Review Excerpt

  • Highest resolution Canon APS-C camera yet; Good high ISO performance for its class; Very fast autofocus; Servo AF in Live View; Quick Control Dial & top-plate LCD screen.

  • Shallow buffer depth with RAW files; Below average battery life; No 60p video frame rate.

  • Comfortable ergonomics and solid build; Versatile EVF and tilt-swivel, touch-screen LCD; Good image quality; Great performance for its class; New C-RAW format saves on raw file size; 4K video is an M-series first.

  • Somewhat limited dynamic range; JPEGs a little soft at base ISO, and more so at higher ISOs; Warm white balance under incandescent light; Poor battery life; Raw buffer is still shallow (but C-RAW helps).
