What is this thread all about? From what I gather some dude ordered something that was on sale and then what? It went out of stock? Delay? So what? Suck it up and deal with it!

The next EOS M camera is aparently a long rant about Adorama's electronic order system!

Was the sale marked as a clearance sale or was the disclaimer "while supplies last" used?
I can't speak for any other retailer, but at Adorama, we didn't (You know that CR isn't a retailer, right?)

Not following you. You did or didn't what?

How did you get the idea I thought CR was a retailer? It was clear that I thought that if the sale was a clearance sale, CR, as a reliabe resource for information, would have reported it as such.

It's apparently over your head.

Seems to be over yours.  Start an adorama bashing thread if you must (and if the mods allow it) let this thread get back on topic.

The arguments lost when you start being abusive. 

Mods! Intervene, please.

Lol! I was smart enough to buy the EOS M when the priced dropped!  ;)

How did you get the idea I thought CR was a retailer? It was clear that I thought that if the sale was a clearance sale, CR, as a reliable resource for information, would have reported it as such.

You asked "Was the sale marked as a clearance sale or was the disclaimer "while supplies last" used?

I responded: "I can't speak for any other retailer, but at Adorama, we didn't"

You said: "I am curious as to whether the retailers involved knew this was a clearance sale"

As far as I am aware, Adorama is the retailer being discussed in this thread


You said "CR didn't mention it in their announcement. If they knew, I would think they would have made the distinction"

Adorama didn't classify it as  a "clearance sale" so there is no reason to suppose that CR, an Adorama affiliate, would do so either.

You  said; "I do not recall seeing this on any of the websites I visited looking for the item", which suggests that none of the retailers whose websites you  visited classified it as a 'clearance sale' either.

I am really sorry for your disappointment, and the disappointment of everyone else who wasn't able to jump on this deal in time, but when an item is in limited supply, and  the demand is greater than that supply, someone will miss out.

Signing up for special offer emails from Adorama, and or following one of our Twitter accounts or our Facebook page might get you ahead of the game for similar offers in the future.

As was mentioned by someone else, my B&H invoice for the M + 22 indicated a $300 manufacturer's instant rebate.

Either of the big two is just fine. I happen to have an account at B&H, shipping using my business UPS number, CC on record and I'm happy. My Brother is an Adorama fan. They are both wonderful. (end of that debate)

I jumped on the $299 EOS-M with the 22MM because it's just what I've wanted for years. Small APS-C, pocketable. I've had a G1-X, G-12, and S-90 and sold them within a month. So for someone who wants a new model that might be here in 2015, possibly for double the price, have fun watching and waiting, and save your money.

Discontinued, clearance, just words. It's the same camera as it was in June... but now for $299! Mirrorless camera with lens, 18MP. Some people are just best at finding fault and what's wrong in life. Or maybe just making themselves miserable? I'm looking forward to my new EOS-M.

I was not in the market for the M, in fact I rarely pay attention to what's new as long as what I got is working. I check CR every few months to see what might be coming down the pipe and I saw the Canon M deal, and in fact I had not even know about the M before. I read some reviews and saw that Canon released a firmware that fixed the issues, so I bought one with the 22mm. Great camera and ridiculously cheap. My wife liked it so much, I bought her one with the 18-55mm.

People that bag on this camera at the $299 pricepoint crack me up. What decent camera can you buy for $299 new these days? I own a 60D and a 5Dc and this little guy can spar with them, and go home in a coat pocket.

I'm glad you're amused. I've owned a G10 for several years (plus a 5D3, a 7D and a slew of lenses) so, for me, the real alternative is not in buying a different camera, but rather not buying any camera at all right now and waiting for something that fills my needs better, even if it is more expensive.

We invested an enormous amount of time and $$$ in this http://www.prweb.com/releases/prweb2012/9/prweb9875018.htm  and were let down badly.

Don't forget, every $ we put into development has to come from somewhere.....


oh boy....such a big let down. I hope you get your moneys worth ...eventually

But the M is filling my needs and it was cheap.....

Personally I got the M so I could get my 1DSIII off of the 100-400 to be used for other things. I've been testing the M on my 28-300 with a 2X TC with manual focusing and the 100-400 with a 1.4 TC. The camera really cuts down the weight on the end of these lenses and I have no complaints about the IQ. I'll probably try to find another at the sale price to go on the other lens. I've actually tried the 100-400 with the 1.4 + the 2.0 TC with the M and the IQ is reasonable, though not for low light use.
Using these in MF mode is hidden in the English user manual PDF on page 126 for those like me whom had trouble finding it. Turn the LCD brightness to Max for daylight use.
