Canon gets a grip

Previous models had no grip to speak of and the M3's is pretty substantial.

No zoom switch

Many competitors have introduced zoom switches on their interchangeable-lens cameras to go with power zoom lenses. Canon has yet to introduce a power zoom STM lens, so no zoom switch required.

Exposure compensation

Like its enthusiast-compact cameras, the M3 has an exposure compensation dial on top.

Substantial thumb grip

To go with the big grip up front, the M3 has a nice thumb grip in the back.
