I too have been reaching for the M over the 5DIII + Zeiss 35/2 quite often recently. The weight/size + IQ is a really nice package, especially getting it on sale during the clearance.

Dear friend Surapon. Glad you're enjoying your EOS-M. I have seen in other threads that you are experiencing all kinds of accessories and lenses that make M larger and heavier camera than any other mirrorless. ??? Does a part of the game, use a camera in ways never imagined? ::) Maybe some day I'll see him using his M with EF 800mm and 580EX. :P

If you're immersed into a Canon system, Eos m with the 22mm is just too awesome for portability. I love my Canon 6D + 40mm pancake combo for food blogging but when a friend let me hold the eos m + 22mm I must admit... I started looking up current prices, hehe.

Good Monday night to dear Teacher, Mr. ajfotofilmagem.
Yes, Sir, The Tiny EOS-M which have a lot of PRO Functions, Plus Touch Screen LCD with control commands, And This Tiny Camera can be Expand to Be Big Camera Body with Hand Grip and L Bracket to carry the Weight of " L " Lenses = That Great Design that I love from Canon So far. Yes, Sir, In the Early Morning and In the Mid of the Night, I can carry EOS-M with 22 mm. Lens to shoot the Best Photos with out Afraid of the Bad guys come to rob me, If Yes, I just ask for the Memory card in the camera and let them have the Camera and Lens, Just $ 335 US Dollars. But This  Tiny EOS-M still have the Slow Servo AF, Not Fast enough for take the Flying Birds with my 600 mm.  And The Continuous Shooting  very slow----But Just for $ 335 US Dollars = Heavenly Portable Camera for me.
Have a great Night, Sir.

Good Night, Dear Chosenbydestiny.
Yes, 6D + 40 mm. Pancake Lens are more PROFESSIONAL in your Food Blogging Business, in the eyes of the People around you, But For EOS-M  and 22 mm F/ 2.0 are super portable and super / beautiful Sharp Photos at the Control Natural Light, Which Great for your Foods Photography too, But  the System = $ 335 US Dollars = Super cheap for your spare camera and spare Lens.
Nice to talk to you, Sir.

Two cheers for the EOS-M! Is it perfect? Of course not. It is a whopper of a sensor for a tiny package that's mostly fun to use with a rather fast and high quality lens? In my slice of reality - yes, yes, and yes.

I've 'forced' myself to take nothing by my EOS-M w/ 20mm f2 pancake on a couple weekend hiking/landscape photography trips when I needed to pack as light as possible. I've returned home w/ a surprising assortment of engaging pics that stun my friends when I tell them I captured them w/ my "pocket camera."

The depth of field often surprises me w/ the f2 pancake. See attached for a sample.

I'm glad you like the EOS M Surapon! It's nice to hear about positive experiences with the M instead of all the bashing it seems to get. For the price of a decent point and shoot you get a heck of a lot of camera.

I've started using it a lot more now and recently on vacation I had the same thoughts as you Surapon - if someone robs me I'll only be down a few hundred bucks but if someone takes my 5D2 I am well and truly f$$$'d. I can't afford to replace it. I am seriously thinking about leaving my 5D2 at home next holiday and just taking the little guy!

Luckily as I live in Japan I can easily buy the EF-M 11-22mm lens (waiting for the price to come down). I think that would do me nicely as I really only shoot landscapes and buildings when on holiday. Would be nice to see Canon make a small telephoto prime to round off the kit. Currently my tele option is an old FD 50mm f/1.4 via adapter. The combo is surprisingly small and has a nice weight. Manual focus only but Magic Lantern helps with that. I also have the FD 100mm f/2.8 but haven't used it yet.

Another great advantage is that you don't need a large, expensive, carbon fibre tripod to support it. That means you can do all the long exposure stuff, possibly star fields etc, with a much smaller tripod. I tried it with my Gorillapod hybrid and it works just fine! Great for group shots in restaurants etc.
5D II | 17-40L | 24-105L | 70-200 f4L IS | 135L | SY 14mm f/2.8 | Sigma 50 f/1.4

EOS M | 22 f/2 | 11-22 IS
