Take $50 off and throw in the EF adapter...   ;D

Still a great deal though...

I just bought two of these, one with each type of lens, for the family to use and share on an upcoming trip. I had been considering just getting the G15 for the trip, but decided this way gives me more options. My kids really like the functionality of the touch screen, since they are used to using an iPod.

Is it true that the M uses a combination of phase and contrast detection, and so if I use my m42 manual lenses on it, will it still give a focus confirmation beep? 

And if I use my 50mm 1.8 lens on it, which on my DSLR has inconsistent focus reliability (due I think to having a cheap focus motor which doesn't seem to work too well with phase detection) it will focus much more reliably because the contrast detection on the M will help it?

Quick question.  I've got a 70D on preorder with the 18-135 STM lens.  Should that lens work out of the box with the EOS-M?

Ordered two of the EOS-M and the first one, 18-55, came today (Amazon).  My B&H (22mm) order should be here Thursday.  So far I really like the size.  I'll play more with it tonight and see if the firmware needs updated.

No, you need the EF-M Lens Adapter to use EF-S or EF lenses on the EOS M.

WOW --- $299 with f2 22mm lens? I'll take one.

I was thinking about Fuji x20 or Sony RX100 as my over sea travel camera.

THANK YOU CR for posting this.

Received mine today ;D
Haven't open it yet...hope it comes with latest firmware.

It cames with latest firmware. Here is my 2cents: AF speed on Canon EOS-M is still much slower than my RX-1.
Bodies: 1DX -- 5D III
Zooms: 16-35L f4 IS -- 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Primes: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 200L f2 IS -- 400L f2.8 IS II

May we expect that B & H will honor the web orders that have already been placed for the camera which is currently on backorder?

I am such a sucker for a sale!  :o
 
I wasn't going to buy into the old tech, but I pushed the button because of price.

M white discontinued on B and H?  I bought one last night - looks like I got it just in time.  I have zero interest in any other lenses, but with the pancake it will make an ideal point and shoot.  I currently have a Panasonic LX5 (white) for my point and shoot, but the dynamic range is just aweful.  Shots with sunlight and shade are virtually useless, even for snapshots.  Hopefully the M will solve my point-and-shoot angst, although I do wish it had a viewfinder.

I ordered at 12:05 AM.  technically the 10th.  I still got the deal, but when I went back to the page the price went back to $600.

If you scroll down the page on the B & H website, the cameras still appear to be offered for 353.95(w/22)  and 399.95 (w/18-55).     


In fact, these include an extra battery, sd card, bag, filter and cloth - which are not included with the $599.95 offerings.

Wow, I was able to pick one up at the last minute. I was looking at the deals yesterday and thought the $299 price for just the M was a good deal...man am I glad I spend too much time on CR!

I'm excited because even if we upgrade if/when another EOS-M-model comes out in the near future, we'd be able to make back most of what we spent on the body while keeping the great lens.

And by the way, I think it's great that B&H won't charge you until it actually ships the product.

Sorry...but I couldn't help for not mentioning that, while holding RX-1 and EOS-M at same time ;D
