I'd be more interested if the 22/2 was a 15/2 and if it came with the EF adapter so I could use my 85/1.8 on it.

I didn't pass it up when they had the Ebay one for 399 with the 22mm... I sure as hell wouldn't pass it up for 299. This really is a great camera, especially when coupled with eye-fi

hmmm

Well, thanks all.  I wound up ordering via Adorama on Amazon so I could use some credits I had there.   Considering the lens alone goes for $200, this deal rocks.    8)

$299 is an awesome price you lucky people. Rest of the world are paying more! Though in Japan it's going for ¥34,000 which is only about $40 off.

Tried to pull a fast one and get it at Best Buy using their "price match" thing.  They don't stock it in store though  :'(

This price seems too low for Canon... even if a new one with the new AF system, higher resolution/better everything came out.  This price seems like an "F it" move that could only be appropriate if the eos M is going extinct already... or is that me overreacting...

Is it possible that a new mirrorless camera could come with the EF mount standard?

I find it interesting that so many people here bought it with the possible intention of selling it on, despite its widely known flaws (and please do not tell me there are none, I have seen it in action, and Canon issued a FW update to address some of them, and looks like they are now going to launch a brand new version to correct them all!).

What makes you think the price will go up, especially if Canon does launch a new M? I cannot see the price going up at all.

Still, sounds like there are a lot of happy campers here on CR right now, so congrats on the new purchase.

I won't be buying one, but I do look forward to hearing about the possible new M, and could there be some new lenses to go with it too....  8)

I hope you wrong expatinasia, about new M + lenses. This could be the most expensive P&S that I ever purchased..........wait the mins, my most expesive P&S camera should be my RX-1 ;)

For $300...I don't think this is bad deal at all.

The 70-200 II had been selling at $2400, then in Dec 2012 it dropped by $500, and IIRC, Adorama sold it even cheaper for a few days.  The price went up - it's still cheaper than $2400, but >$300 more than the nadir.

I think the steep discount, combined with the facts that we're fast approaching the 1-yr anniversary of the EOS M announcement (late July, 2012) and that the M is a consumer camera and the Rebel/xxxD line has been getting annual updates, as well as the 70D's sensor, which is almost tailor-made for mirrorless, means that we'll see an M II announcement pretty soon.

But this really is a great price - as I said, it should be possible to sell it down the line for little loss. An M II will be far more expensive for a while.

Canon just released a UWA zoom for the M.  An M with an EF mount would be giving up the thinner depth that eliminating the mirror gives, it's not going to happen.

So does the M with the 22mm f2 depth of field behave like a f2 lens? Or is it still like all crops and less shallow?

It's an APS-C sensor - so the 22mm f/2 is equivalent to a 35mm f/3.2 lens on FF.

I find it interesting that this lens being made specifically for the M is still marketed with a FF focal length.  This lens cant be used on any other camera so why did they decide to spec 22mm f/2?  This is not really what you get with the camera in use.

Sounds like maybe grounds for a class action law suit.  I got 100 bucks back from John Deere because they underspec'd the engine on my lawn tractor!

Is EOS-M RAW still not supported by Photoshop/ACR versions earlier than PS 6.0? 
I'm still on CS5.

This deal is too good to pass up. I've paid more than $300 for a P&S. Of course, I also had to pick up the adapter (white box $119), and of course for more versatility I had to get the 18-55 (white box $131). Naturally I got filters for the 2 lenses Thankfully I have a 270EX lying around so I don't have to pick up the 90. So now I'm up to $630, but at least I'm ready for pretty much anything except wildlife. Well rural wildlife anyway.

True.  ACR for CS5 is no longer being supported.  You have to go to CS6 or use the forsaken Lightroom 5 (not sure if 4 supports it or not)
