It's been almost a year since the debut of the EOS M3, arguably Canon's best mirrorless camera to date. And now the company is expanding its compact series with the M5, a high-end shooter with a DSLR feel to it. We're not saying it'll replace your DSLR, by any means, but the M3 does borrow a number of features from Canon's prosumer-focused 80D. There's the Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus, for instance, which helps you track moving subjects accurately in video mode. Additionally, you have the same 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor and 100-25,600 ISO.

On top that, the EOS M5 sports a Digic 7 processor (the latest from Canon), 7fps continuous shooting as well as Bluetooth, NFC and WiFi for pairing with devices like a smartphone. Meanwhile, you'll find a 3.2-inch touchscreen on the back, along with a high-res electronic viewfinder. All in all, Canon's new mirrorless camera promises to be one of the best on the market, though we'll have to wait and see. The EOS M5 will hit stores "early" November for $980 body-only (and in the UK later that same month for £1,049), or $120/£100 more for a kit with a 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 zoom lens.

It's worth noting this is an EF-M mount camera, but you can buy an adapter separately to use it with Canon's wide range of EF lenses.
