It cames with latest firmware. Here is my 2cents: AF speed on Canon EOS-M is still much slower than my RX-1.

No one could have predicted that.

Sorry...but I couldn't help for not mentioning that, while holding RX-1 and EOS-M at same time ;D

I'm sure the RX-1 is better. I'm sure I'd rather have an RX-1.
But, the EOS-M I just bought is about 8% of the cost of the Sony and smaller. Also, while the RX-1 will probably depreciate significantly, the M at $299 may well appreciate if sold correctly. I bought this camera to tide me over until the full frame RX-1/EOS-M comes out.....

hehehe ... so funny to see "crazy deal" EOS-M shoppers believing they would find buyers willing to pay more than USD 99,- for a used EOS-M including lens (22 or 18-55).

But yes, you will loose significantly less money than folks shelling out 3 grand for a Sony RX-1.

Ummm the 22/2 lens alone is about $300 used. Where are you seeing these $99 EOS M 2nd hand deals? Please provide a link.

What a deal!
Currently cost in the Netherlands 569 euro (approx. 714 US dollar) - that includes 21 percent taxes. With those prices they will not get Europe out of an economic crisis. People are not spending their money

An intriguing offer has appeared on an Italian site:
 
EOS M + EFM 18-55mm + EFM 22mm + 90 EX + EF Mount adapter = "Full Kit EOS M" = 565€.
 
The vendor (galaxiastore) does not belong to my "preferred list"  :(  (which includes Amazon.it and two other shops) but other Italian people checked it and were happy about it.

Same store, another sudden price drop.
 
EOS M + EFM 18-55mm IS STM + EFM 22mm  STM + 90 EX + EF Mount adapter = "Full Kit EOS M" = 535€.   :o   :o   :o

 
I must confess that I am tempted now. I'll talk to the Board of Directors (i.e. my wife  ;D ) about it.

For what it is worth, I got my order in on Monday.  The camera really has a nice build quality to it and feels better than my T2i.  Honestly, I'm pretty impressed.  Sure, the AF is slower than the T2i, but is better than other P&S I have used in the past.  Also, it came loaded with the latest firmware.

Hope this information helps anyone still deciding.

$299 for EOS-M with 22mm lens is a GREAT DEAL - I doubt we could loose much if we decided to upgrade in the future.

Most of us would buy FF if we can afford it - right? I don't expect making money out of RX-1 when I'm ready to upgrade to RX-1 version II.

Eventually, we all (myself included) need to realize that there is no such thing as most of us.

RX-1 is 800% more expensive then the EOS-M but it isn't 800% faster ... both cameras are totally in different league, the comparison just does not make sense.

To me, fast enough to capture a photo in almost no light condition at the right moment is priceless.

I think you right about these cameras are not in the same league.

21 percent sales tax!  :o
People in the United States complain relentlessly if the sales tax goes anywhere close to 10 percent.
