Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"VERY slow to focus with the lens adapter kit, but still produces fantastic quality pictures."
_
"The two cameras together are a great combo, and the bonus is that they can use the same lenses (with the adapter) and flashes."
_
"With an adapter needed for this body they are neither wide nor good any longer."
_
"Pictures look great and I like that I can use my EF and EF-S lenses with the adapter."
_
"I do recommend the Canon EF EFS adapter if you have such lenses or are thinking of expanding your lens collection."

Focus

Focus:
"I find I like the camera a lot even though it is rated at having focusing problems and now use it much more than my main camera (7D)"
_
"However, the auto focus is terrible."
_
"I would say about half the time, or more, the camera gives me the little green squares indicating it has achieved focus, only to get back the computer and discover the focus was off...I would much rather have the camera indicate it couldn't achieve focus, rather than give me an indication it does when in fact it does not...Auto focus:simply does not work well at all."
_
"Quite annoying when all you wanted to do was focus somewhere, and doubly annoying that there's a lag between shots so you not only took a picture you didn't want, but you have to wait a second or two before you can take the one you do want."
_
"Sometimes in the dark, it won't show you anything but a dark screen until you try to focus, but at that point the focus is probably on the wrong thing, so you need to touch the subject on the screen and re-focus....so that's irritating having to focus twice."
_
"slow auto focus, excellent travel camera for photos & video"
_
"Summary: If the auto focus was more accurate, I could easily give this 5 stars."
_
"When it does in fact get an accurate focus lock, the images can be stellar!"
_
"Not having an rl electronic viewfinder option as well as missable autofocus the camera only gets 3 Star overall."
_
"While focus is slow, its extremely accurate."

Image:
"I was hoping this camera would be a compact version of my SLR because I'm tired of missing photo opportunities because I didn't want to carry around my 6D."
_
"When it does in fact get an accurate focus lock, the images can be stellar!"
_
"I have attached a picture of my chick below, very clear photo."
_
"It definitely doesn't compare with a 6D or Markiii but it does produce great quality images and videos."
_
"This camera for those who want good image, compact size and dont make take their time take the shot."
_
"I always loved canon images , I am not an expert but I find canon images much more pleasing to the eye than other brands .I sold my Sony Rx 100 (top rated camera -which was not bad at all) to buy this one ( not highly rated) .I am much happier with photo quality (the main reason for stand alone camera Vs cellphone camera), and it makes me doubt all the hype about certain products."

Lens

Lens:
"My only regret was buying the camera separately from the lens."
_
"I did a studio shoot using its hot shoe to trigger the studio flashes and was taking really great pictures with that were hard to tell the difference between my 24-70 2.8 II lens using a Canon 6D DSLR."
_
"Great imagine quality with the kit lens, sharp detail and some broken."

"The auto focus are not reliable in video recording The kit lens which is a fast prime F2 doesnt produce great low light."

"I did a studio shoot using its hot shoe to trigger the studio flashes and was taking really great pictures with that were hard to tell the difference between my 24-70 2.8 II lens using a Canon 6D DSLR."
_
"These three things taught me along the way that I needed to learn to take better photographs, and so I started early with a Canon Powershot and then moved on a few APSC sensor Canon cameras I love and have in my collection along with a plethora of Canon prime lenses."
_
"With the lens adaptors I can try out and experiment with all my lenses, and it is so much fun."

Screen

Screen:
"The camera probably has every option you would care for, but they are all buried deep in the touch screen menus and not easy to get to..."
_
"Sometimes in the dark, it won't show you anything but a dark screen until you try to focus, but at that point the focus is probably on the wrong thing, so you need to touch the subject on the screen and re-focus....so that's irritating having to focus twice."
_
"The touch screen interface is a little annoying and limiting in certain ways, but the footage looks great and it is so extremely portable!"
_
"I put a magnifying hood over the 3 display screen, which helped for composition and reviewing, especially when it's sunny, but the hood covers the touch screen so it's just not a practical solution to the viewfinder problem."
_
"Not having an EVF to look through is a little bit disappointing, and composing everything on the screen takes some getting used to (especially in bright sunlight), but it doesn't really take away from the quality of the shots that can be captured with this camera."
_
"I still can use the camera effectively with this screen, but sun glair is a problem and I cannot catch fast movement."
_
"For my application is very good, I love touch screen."
_
"A nice sturdy metal bodyMenus touch screen:Rather non intuitive."
_
"Because this camera does not have an articulating screen, I really needed to be able to send my picture to my Android for simple composition while at odd angles."
_
"The touch screen aspect isn't horrible, and since this camera is so tiny, you can't really Knock it for not having tons of buttons, like my T3i."
_
"Wish someway it was a blessing and cursing a switch to EOS M. Pros: Compact size Great screen and one of the best in the market (High resolution and full function of touch screen) Touch Focus Has Stereo mic and external audio jack for better audio recording."

Speed:
"The auto focus are not reliable in video recording The kit lens which is a fast prime F2 doesnt produce great low light."
_
"Action photography and capturing fast moving objects can be challenging - but not insurmountable - because of average AF speed."
_
"Prior to purchase, I did a lot of research and knew going in that focus speed wasn't the best."
_
"The lack of a viewfinder is annoying at first but I got used to it pretty fast."
_
"I still can use the camera effectively with this screen, but sun glair is a problem and I cannot catch fast movement."
_
"slow auto focus, excellent travel camera for photos & video"
_
"Super fast ship and great customer service."
_
"While focus is slow, its extremely accurate."
_
"The focus is rather slow but is more than adequate for static subjects."
_
"Focus speed is quite reasonable for average use (my canon point and shoot is slightly faster) .Otherwise the camera size does not discourage me from carrying it around , and I get great pictures."
