My EOS M arrived today.
I know my supporters will certainly ask themselves "How did he convince himself to purchase the M?".
The answer is simple: they basically PAID ME to get a M.
Let me explain this.
a) I saw an on-line italian shop offering a "full kit" (EOS M + EFM 22mm + EFM 18-55mm + Flash 90EX + Mount Adapter" at an irresistible price: 535€.
b) Then I considered that the same vendor offered:
i. EFM 18-55: 125€
ii. EFM 22mm: 180€
iii. 90EX: 85€
iv. Mount Adapter: 95€.
c)So, [535 - (125+180+85+95)]... it was 50€ for the EOS M!!! But 50€ was still a huge
amount of money for a mirrorless! I couldn't justify paying it.
d) Therefore I had to consider that with the EOS M they sent me an original Canon LP-E12 battery, which costs abount 55€.
So, basically, they paid me 5€ to buy the EOS M.
If a new "M2" comes out with a better autofocus & viewfinder & battery & GPS & Wifi & Megapixel & S/N & DR, and I decide to upgrade, I won't feel guilty about wasting my money.
[BTW, I immediately ordered two 32GB SD (i.e. about 2,000 pictures in RAW), the lens hood for the 18-55mm and an extra battery... 135€... but I consider them just consumable materials
