The mirrorless camera market was long notable for what it lacked: hardware from Nikon and Canon.

Technically Canon has had a mirrorless offering for about four years, the EOS M, but it was a low-end model that felt more like a token gesture than a real camera. Other than that, the company largely ignored the mirrorless market in favor of the DSLR. Canon fans have been hoping in vain for a more capable successor to the EOS M for some time. Now, with the new EOS M5, I can safely say the wait is over.
