Absolutely, and in my opinion it is invaluable. I was planning to upload a youtube tutorial about it this weekend.

It's pretty buggy,
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=8347.0 and the interface turns off after 5 seconds but the Frames Per Second feature is useful, plus focus peeking, zebras
 etc.

I don't notice any bugs at all, but in truth I am using tragic lantern for the EOS-M.

I just got around to adding Magic Lantern to my EOS-M this weekend and wish I'd done it sooner.   I hadn't realized that it adds focus peaking and the magnified 10x image embedded on the viewscreen!  I have a couple of adapters for Konica and Leica lenses that I hadn't used much because manual focus was a little difficult on the screen but with the new tools it's easy.

Are you sure that is a 10X?? not a 2X or 3X???

I've been using ML on my EOS M since I purchased it. Works great!

I've been using the nightly builds, updating on my camera maybe once a week. Not many bugs.

There one bug that is consistent is while in the ML menu, if left untouched for a few seconds, it automatically closes. This is actually the same thing that happens on the 6D while in Live View. It's due to the way the Canon interface behaves in Live View. It's something they're working on.

Issue tracker: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issue/1974/6d-in-live-view-mode-ml-menu-times-out

Otherwise, ML on the EOS M is amazing.

seems if i use a slower 45mb/s 32 GB card it works ok
it was using a brand new 60mb/s 128GB transcend card that ML doesnt play nice with
but the card works fine in the camera if ML isnt being used

wierd...

There's a tidbit in their install guide about using a 32gb or smaller card to first install ML. But after the initial install, larger cards work ok.

Not sure if this applies to you, but check it out: http://www.magiclantern.fm/install.html

see this is why i love this site...

seems it didnt like trying the standard approach on the card but using macboot and making it bootable then putting ML on it worked a treat

thanks for the tip :D
