Got my EOS -M 22mm kit from B&H today(ordered the day the sale started).
Will take a slight "learning curve" after using only the D- and Rebel series for 10 years, don't shoot in "live view" much.......
First impressions: +very solid build, no autofocus problems (S/W 2.02), IQ very close to 60D(no surprise),haven't had a lens this fast since my Canon AE 1 Program 50MM 1.8
- controls not very intuitive to me(which is why I love the D series buttons)
- feels strangely heavy, even though it's light...sounds like an oxymoron, but the footprint is tiny, so the weight is concentrated in a small area.
-flash I bought (small sunpak unit) really has lousy coverage.
I bought this on a whim as something I can keep with me as a second kit at all times, eg if I'm carrying my bird photography kit and want to grab a wider landscape or snapshot. Have been using my Samsung Galaxy for that, which is great if you just want to post on FB, but now I won't have to sacrifice an IQ should I want to really work with the images, print etc.
Whatever Canon's motivation for clearing these out at low price(assuming they cut wholesale price), I think they may have gotten the M-series in the hands of many of us who were not going there otherwise. If I really get used to this, I'd add a short zoom, and down the road maybe the EOS MII, M&M or whatever they call it.
