Canon EOS M3

The new mirrorless Canon seems a very serious competitor. It has a 24 megapixel Aps-C CMOS sensor. The Canon claims the the AF system is also a lot faster than at the earlier model, which was mostly critized for the autofocus speed. Canon claims the M3 is 6.1 faster than the earlier model. The sensor supports the Hybrid AF system. The camera has a tilting Touchscreen and a new contoured grip. The grip seems interesting for the tiny camera.
