This ad-free website's biggest source of support is when you use those or any of these links to my personally-approved sources when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. Canon does not seal its boxes in any way, so never buy at retail or any other source not on my personally approved list since you'll have no way of knowing if you're missing accessories, getting a defective, damaged, returned, store demo or used camera. Buy only from the approved sources I use myself for the best prices, service, return policies and selection. Thanks for helping me help you! Ken.

The Canon EOS M10 is an inexpensive mirrorless camera from Canon.
It is smaller and lighter than the original EOS M.
These have much larger sensors than a Sony RX100 Mk IV, but no viewfinder.
The Canon EOS-M10 only works with a new kind of smaller-mount EF-M lenses.
Want a great ultrawide? Your existing EF-S 10-18mm and EF-S 10-22mm work great when you use the adapter, and so do all of your teles, fast primes, macros and other Canon lenses. You don't have to go buying more lenses; if you shoot Canon, you probably already have exactly what you need.
Just as EF-S lenses only work on small DSLRs or this EOS-M with adapter, these newest EF-M lenses are an even more restricted subset that only work on the EOS M. There are no adapters to use EF-M lenses on DSLRs or 35mm cameras. This is because 1.) EF-M lenses only cover small sensors, not 35mm or full-frame, and 2.) they have a very short back focus to work on the shallow EOS M which has very little depth from mount to sensor.
35mm and DSLR cameras are much deeper from mount to sensor, so one couldn't possibly get EF-M lenses close enough to a DSLR's sensor to focus at anything other than super-macro distances. You'd have to hack away a half-inch of lens or camera to get the combination of EF-M lens and SLR to focus properly.

The original EOS M had outstanding picture quality, but was very slow to respond or take the picture.
I'm hoping this new fourth-generation EOS M10 is now plenty fast, making it a great camera. We'll see when I get mine, but the lack of a viewfinder is a big negative.
If it's fast, the M10 will have outstanding image quality; with probably the best color rendition of any mirrorless camera brand.
It's lack of a viewfinder makes it a tough sell.

The biggest help is when you use any of these links when you get anything.

I recommend them all personally.
