  1. wow. a canon camera that cant even keepup with the P25,000 priced sony a6000 (in terms of dynamic range, lens selection and autofocus ) released 2 years ago is now priced at 60,000. that tripled the price of the eos m3 after only adding an EVF and a dual pixel sensor. yeah thats an innovation but tripling the price is not at all worthit Canon!. heck even the new sony a5000 with much more professional features, much better sensor, 4k video recording is cheaper! i srsly now am done with canon

  2. The M5’s pricing in the Philippines doesn’t make any sense. In the US the price for body-only is @ USD 979 = PHP 48,632.80. In Japan it is priced @ JPY 105,740 = PHP 44,704.52. In Hong Kong it’s @ HKD 7,880 = PHP 50,428.02. The price of the 80D from all these stores are higher than that of the M5. How come it is the opposite here in the Philippines? The local price of the 80D at the moment is around PHP 44,500 to 48,500. Canon Philippines, what gives?
