The Canon M5/6 are good cameras, but I'd seriously question Canon's commitment to the mount with the release of the EOS R a few weeks ago. Sure, you can adapt Canon DSLR lenses to EOS M, but have you seen how big those lenses are, and how small these bodies are? A solution, for sure, but not one I would buy into a system for (more like icing on the cake). If the camera and current lens options work for you, then great - i just wouldn't expect too much more to come out quickly.

Yeah, not sure if they're keeping this line, especially since the embarrassing release of the original EOS M in the US market (they did well overseas, though, so it's got that going for it). Plus with the new EOS R, all EF and EF-S lenses are 'backwards compatible' so to speak, but not EF-M lenses (you can't mount an EF-M lens onto the EOS R). So, yeah. I have an aged EOS M3 I bought used a few years back that now has a line showing up when I take pictures (probably a sensor problem). I'm looking towards replacing it but with what - I don't know yet.
PS. What I really want is just a good camera with a vari-angle screen so I don't have to break my neck taking astrophotography+landscapes at weird angles :/
I'd be all over this if I didn't already pick up an A6000. It's too bad that this comes with the 15-45mm lens instead of the 18-150mm lens. When traveling, the last thing you want to do is swap lenses.

any tips on snagging an a6000?

Buy one? They're $450 on Amazon without a lens. You can also find used copies VERY cheaply because this is a popular beginner's camera and most beginners give up on photography.
Just a reminder folks.. If you do not get a receipt from a Canon Authorized dealer (even if there is a USA warranty card in the box) you will not get the full Canon USA warranty. This has been repeatedly brought to light here on Massdrop. USA Spec means nothing.. The USA Warranty card (without an authorized dealer's receipt) is considered a "used" camera by Canon. Please make sure you understand what you are and are not getting.
Canadian folks: this is currently on sale for $799CAN On the Canon Canada store. $350 off. You’d be paying lots more if you got it here.

Why the last drop was cheaper?

I'd probably not jump on this either. Only about $40 less than going rate on most sites and prices on the M6 will likely edge down more with the M50's impending release, this feels like Canon dumping inventory and not even really at a great price.
how does the warranty work? I own a lot of Canon gear, and they generally only honor warranty with a receipt from a dealer in your region. They are really uptight about grey market lenses and cameras.
Mine came pre-opened, Manual missing and the camera is not in English(it feels as it is used/refurbished ) . Anyone else get theirs yet ?

I literally was just coming on here to state I got a refurb with a written bs serial number and missing garbage. Also the setup had already been gone through and was in a different language as well which I was able to get back into english but I still would have never bought this for new price if I knew it was a refurb.
GamrCreed
This was an International Spec Camera and as such is typically going to have a setup that is not in English but I am glad you were able to figure that out.
" I got a refurb with a written bs serial number and missing garbage. " What exactly are you missing and why do you feel this is a refurb?
Other lens options?

Not sure if you’re asking about lens options through MD, but if you have canon EF lenses you can just buy an adapter for $30-$50 and not lose af
Hello All,
I apologize for the delay in shipping especially considering the drop is up again but all previous orders will ship out with-in the next 3 days.

Let me check on your order.
Typically for your location the product shipping time would be approximately 4-5 days . That being said there is a huge storm on the east coast that has or will have everything shut down until it passes.

Thanks for getting back to me on that!
Im pumped and can't wait till it ships! Does anyone know when we can expect any kind of update on the order?
This same body/lens is on eBay for $613, shipped from New Jersey.

Okay, I'm surprised you couldn't determine I was being sarcastic. I have no trust issues with people from New Jersey... On the other hand, your link compares a galaxy s5 to a samsung nx3000. You mistakenly think the samsung nx3000 and the canon m6, the camera we are discussing, are similar. They're not. ''I will take the high ground. This camera isn't even good, its only a couple hundred dollars. Here's an article that compares a phone to a completely different camera. Checkmate''!

I have not mistakenly thunk anything. I ALWAYS think on purpose brah :P
But I also did not compare the nx3000 to the m6. I did compare the m6 to the 60d in the post after the earlier one you replied to. You should read further down the page, it will help you to make more sense to OP. I did also compare this m6 to my s9+. You should read more better.
edit: please do tell the intricate differences between one manufacturer's mirrorless camera and this one. If you say megapixels or aperture or the aps-c sensor I will lol at you and throw popcorn fair warning.
I really want to pull the trigger on this, but those comments about the warranty have me questioning. Can anyone explain further to me the situation I may get myself into? Are we absolutely sure this product does not have a US warranty? If not is there a Canon international warranty for this product? Any help is appreciated!
Anyone know where to get a good L bracket and halo light for this?
whelp i joined... #hopefullynoregrets if another 2 join then I'll have to order my boom mic and everything else for set.
I hope this gets movement. I'll likely join even though it will get here a month after my daughter's bday :(
Damn, I want the m6 to be my first camera, but I don't know anything about cameras and their warranty's. If this international spec camera has mediocre warranty service, and I get a lemon m6, I get screwed out of 600 bucks.... I guess my wait continues. So close.
Johnny2x4
If you get a lemon M6 you could return it to Massdrop within 30 days if I've read their policy correctly. You just wont have a year warranty on it since its international spec.

This is a fabulous camera. I own Canon, Nikon Pro equipment as well as Olympus and Panasonic MFTs. If I only had one camera out of all of them, this would be it. The build quality, user layout, feature set is by far my favorite. Only complaints are the lack of lens choices. I use an adapter with my Canon L series lenses, but they are so massive relative to this amazing small body. Love the 22 mm and the 18-150 zoom. Fantastic glass. Just wish there were more faster primes. Previously owned the M, M3 and now this. It checks all the boxes except 4K video. I LOVE this cam. Fully under appreciated in the photo world.

I actually like the idea of using adapted L lenses on M6 & M100. I have seen people use 600mm f4 lens adapted on M bodies. Focusing seemed to be fine for stationary subjects but I'm a bit concerned with moving subjects and BIF.
I think in mirrorless APSC world Fuji's X system is becoming a beast.
agni
On all previous Ms focusing was definitely an issue. Now with the dual pixel the M6 focuses as fast and as accurately as mirrorless around. Hard to get past that dubious reputation. The M was as bad as it gets!
Anyone wanna post and tell me why this isn't that great of a deal?
Because I've been eyeing this camera for a few weeks and this is the lowest I've seen it for. Please someone convince me not to buy it.

Exactly. As a pro user, i'm really wary of buying anything that's not covered by a US warranty. This is not. Great price, tempting, but warranty issues could be a headache. Anybody want to share their experiences using International (spec) warranty process or as covered by Massdrop?
NotThatCool
I can't do that man, I decided to risk the possible warranty issues and just get it. I mean worst case scenario I buy another one here locally and return this one if I have to. I'm just hoping that massdrop has stopped sourcing from shady and crappy distributors so I don't have to do that.
