I picked up a LowePro Dashpoint 20 per suggestions here today at a local camera shop.  It fits the M with 22mm lens mounted perfectly!  Now I'm looking for a good wrist strap.  Any suggestions?

I'd think something like this would work if you sabotage the Canon strap that came with the camera so the wrist strap could attach to the lug.

One more bag for consideration:

I picked up a Manfrotto "Amica 10" that seems nicely built.  It has room to carry both the 22mm pancake and one other lens, such as the 18-55, with either mounted. The Italians even added a tag on it saying it fits the EOS-M.

EF 70-200 f4.0 L, EF 17-40 f4.0 L, EF 40mm f2.8, EF 28-135,  Sigma 30mm f1.4 EX, ....

Who needs a bag, hand strap.  Those aren't scratches, they're from the flash on my iPhone5

Cargo/tactical pants/shorts pocket.  There's a reason why you bought a compact camera/lens system and one of them is to shed bulk/weight.

...at home, my current M kit fits nicely in a Pelican Storm im2050 with dividers. 

Canon (especially Canon USA take note  ;) ): there's room in the case for a couple more items, such as the recently-rumored new flash for the M line above the 90 EX and a new EF-M lens...

Thanks neuro, got one myself and it is indeed the best for M+22

I just got mine today - it's a perfect case for the M and 22mm. Great deal for $5 as well.

Yesterday I ordered 2 of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/320951699480 ... recommended by CR member "Cb33"

DON'T BUY IT...too tight. Not happy at all :( :( :(

Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that. Those looked good. Now I wish I hadn't noticed those while looking around for cases.

Don't worry about it cb33 ;), it only $10. I can still return it. I just want to mention here so others don't run into this problem again.
I had ordered 2 from Amazon and paid $4.99 each ... I still haven't received them as I'm currently travelling ... but no problemo if they don't fit, I have other things I can use it for.

That looks like a perfect fit ... I am currently traveling so I bought an el-cheapo case from a local store ... no brand name but it fits well ... does the job for the moment.

Funny, but when using my DSLR, it is on my shoulder exposed to the world, as it were.  But, when transporting it, it is in one of my many bags/packs.  I have a beach vacation coming up.  Decided I did need something so I just ordered:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/171062594573?var=470263068598&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649


So, this arrived.  It is "what it is" and is OK.  Seems to protect the camera pretty well and is lightweight.  But, it makes the camera seem to be too big (the case is larger than the camera).  I'll probably use this at times to protect things and can fit a spare battery and memory within as well.

Of note, I put my wife's NEX-7 with lens in the case and it is also a pretty good fit.  Maybe she'll use it mroe than me!

Since Canon USA is being uncooperative, I was forced to go to the dark side for a strap and a case. The strap is perfect and it fits inside the Dashpoint 20. The case is just big enough for the M w/22mm attached and the zoom beside it (with room for batteries, etc). Note that this case will not fit the M w/zoom attached.
So now I have the Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 20 for camera + lenses + 270EXll + batteries + a little extra
                              Nikon 1 bag for camera + lenses + batteries
                              Dashpoint 20 for just camera

How did you attach the Nikon strap to the EOS-M?  So far, I've been reluctant to destroy the neck strap that came with it, but may have to at some point.

There's no need to destroy it, it's just wrapped on to the adapters. Unwrap the ends, remove the adapters - no destruction required.
