Did you know Canon has a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera? Well, they do, but not in the U.S. The Canon EOS M3 follows the original “M” launched in 2012 and updated to the M2 a year ago. The new EOS M3 sports a number of substantial improvements including a new 24MP sensor, hybrid autofocus (ie, contrast plus phase-detection) and a 3″ tilting and touch-sensitive LCD.

Gordon says it’s a reasonable camera, but at £599.00 (US$1,019) with an 18-55mm kit lens, it doesn’t really compete with cameras like the less-expensive and more capable Sony a6000. The controls are improved over the M2, the autofocus is certainly better — Canon claims a 6.1x speed improvement — but there’s a dearth of native lenses available.

Who’s the EOS M3 for? Perhaps for current Canon users who want to use their existing lenses on a smaller mirrorless body, but check out Gordon’s review to hear how that might work out for you.

Buy the EOS M3 from Amazon UK or Digital REV (with deliveries to the U.S.)
