Per DP Review here are pros and cons:
Pros

• Solid JPEG quality, with pleasing 'Canon color'
• Well-built with 'just right' front and thumb grips
• Two control dials plus exposure comp dial
• Tilting 3" LCD with good touchscreen implementation
• Optional electronic viewfinder
• Numerous customizable buttons plus 'My Menu'
• Exposure compensation can be adjusted in 'M' mode using Auto ISO
• External mic input
• Adapters for virtually every lens mount in existence

Cons

• Sluggish autofocus speeds
• Mediocre depth and subject tracking
• Very poor battery life
• Buffer fills up very quickly in burst mode
• Burst rate slows to ~1.5 fps when using Continuous (Servo) AF
• Unsophisticated sharpening and noise reduction smudge away JPEG detail
• High ISO performance behind competition in terms of both noise (Raw) and noise reduction (JPEG)
• Raw dynamic range lower than peers
• Basic Auto ISO functionality
• No 1080/60p support
• Movie and playback buttons are poorly placed and are too flush with body
• In-camera Raw conversion would've been nice
• Limited Canon EF-M lens lineup
• No USB charging option
