As mentioned, several of us here on CR have an EOS-M.....but, there is also always the group on flickr:

Really exciting at this point anything is a bonus! I will be glad to see Canon innovating again!
I'm looking forward to 7d2 technology finding its way to ## and ### series cameras.
I'm personally looking forward to a full-frame (5D) version of the 7D replacement, assuming it's as-rumored.
I never bothered with the EF-M 18-55It's actually better than you might think - nice metal build quality, the IS works well, and it's sharper than the DxO charts would indicate. My preferred carry method for this camera is actually to have the body capped, um, body in one pocket and the 18-55 in the other. When I'm ready to shoot, I just assemble them...
I'm considering the 11-22, but this little telephoto seems like it would be nice for travel as well. If only it had a viewfinder, it would be the perfect travel camera. Maybe the M3...
Try tracking kids with contrast detect
BTW here are some shots from yesterday, of my son and his mother running towards me… Shot at f1.4 using a 6D, center focus point.
The first shot is back focused, and only the last one is okay sharp to me at least. So it seems the tracking can't keep up. I've got a few from indoors today that are really sharp, so I guess going back and forth with calibration is always a good thing.
The thing about the Sigma is that it is soo sharp that even slightly misfocused shots appear sharp enough.
How can you tell that it is back focused? I can't see where his focus point was. Is it in the exif data? Sorry if this is obvious.
I would also point out that I have personally taken similar tests, and when I express that I believe I can tell a difference (knowing that sometimes there isn't one) I have got it right, normally to the chagrin or complete unacceptance of the poster.
I believe people spend too much time reading forum opinions, tests, reviews etc, and their buying decisions are influenced by that reading. I believe people are sold something on subtleties and nuances that they themselves can't actually see or appreciate and to "justify" that purchase, when no justification is needed, they will make silly claims about minutia.
