Second, anyone try a "shorty 40" ... on the M with an adapter?

Yes - works great!

Thinking to buy this camera as a backup to my 6D + to get a crop factor. I've got a Sigma 50-500mm lens. does anyone know if it'll work alright with the EF adapter? or is it just the canon lenses that work well with it?

Thanks, Neuro. 

You may have gathered from another thread that I just did order this with the 22 off Amazon.  I almost cannot believe I did it but am justifying this after carrying a much heavier kit through Central Asia (the images are well worth the weight).  I still love my big stuff, but will use this for family outings and such.

I'll use the 22 and maybe get the adapter for my 40  and (cause the 24-105 is large) trying the old 28-105 I have sitting in a box.  I know there is no IS.  I wonder if this lens on the crop sensor would be pretty decent.  Now, I just gotta remember the old "1/focal length is the minimum shutter speed" thing......

Yep, and careful with your shooting mode. In Av, Canon automatically applies that rule, but with the 22mm that means it drops the shutter to 1/30-1/40 s before raising ISO - and with people as subjects, that's too slow.  There's no minimum shutter speed in Av mode setting like on some cameras. Fortunately, the M has Auto ISO in M mode, so you can set a faster shutter, pick your aperture, and Auto ISO handles the exposure.
