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...
I did consider buying the EF-M 18-55 but I have the 24-105L that covers the general purpose and walkaround needs while on vacation and I didn't want to buy another kit lens ever again. Saying that I'm still eyeing second hand deals for a cheap one!
The thing I like about the 22/2 is that the combo is actually pocketable in a slightly "are you happy to see me or ... ?" kind of way! I use the M in conjunction with my 5D2 & 135L (a great combo btw you should try it!) and either have it hanging from my wrist or in the pocket for quick access for up close or wide shots during events and things.
What's got me interested about this telephoto is the opportunity to have the M as my main camera for events with the 22/2 in a pocket for quick swap-out if needed. By events I mean festivals and things nothing serious!
