Conclusion

The Canon EOS M10 has a lot more in common with the original EOS M from 2012 than last year's more enthusiast-focused EOS M3, sharing the same 18 megapixel sensor and simplified control layout as Canon's first compact system camera. Thankfully, it also inherits some of the EOS M3's key improvements, including a much faster AF system and wi-fi/NFC connectivity. We can also pardon the omission of a viewfinder, flash hotshoe, second control dial, exposure compensation dial and handgrip, given the camera's entry-level status. Perhaps the biggest step forward is the inclusion of the new EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM collapsible standard zoom lens, which makes the overall package much more compact than before. The result is a relatively cheap and very cheerful camera that's well suited to its target beginner audience, although more serious photographers will inevitably want to look elsewhere...
