Man, all this talk of super-cheap, soon-to-be-discontinued, highly-portable EOS Ms is encouraging me to buy one.  Must ... resist ... urges.

Put it in the pocket ;D

+1 that's why I bought it. No straps, cases, lanyards, belts or whistles. Just the body and 22mm f/2.

Ok, so my EOS M + 22mm f/2 kit arrived today, but my Dashpoint 20 is still en route.  However, last night i had a mini epiphany, and it turned out to be a good one.  When I switched my Speedlite setup from a 600EX-RT and two 430EX II's to three of the 600's, I bought two more Lowepro Quick Flex Pouch 75 AW cases for the 600's, and was left with one of the Lowepro Quick Flex Pouch 55 AW cases for a 430EX II that I no longer had.  So last night I thought, I wonder if the EOS M will fit?  (As a side note, I use a Lowepro Lens Exchange 200 AW as an ideal case for transporting my disassembled RRS PG-02 LLR gimbal head, and a Lowepro Lens Case 9x13 for my RRS BH-55, so I don't mind using a case intended for a flash to hold a camera, instead.)

It turns out that the EOS M with the pancake lens mounted fits very nicely in a Lowepro Quick Flex Pouch 55 AW.  There's a small internal pocket that will hold a battery and spare SD card, there's room for a strap to be rolled up inside the case, and the case has a Sliplock attachment and a tuck-away all-weather cover.  There's a snap closure in addition to the zipper, for quick access when actively shooting.
Cases for every small thing. You are a case study for case management of cases  ;D ;D

Holy Case!! That's some organization :o :o
I do agree with your caseology though. It should not be an inch more than what you need for an occasion and readily accessible  :) it's no good fumbling around in the huge case for small package and miss the moment !!!!

If one is looking for a small shoulder bag, the Lowepro Compact Courier 80 ( http://store.lowepro.com/shoulder-bags/compact-courier-80 ) is the perfect one, stylish and pratical . It fits my M with the 22mm plus the 90EX as well as spare batteries. It should also able to fix a EF-M zoom lenses which I do not own.

Bought my "case" at the dollar store. It's basically just a soft foamy pouch pencil case thingy but does the job. I leave the strap hanging out of it for easy access. Dump the whole thing in a zip compartment in my camera bag or backpack.

I expect I have a similar "pile" of cases/pouches if I pulled them all together.  Only difference is I use a Kinesis belt  system so you'd need to replace all the Lowepro labels with Kinesis labels.  I started using a belt and pouches to carry my stuff in 1998 - right about when Lowepro came out with their first belt system.  I switched to Kinesis a while after that.

It's a bit of an overkill for the EOS-M, but it fits well in one of the pouches with all the other stuff I'm carrying.

The new type of strap lug used with EOS M...is it possible to buy just the lug from somewhere to make a homemade wrist band? I don't want to butcher :o the included strap just to obtain the lug.

Is it really "butchering" if it only takes a minute or so to undo the strap to use the end fitting and then another minute or so to put it back together later?

Coming from 5Dmk ii this was really a great buy, specifically at $299 price point. This is excellent camera for the price. Yes it is not 5Dmkii but atleast it is good enough for everyday use and much better than any point and shoot. The best feature I like about camera is focusing using touch screen on LCD.
I'm in same boat could not decide on what I should get. I like idea of Capture clip system but not sure if I want to leave EOS M hanging as it may scratch the LCD.
Is there any good LCD protector for EOS M ?

I don't have the EOS M arrived in mail yet, so I just assumed I may need to "butcher".

I use Zagg Invisible shield on all my electronics. They can be 15-20$ depending on what they are for. For EOS M, I ordered a screen protector made for an older model Samsung smartphone, with 4 inch screen. I will just trim it to fit to EOS M screen. Why am I doing that? Because it's now just $2.

My "M" arrived today, and as I sit here waiting for the battery to charge, I can't help but think that this is the camera that could fit in a shoulder holster...

It's smaller than a PPK (albeit a little thicker)...Bond, James Bond.

I bought a dashpoint 20 from my local Bestbuy, only $4.99 (apparently they were clearing  the inventory). The M22 fits perfectly in it. I too am looking for a wrist strap.
