I have to admit the timing of this was terrible.  My metabones adapter is arriving Monday if FedEx is accurate.  I used all my Amazon gift cards purchased from  credit card points.  If it was last week I could have gotten a EOS M for $50 plus tax. 

But it was still to good of a deal to pass up.  But I will not be buying any accessories for it anytime soon and now have no need for the expensive Sony 20mm.  I need to rebuild funds and I can use all my lens on the Nex anyway.

Does anyone know the status of Magic lantern port to the EOS M?   It is extremely useful on the 60d.

I'm thinking sell the 22mm lens, use the proceeds to (mostly) pay for an IR conversion.

I've got plenty of other lenses.

Looks like Amazon and affiliates are sold out at the $299 price.

Is this the most image quality for $300 ever?  The package has other issues, of course (AF issues, no OVF, lack of lenses, etc), but this sensor and lens combo for $300 new has got to be a candidate for the best IQ value in the history of digital imaging.  I love hyperbole.

I bought one.  I don't know what I'll do with it - I'll figure that out later.  It was just too good to pass up.

I couldn't resist. I'm probably going to hate myself in the morning. But I couldn't resist.

Is the AF issue that bad? From the canonrumors.com firmware 2 blog post and video it looks like the new firmware really improved AF. The firmware 1 video looked awful, and I wouldn't buy based on that. But AF in the firmware 2 video seemed fine.

As for trying to find a use for it...there is a Nikon F to EOS-M tilt/shift adapter on eBay. It's another $300 so I'm going to wait a bit. But a good friend has a ton of Nikon glass. Might prove useful.

WOW! ... that is an INCREDIBLE deal ... its a great camera with an AWESOME lens for just $299 ... the 22mm f/2 lens alone costs $216. I use this combo for evening occasions like dinners at a restaurant, small parties etc where the ambient light isn't all that great, but taking a big camera like a 5D MK III or even a crop sensor camera looks totally intrusive ... but EOS-M with the 22mm f/2 lens is just great for such occasions plus it comes in handy as a great backup body for Canon DSLR users ... also if you are a Full Frame user, the EOS-M works great to get extra reach for images of the moon or for birds perched on  a tree etc

oh my goodness.  I just couldn't resist.  Seeing that the 70d will be able to use the 18-55 and 22 lenses AND I was looking for a smaller camera to keep around...  I got both the 22 and 18-55 versions.  Amazon is sold out of the 22 version but was able for backorder.   I am incredibly grateful for CR for posting this awesome deal!

2 days ago ordered on ebay EOS-M + 22f2 + EF-M adapter + EX90 bundeled for 480 dollars. it was a nice deal cause eos m + lens were 444.

299 is a great deal, but i'm still happy with my kit - adapter is a need, and i think ex90 would be useful.

Awesome deal. Seems like a good pocket cam for the times you need to snap quickly and/or can't use both hands or a dslr is too cumbersome.

hmmm

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)

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

LR 4.2 includes raw conversion for EOS M.

I saw this on a B&H Facebook post this morning and hardly thought twice about it. I talked myself out of it a couple times last week when it went down to $444 on B&H.

I had already gotten the EF adapter off ebay for $70 so it was just an issue of when. $300 was when for me.

I really hope there will be a 30mm M-lens soon.
