Quote:I think the viewpoint here is of more advanced photographers. For sure they're an important market, but Canon probably thinks they're doing well enough from DSLR sales to that group. Where mirrorless might be starting to impact them is at the low end, hence they're focusing their efforts there.
So I don't think the lack of built in EVF will be a big hindrance to sales compared to other factors like price and general performance.
Doing "well enough" does not sound overly ambitious. Likewise, the M3 does not impress as an ambitious design. To establish a more meaningful presence in the mirrorless market Canon would need a minimum of 2 models, one without and one with EVF. Anyhow, it´s good to see that they haven´t given up after the sobering M1/M2 experience.
