I got the M deal and have been using it for a few weeks, and just took it up for a trip to a family reunion up in a picturesque area. I have the three lenses for it including the new UWA which I had just received from Canada. Unusually I didn't bring my big DSLR which I pack into a Pelican case with all the lenses, filters, flashes, etc. Did I miss the DLSR? Not a bit.
No, it's not as good as, but it's good enough and comes in a tiny package is easy to travel with, plus it works with with existing accessories such as the GPS and flash units. I just brought the camera, three lenses and a single older 580ex flash and it covered everything I wanted. A chair worked for a tripod for the big family shot (and the single flash on top worked perfectly), and otherwise I never took the UWA lens off for everything I wanted. Normally I have to bring the DLSR and a compact camera or two whereas this covered all bases about as well.
Anyhow it seems to get me 90% of the way there, and is the last 10% really worth all that weight? Hmm ...
