No surprise: EOS M is Amazon top seller
« on: July 18, 2013, 03:19:41 AM »
The EOS M now occupies the number 3 and 9 spots on their best seller list for digital cameras (22mm kit and 18-55mm kit respectively).  The list is updated hourly so by the time you click on the link it could of course, be different.  Here's the list: http://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Electronics-Digital-Cameras/zgbs/electronics/281052

As I said in the subject, it's no surprise.  The value you get for your $300-350 is unmatched!  What I do find interesting is that it says the 22mm kit has been in the top 100 for 34 days - well before the $300 price tag.  The 18-55mm kit has only been in the top 100 for 17 days which aligns with the discounted price.
Gear: 5D Mark IV, 5Ds, 135L, 85LII, 35LII, 100L, 70-200/2.8L IS II, 16-35/4L IS, Sigma 50mm Art, 24-105 IS STM, Canon 600 EX II-RT (x2), Yongnuo 600 EX RT-II (x3), ORLIT RoveLight 610 RT, and lots of modifiers

Its pretty well known that the average buyer goes for price.  Canon needs to get a large number of M series owners, so they can market lenses to them.  They may even be a loss leader, just to establish a big user base.
 
The danger from doing this is that buyers expect a low price, and won't buy if they think the price will drop.
