A bit of Canon News

Canon 70Doptyczne.p a Polish website has posted a hands-on with the new Canon 70D. Unfortunately, I can't read Polish, but they have posted some videos showing the auto-focus performance of the camera with the EF-S 18-135mm lens and the EF 100mm, so you can get an idea of how that new focus technology works.

Canon made an attempt to enter the mirrorless market with the EOS-M, but the camera got mixed reviews - autofocus performance was sighted in several reviews. Now it looks like they might be phasing out the first model, as B & H is offering a half-price deal on the camera.
Should you get one? No idea. It will work with regular Canon lenses, but you need to buy an adapter, which will set you back another $150.
The Canon EOS-M Mirrorless Digital Camera/ EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens is now $349, while the Canon EOS-M Mirrorless Digital Camera with EF-M 22mm f/2 STM Lens is $299.
