Ugh I bought a black one cause the whites were backordered! Should I just take the backorder and go for white, did I make a mistake. Hopefully the black will be just as fun and maybe be less conspicuous.

Sorry bud, but you really should have gotten a white one. They have greater dynamic range and are much more fun...

Really?  The white one is better? Where I can find the information to verify the dynamic range claim?

For what it's worth, in Kai's hands-on review at DigitalRev, at 1:55 he mentions that the white one is a bit slippery compared to the black one due to the glossy finish, where as the black one has a grippy matte finish. Think that's enough to push me towards the black one instead.

Supposedly the white ones are in a glossy finish whereas the black ones are in a matt finish. Some say the white gloss is very slippery. That's why I picked black.

For all of the people who got in on this deal, just FYI - the burst rate with the 22mm (or 18-55) when using servo AF is terrible. Would definitely be worth it to fit one of your EF lenses if you expect to need 4+ FPS with servo during an outing.

I wonder if there will be a similar limitation for all EF-M lenses going forward.

I think you misunderstand the limitation.

"* During continuous shooting, the focusing mode for the shots after the first one depends on the lens used. When an EF-M lens is attached, the AF frame selected will be fixed and the camera will keep focusing the subject within the selected AF frame. When an EF or EF-S lens is attached, AF lock will be used."

In other words, with an EF-M lens, the lens actually refocuses on the subject between shots during the Servo burst, but with an EF or EF-S lens, the focus is fixed with the first shot, and does not track a moving subject.

exactly.

Nikon 1 with latest latest firmware will AF-track with any Nikon AF-S lens attached via adapter ... and much better and faster than EOS-M.

One of many reasons why the EOS M sucks and I won't get one, no matter how seemingly low the price may be.

Could this mean they are coming out with a new version of the EOS M?

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

I'm thinking the same thing.  That new live-view AF is just aching to be put into a mirrorless body!!! 

Can't wait to see the EOS-M Mark II!!

You're right, I was reading that on my phone and missed that part.

Let's hope that future EF-M lenses will improve on this...but we'll probably need to wait on a new body.

Well, yeah - but let's also hope they enable true Servo AF for EF/EF-S lenses that actually tracks moving subjects!

I bought this deal and was happy when it arrived at the UPS depot..but guess what…
I have no idea how it managed to get sooo damaged in the depot…
And with B&H out of stock..i don't know if i'll be able to get a replacement soon.

An intriguing offer has appeared on an Italian site:
 
EOS M + EFM 18-55mm + EFM 22mm + 90 EX + EF Mount adapter = "Full Kit EOS M" = 565€.
 
The vendor (galaxiastore) does not belong to my "preferred list"  :(  (which includes Amazon.it and two other shops) but other Italian people checked it and were happy about it.

P.S. EOS M + EF-M 22mm sells for 455€; EOS M + EF-M 18-55 + 90 EX = 395€

I don't know yet. that was a photo sent to me by UPS. They have to deliver it to me.. But i'm also waiting for a reply from B&H on how to proceed with this..if i should accept it or if they can send me a replacement. I'm ok to keep it if the hardware is undamaged but i won't know until they deliver it to me tomorrow
