In The News From around the web

Given the latest patent, it seems that Canon might be leaning toward the 16-50mm lens, but it's difficult to say with certainty.
There is also no lens with an equivalent focal length longer than 320mm, so those looking for a longer telephoto lens are still left wanting.
To begin with it’s compact and impressively well made, with a control layout that makes it a pleasure to use.
Notably, the relatively slow burst mode and small buffer make the M3 feel a bit dated.
