Photographers have often felt like Canon’s mirrorless cameras have been a bit of an afterthought, but the Japanese corporation is looking to right the ship with its latest SLR-style mirrorless camera, the EOS M5. Boasting a built-in 2.36 million dot electronic viewfinder and set for a public debut at Photokina next week, the EOS M5 — as The Verge notes — compares favorably with midrange DSLRs like Canon’s own 80D.

Like the 80D, the M5 features the same size 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor and boasts an ISO range of 100-25,600 along with 49 cross-type autofocus points. Other features include a 3.2”, 1.6 million dot rear LCD touchscreen and Digic 7 image processor while the dual pixel autofocus system means each pixel can simultaneously capture light while focusing. As far as shooting speeds and video capabilities go, the M5 is no slouch, capturing stills at 7 fps (9 fps without the continuous autofocus) while offering 1080p video at 60 fps. The M5 is even weather-sealed and offers Bluetooth Low Energy — a first for the EOS line — for constant connections to the shooter’s smartphone.

The M5 is due out this November for $979 USD for the body only or $1,479 USD when packaged with Canon’s new 18-150mm f3.5-6.3 lens with image stabilization.
