Looks like the third-party manufacturers have pulled through. Their versions of the hood have begun to appear on eBay.
Here's the link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/171135970172?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649
I've ordered one and it looks like there's 8 of them left at $13 shipped.
Hope this works out well. I've been after one of these for a while. They will probably come down to half this price in a few months, but still...

let us know how that goes. i went with an oem EW-60E because a knockoff i got for my kit zoom fit so poorly i ended up tossing it.

What is the cap with the hole in it immediately in front of the 22mm?  Is that the lens hood?

that's the hood.

That looks like a pretty elegant solution.  What is that bag and where did you get it from?

Sony LCS-EME street price around $99 or $120 at Sony's site.. yes it's overpriced but a very nice solution for MILC's imho.

Yesterday I ordered 2 of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/320951699480 ... recommended by CR member "Cb33"

DON'T BUY IT...too tight. Not happy at all :( :( :(

Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that. Those looked good. Now I wish I hadn't noticed those while looking around for cases.

Don't worry about it cb33 ;), it only $10. I can still return it. I just want to mention here so others don't run into this problem again.
I had ordered 2 from Amazon and paid $4.99 each ... I still haven't received them as I'm currently travelling ... but no problemo if they don't fit, I have other things I can use it for.
Almost forgot about this thread, been a bit tied up with 5hit loads of work ... coming back to the topic, as mentioned earlier, I bought 2 of these for $4.99 each from Amazon and the pouch is a snug fit for the EOS-M + 22mm lens ... but that's all that you can fit into that pouch and that's how I wanted it ... this pouch is not for everyone, if you are like me who wants to carry the EOS-M with the 22mm lens, (without being intrusive), to small parties or evening get-to-gethers in restaurants etc then this is a great little pouch ... but you do have to remember that it is not for protection but for hooking it up to your belt and portability. I like this pouch ... it fits my needs perfectly. Here is the link to the Amazon store I bought it from: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008R3O6S4/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
If anyone is considering buying this pouch, be warned that once you put in the EOS-M + 22mm lens, the pouch no longer looks "pretty" ... it looks like a cloth wrapped around it but it is very small, "out of way" and does not draw attention ... that's how I wanted it ... like I said before, it is not for everyone ... you should have a specific need for it otherwise you're not gonna like the way it looks with the EOS-M + 22mm lens in it.

yep, i just found this out. i will end up repurposing it to a lens/flash carrier or something.

look good for five bucks... just ordered one :D my optech pouch lacks the belt loop, which i will use to attach to my backback instead of wearing it fanny pack style.

Obviously, the new  "longer" lens to be released with the EOS-M models is the 800F5.6 :)

...which will be a pancake :P

EOS-M / Re: EOS M – 3 native lenses compared
« on: August 26, 2013, 01:14:15 PM »
@sneakerpimp - Which of these lenses do you use the most?  Which is your favorite?

i use the 18-55 most because of the useable range and figured i can push ISO in low light. i had poor results on my last outing with that lens and also noticed the 11-22 is better. no real favorite but i did get by on the 22mm prime for six months and may go back to it as my go-to lens.

i made this very simple and unscientific test in case anyone is interested. all shot at 22mm f/5.6 ISO 200, straight jpeg at 18MP.

EF-M 22mm


EF-M 11-22mm


EF-M 18-55mm

I was wondering if anyone knew how to get just the "end piece" that attaches to the lugs of the M.  Were this available without having to cannibalize a strap to get them, this would open up many possibilities.

old Hassleblad straps have the same hardware and it locks. this one is made by OP/Tech:



you can find them on ebay and photo retailers that still carry the old stock.

Now I can carry it attached to my wrist, with the Canon ER-E1 strap.  I went with this instead of cannibalizing the neck strap attachment and adding a different wrist strap because I use the neck strap sometimes, too, and this makes it a lot easier to switch back and forth.

i bought an oem m strap on ebay then cannibalized the strap hardware so i could configure my own straps.
