|Canon EOS-M with 18-55mm STM lens|
The newly released line of Canon mirrorless cameras have less than ideal AF capabilities. They are 'slow', to be blunt. Other than that known 'flaw', the EOS-M seems to perform well in other areas like low light performance, dynamic range and IQ is very good for a camera in this category. For an expected list price of $799, Canon does not want the EOS-M to cannibalize too much on its bread-n-butter EOS Rebel line so if one is doing a lot of photography, perhaps the traditionally styled DSLR is more appropriate. If one wants a small compact camera to carry around but still retains the capability of interchangeable lens, then the EOS-M may be your ticket.
