If anyone is interested, I just bought the adapter from Hong Kong here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Genuine-Canon-EF-EOS-M-Mount-Adapter-Ring-for-EF-Lens-With-Front-Rear-Caps-/111109348420?pt=US_Lens_Adapters_Mounts_Tubes&hash=item19dea21c44

If you click "Make Offer" you can get it for even less.  I tried $75 and was instantly rejected, then $85 and was instantly rejected, $90 was instantly accepted.  The thing is, you AGREE TO BUY IT if you submit an offer and it's accepted so be ready to pony up if you try this.

Just thought I'd throw it out there...

I paid 101.95 on Ebay (just a little more) cause of the promised shipping dates.  Could have found for a bit less but not much and it would take longer to get to me.

That link probably goes to the same seller. Ships one day after payment is received, right? Clicking on "make offer" allows you to get it for less.

I bought the adaptor on Ebay from this seller


2011fashionpie

Paid 91.00 on a make offer that was accepted.

I  bought and paid for it on 7/8/13 in the evening here in US central time zone.  When I got home from work it was in the mail today already on the 16th.  Great deleivery time from China.

I am confident that it is a 100% Canon product from a kit.  If it is not it is a GREAT copy.  It was well packaged and protected as they stated it would be.  The build looks 100% Canon including the print on the device.  Even the first bag it was in before the bubble wrap looks and feels exactly like the bags that all the items were in on the EOS M that I got a few days ago.  A detail that I am guessing would be overlooked if it was fake.

Have not tried it yet but hope to this weekend.

Here is one shot with the EOS M and the 22mm that I took late last week when I was first playing with it.

Just got the adapter, earlier than scheduled from the same vendor as Nebugeater.  Was very well bubble-wrapped. No Canon box but the Canon logo and markings are on the barrel.  The weight and feel as well as the tripod mount look legit.  Just tried it with my Shorty 40 and it works fine.

I ordered this one

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Canon-EF-EOS-M-Mount-Adapter-Ring-For-EF-Lens-/290909317557?pt=US_Lens_Adapters_Mounts_Tubes&hash=item43bb8be9b5

Shipped the next day, I haven't gotten it yet but they have good reviews and have sold a lot of them. I'm guessing overstock since the EOS M hasn't been a big seller. Anyhow for genuine Canon $85ish is hard to beat.

I bought the same one for $85.  Works fine.

I want a taller tripod post for the mount.  I've got the Canon version attached to an Arca plate and can't swap the EF adapter on or off the body with it attached.

I actually bought this one from ebay because I was using the Original Canon one which i borrowed for a few days and thought it was good to own so i could use my EF lenses.
Since the original was expensive and i figured since there was no glass in the adapter, maybe a 3rd party one would be good enough.

I have since used it a few more times and to be honest, it's more than half the price and works 99% the same. the built quality is also 95% the same as the canon one…even the tripod mount removal is identical to the Canon version..
I guess they totally copied the Canon one exactly…and at that price, i'm not complaining..

Enjoying the 640 mm reach with 2x III TC and Viltrox adapter.  AF speed is snappier than I expected with this combo.

This is an abuse to the little fella! kidding nice combo!

I ordered a fotodiox adapter ef to efm, getting it on August, will tell you how it works with my 50 1.4 and 85 1.8 for $65, but honestly I kind of regret it knowing that for 30 bucks more I couldve bought the OEM.

also bought an FD to efm (for my powerful 55mm 1.2) and a c-mount to efm... when they arrive will post my impressions

I bought an OEM off ebay for $85, before prices jumped a little bit (probably in response to the $299 sale and added demand)

It's great. Really liking the EOS M with my 16-35mm/2.8. Gives an equivalent focal length of 25-56mm.

I'm not likely to buy it, BUT I'd love to rent or try the new Sigma 18-35mm/1.8 with this camera.

My next purchase is probably the 40mm STM, which can be shared by my FF cameras and the EOS M. Will give a portrait-ish 64mm on the EOS M.

FWIW, the EF 40 pancake with the adapter is a real nice combo on the M.

What do you think of the focal length? 64 isn't that far from the 70 many of us use on a 70-200 but still many find it awkward. I state this from my experience with the shorty forty on a 7D and other statements I have read online. Still, if I sprang for an M I would use it, after all it's a Prime and sneaker zoom is still currently available.

Actually, I've ordered the 18-55.  But, this weekend, I was using the 22 and the 40+adapter as my primes on the M for random family stuff.  First, the IQ on each is pretty good and second, the 2 lengths gave me enough options with "sneaker zoom" to get some nice shots of the Grandkid just being himself.  Like anything else, use what works.  My point was the adapter and the shorty 40 are a good combo.
