 Conclusion from DxOMark “As we’ve stated before in the reviews for the EOS 760D and 750D which adopt a related sensor, Canon has made worthwhile improvements over the previous generation 18-Mpix unit, but the still relatively weak results at base ISO continue to hold sensor performance back, at least when compared with the very best APS-C models. At high ISOs, the Canon sensor continues to impress, and its inclusion in the EOS M3 together with the other refinements in control layout and handling make it a compelling camera. The lens range remains limited, but with the optional EF adapter and EVF, the EOS M3 looks like an attractive — if somewhat pricey — option for Canon users.”

Since Canon EOS M3 is not available for sale in US, you can get it from eBay.
