But I'll thrown in another thought for free - the X-100 is a camera that people want to use, whereas the Eos-M is a camera many people purchase simply because it is heavily discounted.

And then discover that they want to use it. There's a reason that the M, which has practically been forgotten by Canon USA, has such a strong following. I was one of the people who was hesitant about buying it even at the heavily discounted price, only to end up loving it and using it as much or more then my DSLRs.

And to the poster who claimed the Fuji 'blows away' the M on IQ: the X100s is a little bit better at high ISO. There's no real difference any where else. (What is it with photographers and hyperbole? "Blows away" would be a 5D3 at 3200 vs. a 20D at 3200. Tiny differences most will never notice even in huge prints != "blow away.")

As I see it there are three major differences between these cameras that would determine OP's choice.

* Viewfinder. M has none, X100 has one of the best. I find I do not miss a VF on the M, though to be fair I have DSLRs and use those with subject matter where I probably would miss a VF.

* Analog vs. touch screen control. This is a matter of personal preference, though admittedly most would prefer more physical controls. I like the M's touchscreen, but I do wish it had 2 dials for directly accessing shutter and aperture in manual mode.

* Lens interchangeability. Fuji X100s has one lens, the M has 3 dedicated and can take hundreds more via adapters. Notably, it is 100% AF/AE/aperture control compatible with Canon's EF/EF-S lenses via adapter.

Just depends on what you want out of the camera.

+1. These points summarize the key differences.  I have owned an EOS-M since July.  As with many others, I only bought it because of the discounted price and lens compatability.  After using it for awhile, I realized the M had a lot to offer and the it quickly became my camera of choice when I want to go light, and my backup body for my 6D.

I own both the M and the x100s. I can tell you that that on paper by all measureable specs, they would lead one to believe that the IQ isn't all that different. However, in actual usage, I find that images just look different. That isn't to say the noise levels are lower at various ISOs. Just saying that the final images that come out of the Fuji just look better (to my eye and most of my friends/loved ones).

FWIW, I haven't taken one still with the M for a while. I will say though that it is a nice quick video capture tool that I can set on a flat surface or my little joby minipod (in servo) to allow me to actually join my family in the moments.

What it boils down to for me is making images. There are plenty of things that the M brings to the table that the Fuji doesn't. Personally though, I found that most of those things aren't enough to make me reach for it....ever. The camera I have with me everyday is the Fuji. The ergonomics, image rendering, and differing feature set (for me) makes it the buddy camera for me since it is everywhere I go.

+ 100 for me too, I just let my wife use my two old Point and shoot/ Pocket  cameras, And I use my 3 days old EOS-M from now as the Smart Pocket ( Large Pocket ) camera.

I think it should be added to the principle benefits that differentiate from an X100:

4) excellent (for the price) video output

5) ability to mount pretty much any alt lens in the world via adapter (e.g., shoot a video using an M mount lens from the 50s).

Obviously, the photo ergonomics cannot compare with the x100. But, I'd observe that its touch screen is really quite well done, better than any other I've used (sony, olympus, panasonic).

Once you bring X100s into the mix, that's a different story because the up tick in IQ (but thats a whole different price league).
