This plan has several advantages:
- I can use my daddy's Leica lenses (assuming that there will be an adapter for this)
- Since I am assuming that there will be a Leica M lens adapter, I'll also assume there will be a Canon FD adapter. Thus, I'll be able to use all my old FD lenses, too! (I have three that would be interesting to use: 24mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4 and 200mm f/4)
- I can use all my EF lenses, and they will autofocus and auto-aperture!
- Putting the little 22mm f/2 EF-M lens on that camera means that it is very close to pocketable. I'd carry it all the time.
- Maybe my wife would use it all the time, too. She is not happy with the point-&-shoot camera(s) she has now.
But Canon needs to fix these problems
- It needs a viewfinder (rumor has it that this is coming in 2013)
- The speed of the autofocus has to improve, The Sony NEX and (especially) the Olympus 4/3's cameras set the standard and Canon needs to get close to that.
- The price needs to come down (since I'd also buy the EF lens adapter, the get-started price is (B&H) $921 -yikes!).
