Interesting about the new lens patents. I bought the EOS M pretty much hoping for the wide angle zoom. Apparently Canon wasn't interested in selling it to us. Rumors say the EOS M2 won't be sold here either. I doubt this new super zoom will make it to the US. I just bought a SL1 and will be selling my EOS M with kit lens and adapter. Yeah, I'll miss its size and uniqueness, but at least with the SL1 I can use all the lenses I already have without adapter and performance should be a little better.
