just bit. going to trade in the wife's 550D to someone for the EOS-M and 22MM. I feel like this will be a lot more enjoyable to carry around town on a daily basis for daytime shots or just for random events.
Not having a flash bothers me a little for casual group shots of friends and stuff, but I figure if I really hate it I can just sell it and probably even come out ahead.
Thanks for heads up Admin... love checking your site everyday!
and..... may the next M be Full Frame!!!!

hehehe ... Adam Smith's Invisible Hand @work.
Or in other terms: "Piece of cr*p = sh*tty price. :-)

I will not buy an EOS-M. I would not even collect special treatment garbage for free.
Way to go, Canon! :-)

Who has the best price for the EF adaptor? Does the non Canon one work well or is it a "Sigma type" risk for the future that other lens won't work on it?

Seeing that the 70d will be able to use the 18-55 and 22 lenses

 ??? What?

Yeah, I think lensgrabber is not understanding that the EF-M mount is different than the EF mount and that the 70D won't be able to use these lenses.

The best deals anywhere for camera gear are always in the States.  That kit isn't available where I am in Southeast Asia, but a kit consisting of the EOS M, EF-M 22mm f/2 STM and EF-M adapter is available for roughly the equivalent of 640 USD at current exchange rates.  And that's after the price came down quite a lot recently.

The more I use this camera, the more I like it.  That is a fantastic deal.

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.

Oh bummer, I have LR 3.2! Luckily I haven't bought one yet. I never even thought to check that!

Looked forward to it before it was released; then pooh-poohed it after trying one at a store. Now with the new firmware and only $300, had to get one. It's not gonna stop the kids' quick action but it can go with me everywhere and gives far greater IQ than many P&S. Putting large L lenses via the adaptor on it might be beating the purpose of having such a compact body. DSLR will make it much easier to capture the moments in life. Wish Canon could release more high IQ fast primes to go with their M line camera.

Little Kumiko is in tears. Devastated. She was so proud of her father for working to engineer Canon's first mirrorless camera, much joy in the family. But now she learns he produced a "piece of crap."

Best of luck in your efforts to resist economic theory.

Been "on the fence" on this one.  Right now I bring my D10 for "active" vacations as my backup.  In good light (like on a beach) the waterproof P&S is not bad and I'll leave the big beast safely in the room.

I still have an old G6 (remember?) that, despite the lag and lack of IS, did a pretty good job for its era.  So, should I get the M and an EF adapter without IS?  Using the adapter, does anyone know if the unit then becomes manual focus only (which I'd think would be a challenge without a viewfinder)?   

So, at this point I think I'll pass but obviously I am ambivalent or I'd not write this post.

With the EF mount adapter, an EF or EF-S lens is fully functional on the EOS M - that includes AF and IS (assuming the lens has IS, of course).

OTOH, I imagine AF'ing a lens like my 85L II will suck the life right out of that little battery...

BTW, I totally agree with the earlier pithy comment about Canon dropping the price of the M to get system buy-in.  If nothing else, I'll be getting the EF mount adapter.  If I actually start using the camera as more than a backup, I'd likely want at least one more EF-M lens (I expect we'll see a telezoom like a 50-150mm announced alongside the M II).  Plus, I'll need a case, perhaps a base plate for mounting to my RRS tripods, etc.

At least it's good for the economy...   ;)

I think under the best of conditions you only get a little more than 200-250 shots per charge.  It will be interesting to find out how an 85L or one of the big teles drain the battery in real life.  Need to buy another 200.00 in batteries Neuro.
