i does not seem like canon put a lot of effort into marketing the m here in the states. i don't think i have ever seen an ad for one, they are not in any of the camera shops around here, best buy does not have them in the stores either. in fact i don't think i have ever seen one in person.

Oh my, the Philippines will be getting this before the US. Take that Apple!

It's just that most Europeans are smart enough to refuse buying sub-par products at grossly inflated prices.

Rubbish. Mirrorless cameras are simply not popular in Europe & N. America, regardless of brand and price. In Europe, for every mirrorless camera sold, 8.5 DSLRs are being sold. If you think Sony (or insert your favorite mirrorless camera manufacturer here, Olympus/Panasonic/Fujifilm etc) mirrorless cameras are selling well, think again.

I am not sure if it's going to Philippines. Have you seen any official release? I think the EOS M2 will only be available in Japan and China.

Not rubbish. At 299 euro lots and lots of europeans - including many germans - would have bought an eos-m plus 22 lens. Unlile US citizens it was just never offered to them at that price. Probably canon thought europeans would be  more stupid. Or they were sitting on much less special treatment eos m waste around here.

Anyway, I would not buy an eos m1 or m2 no matter how low the price. but not because i consider a big fat mirrorslapper to be better than mirrorless cameras, but rather because the eos m comes without a viewfinder. :-)
