As you may have heard, Canon announced their first mirrorless camera today, the Canon EOS M. Keeps the APS-C sensor and can still use EF and EF-S lenses with an adaptor. I'm really curious to see if the high ISO capabilities are similar to the current APS-C sensors on the T4i and 60D.

What do you guys think? Looks pretty awesome with a huge lens attached! :lol:

Here is DPReview of it:

I am on the fence. I can get a used Panasonic GF1 with 2 of the kit lenses for about $400. The fact that I can use my EF lenses on an EOS-M (w/adapter) seems like a plus, but I need a second camera for the backcountry, so why would I want to schlep around my heavy EF lenses with this cool lightweignt camera body? Plus the panasonic lenses are superb, as are the Olympus (same lens as the panny?), the Sony less so, as per reviews I have read. I know nothing of the Nikons in this category.
The EOS-M looks cool though.
