I did see this a little cheaper a while back.......but this is the best price I have seen for this most recently. It was $1099 up until about 15 minutes ago, and just dropped $200. Includes a case and SD card as well as lens, and external viewfinder. This camera has gotten great reviews and main gripe is that it does not come with a built in viewfinder. They are now bundling it with the viewfinder if you buy it with many lens bundles. Other lens bundles seem to also be offering $200 off as well if you prefer. Also, the base camera is $50 off normal price . Also, note that since the viewfinder uses the hot shoe, you cannot use an external flash and external viewfinder at the same time. DPReview called this camera the best mirrorless camera around $1000 in their November 2020 article.

Kicked myself for not grabbing it at 799, have been waiting a year for a price drop.

Size/weight/performance ratio on this is awesome, finally worth replacing my nikon j5. I've given up on viewfinders and shoot mostly waist or chest-level looking down at the flipped up screen.

Also on Adorama and Amazon, though Adorama and BH both have bundles with case and memory card.

The Best Buy one, I think, is the closeout on the Mark I version of this camera. First, I don't think this version has a viewfinder built in either, so I think the one bundled with this post runs about $200, so if you think you will be shooting in sunlight at all......or prefer a viewfinder......they are almost the same price, after you add that on. Also, if you read the DPReview on the Mark II, it goes over many/most of the improvement/changes. (Digital Photo Review). https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/...-ii-review

There is a very good section in that article called "Here's what's new and how it compares".

https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/...i-review/2

It seems like it has a totally new sensor, new autofocus features, 4K video as opposed to 1080, as well as tweaks to the body and new buttons. I am certainly only an amateur photographer or hobbyist, so perhaps someone else will chime in and be able to give you some more technical advice/suggestions.

Thank you very much. My camera knowledge ends with pushing the button to take a pic. I would like to take great pictures, though.

Doesn't look like much of a camera for $900!? I'll stick with my Canon T7I!

How does this compare to the Fujifilm X-T4? Similar quality?

I have never owned a Fuji...and am a little more biased toward Canons, but the X-T4 seems to get fairly good reviews. DP Review gave them slightly better ratings than the Canon M6......and have rated the Canon M6 Mark II, the best mirrorless camera around $1000 and the Fuji X-T4 the best mirrorless camera around $1500.

The "M-mount" is dead. It is a fine camera but you will regret paying this much for it as you shouldn't be looking at getting additional lenses due to the finite nature of the system, and the kit lenses are not good enough for a camera that costs this much.

I don't own this camera but I own (and love) a Canon M50. If you are a very very beginner photographer who is interested in taking better pictures, this is the best crop sensor Canon body you can buy at the moment (with a few caveats) Just know:
  • If you are looking to upgrade bodies in the future, there is no easy Canon upgrade path. The M mount lenses can only be used on M bodies so not on the EOS R or RP. You can use EF and EF-S lenses on this body and R bodies but they're older, heavier and kind of defeat the purpose of having a smaller body with a gigantic lens. BUT they are interchangeable with full frame DSLR and the EOS R line.
  • The M mount itself may be discontinued soon - with the recent release of a M50 Mark II being basically a firmware upgrade, there's a possibility they may not release more lenses for this line. But, third parties are invested and the Sigma trio of primes are a fantastic value and have excellent image quality. If you are not interesting in buying that many lenses, this may be suitable for you.
  • The "4K" on this camera is not true 4K and most likely a 2.5K upscaled image. Fuji bodies are downsampled from a 6K sensor image so the quality is a lot sharper.
Overall, this is a great camera with a great sensor but consider the limited native lens selection and unclear upgrade path before you drop $1K plus more on a camera and accessories.

Canon DOES have great picture quality, great autofocus and the easiest menu system to use so for beginners and casual photographers, this is a great choice.

I am in a similar situation and there's no worthy upgrade to my current M50 or any "prosumer" bodies in the EOS M line. I am heavily considering switching to Fujifilm as their lenses work on any of their X mount APS-C bodies.
