Almost pulled the trigger on this, but I just can't buy the current mirrorless offering after seeing the 70D announcement. That sensor tech seems designed for mirrorless, just can't buy the last gen tech on this one. There's a reason they're selling them off for such a low price.

And maybe within a couple weeks. I'd probably have gone for it if the 70D hadn't been introduced.

A 20mpx EOS-M body is looking very likely in the next few weeks I'd think.  I'm still of the opinion that we will see a gradual expansion of the range to three models, with the current M being the mid range benchmark.  Perhaps a Mx using the new 20mpx sensor in the same chassis and a plastic bodied version of the 18mpx M sensor

New firmware has made a big improvement, really looking forward to seeing some more EOS-M lenses with a second / replacement body most of all ;-)

This is REALLY a great buy and the EOS-M is a great pocket camera with the 22mm lens.  I just bought this package less than 30 days ago and just now called B&H who is refunding me the difference in the cost: about $189.00.

Thanks for posting this. It really paid off. 

I picked up the EF adapter for $69 previously and can use my other Canon and Zeiss lenses with this small body. :D
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.

I am not really interested in the EOS M line.  I currently own a nex6 and am vary happy with it.  It is great for travel I have been carrying it as an every day with the power zoom.  The problem is the power zoom kinda sucks image quality wise.  So I was thinking of getting the 20mm pancake for everyday use. 

This deal was is cheaper than the Sony 20mm pancake and the 22mm has had excellent reviews it is also a faster lens.  So it is really hard to pass up. 

So I pulled the trigger and ordered one.  The nex has been moved to vacation duty and the M will likely be the camera thrown in the backpack everyday.

That said I do not see me buying many M lens until the system matures a great deal.  For vacation duty I will need a dedicated build-in EFV and a flash.

Ordered 1 also.  Was tempted at 399.  For 299, it's a go!  This will be the travel cam for the wife.

Considering the lens itself is $216 on Amazon right now, this looks like a no-brainer for anyone expecting to get any future EOS-M bodies. It basically makes this body, with new faster firmware, about $83. Not bad for essentially the same guts as the T4i!

Bought mine, and a bunch of other stuff on B&H, all thanks to CR. :P Wouldn't have splurged otherwise.

Could this mean they are coming out with a new version of the EOS M?
And maybe within a couple weeks.

Worth noting that the Canon USA Online Store lists it as Not Available.  Edit: that probably means nothing - I just noticed that the EF-M lenses are also listed as N/A, and even if an EOS M II comes out tomorrow, the lenses aren't going to be updated.

As for a new version being announced in a couple of weeks...buy it at this amazing price and don't open it.  B&H has a 30-day return period... 

Even after that, the price will go back up...it's over $400 everywhere else right now.  I'd bet it could be sold lightly used for the $300 it costs today, meaning no net loss. 

As for me, I just ordered one.  I'm certain we'll see an EOS M II at some point (possibly at some point soon), using the sensor in the 70D.  But for me, the EOS M isn't going to be an everyday camera, or even an occasional use camera.  It's going to be a backup camera, pure and simple.  For that purpose, this deal is too good to pass up...
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses
