Canon EOS M5 Gets Silver Award at DPReview (82% Overall Score)

DPReview published their full in-depth review for Canon EOS M5 mirrorless camera. The new Canon EOS M5 mirrorless camera achieved an impressive 82% overall score and Silver Award from the experts at DPReview.

Pros:

  • New 24MP sensor offers much-improved dynamic range
  • Dual Pixel autofocus is both quick and accurate
  • Excellent direct controls with good customization options
  • JPEGs offer typically good ‘Canon color’
  • Touchscreen interface is approachable and very well thought-out
  • Improved burst rates of 7 fps with continuous AF and 9 fps with AF locked
  • Solid build quality
  • Adapted EF and EF-S lenses work as well as they do on an EOS 80D in Live View
  • Video image stabilization and autofocus work very well

Cons:

  • Native lens lineup is sorely lacking
  • No 4K video capture
  • 1080p video capture lacks detail
  • Viewfinder blackout is very long
  • Low light image quality significantly worse than peers
  • Shutter button lacks responsiveness
  • JPEG noise reduction and sharpening are behind the competition
  • Limited buffer for burst shooting
  • Ergonomics may trouble left-eyed shooters
  • Auto ISO almost unusably limited
  • Raw dynamic range still lags behind the competition
  • Auto white balance strays to the cool side by default

From DPReview Conclusion:

The EOS M5 has plenty going for it. Shooting smooth, properly focused video is incredibly easy, and the new 24MP sensor has made great strides in overall image quality. Dual Pixel autofocus makes for faster, more precise focusing and really makes the M5 shine with adapted lenses. Unfortunately, it sits in a crowded market and its excellent usability can’t quite make up for the fact that you can arguably get more camera for less money elsewhere.
