To me, this signals the introduction of a new EOS M camera VERY soon.
Also, for anyone interested, I've called both B&H and Adorama to see if they would put together a package deal for the camera and both lenses, neither one would do it. However, there is one WHITE BOX version of each lens on Amazon.com to be had, fairly cheap. The least expensive way to get it would be to get the 22mm lens bundled with the camera and then buy the 18-55 for $133 (total price, $432 shipped for the EOS M, 22mm, and 18-55 IS).
I've been wavering back and forth on it but decided not to pull the trigger. Not sure why and I'll probably regret it later... haha!
