Incredibly, it's been almost a decade since the Canon EOS M10 was announced. Launched in 2015, it was the manufacturer's third-ever mirrorless camera (part of the now-discontinued EOS-M series) and followed the original EOS M in 2012, the M2 in 2013 and the M3 in 2015. 

So it's a nine-year-old camera, on a lens mount that has been discontinued. But is the Canon EOS M10 still worth investigating? Well, bearing in mind that you can pick up a body for about 200 bucks, there's still a lot to like about it.
