters are available on ebay before the camera is.
