Hopefully the Firmware download adds a viewfinder.
LOL!...eml58, I had the same thought but figured that I would keep my sarcasm to myself until I saw your post. LOL! From reading other threads I know that you own an M as a small backup body for your full system. At least that was the intention upon purchase. I am slightly tempted to buy one at the low price they are now selling for (I would be buying one for the same reason that you did), more tempting now with the AF software fix coming....but your comment helps me to realize that if the camera sold for $5 and had blazing AF I probably would not ever really actually use it. I am a serious shooter...and for me anything without a viewfinder just is kind of a novelty toy...ya really can't "shoot" with one. (In my world).
I will just hold on and keep using my MFT system to complement my FF gear until something really changes. If Canon does ever deliver an M with a VF and good AF...after the price drop I might purchase one (keeping both of my kits) to have as a second body...but that will be quite a ways off in the future, because when that new M is introduced, you know the price is going to be a little ridiculous.
