Canon EOS M3: More physical controls, electronic viewfinder option, business as usual

There is no denying the Canon EOS was not a major success. I wrote about it last June and even bought a bargain-basement version just out of interest. I tried it with Leica lenses with some success. I liked the touch screen controls and I enjoyed using it with a a 35mm optical viewfinder matched to the rather good 22mm prime lens. But it didn't last. There were no compelling reasons to pick up this camera in preference to, say, a Fuji X-E2.
