Depending on your needs, the EOS M + EF-M 11-22 IS (imported from Canada) could be a great option. If you're going to be out and about with the combo and weight is a concern, it's a fantastic solution and won't cost you any more than the Canon 10-22 and will deliver better IQ. You also gain IS but lose some speed. But, for most landscapes, architecture, etc., you won't be shooting wide open anyway so it won't matter.
yeah the EF-M most likely wont fit his 60D...
If you're going to come back with sarcasm, at least make it of a higher caliber. That was weak.
As to your comment, had you actually READ what I wrote, you'd see that I recommend a CAMERA AND A LENS. The M+11-22 combo is CHEAPER than the 10-22 by itself. Additionally, the IQ is better, it's lighter, and you gain IS. Thus, making it a more portable and better quality solution than what some are recommending IF that's the only lens he needs when he takes it out, it's the perfect solution. If not, then it was simply another option he won't take (several options have been mentioned and he can't take them all, so it wouldn't be the only one). I'm just trying to offer a solution that might seem outside of box, but could be potentially perfect - again, DEPENDING ON HIS NEEDS.
Again, if you want to be sarcastic/smart @$$/whatever, step up your game. Also, learn to read and think critically.
