Great idea. To bad I dont have an EOS-M. Thinking of getting one with the 11-22mm, 22mm f2 and 70-200mm f4IS with EF-M. For my travel set up or a 70D with 10-22mm 40 2.8 and 70-200 f4IS.
I see that, either way, you are planning on getting the 70-200 f/4 IS ... in which case you are better off getting the 70D + 10-22 + 70-200. While the EOS-M is very good with the 11-22 lens, the AF sucks when it comes to 70-200 + the adapter. Also, the weight size advantage that you gain on the EOS-M+11-22 is sort of lost as you also need/carry an adapter to use the 70-200 ... and every time you change lenses, you need to change two things instead of one and it can get pretty annoying. I've have onwed/used the EOS-M with the EF-EF-M adapter, which was great when it cines to image quality but not at all convenient and not to mention the awfully slow autofocus with that combo.
The 70D + 10-22 + 70-200 is a fantastic combo, something the EOS-M just cannot match, be it image quality, low ISO performance, AF speed, tilt/flip & touch screen etc... the 70D is a far superior camera in comparison. Also, currently the AF in video mode of 70D is far superior to any Canon DSLR ... when it comes to video the 70D makes my 5D MK III look ancient. If you can, try it at your local store to appreciate its video performance.

Velcro?  What about a power drill and a 1/4-20 thumbscrew?


Thanks, Dear Friend mrzero.
Thanks  for  your great Idea that I do not think about, BUT, I ask my wife  for this Mirror, and I will go to buy the High price perfume for her, which cost more than some of my L Lens ---Ha, Ha, Ha.
Here are the Photos of your IDEA.
Thanks again
Surapon

That's cool Surapon! Now all that remains is cutting off the excess of the mirror box extending below, and in front of the camera body :)

So much for mirror less...  8)
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

Wait, with all these accessories added to the EOS-M, isn't a 100D smaller?

Thank you so much, my dear friend mrsfotografie.
From  your great IDEA, I already Change EOS-M Mirrorless DSLR, to Full size Flippable Mirror EOS-M - MC. ( MC = Macro capability for Lazy Photographer like me).
Ha, Ha, Ha---It must have 2 Heads to make it = Right.

My dear friend Surapon, that looks really great! I bet the camera is now also easier to hold? I hope your wife is not mad for you destroying her mirror :D

By the way I like your old-school FD style lens cap :)
