The color is great in that series.  Very nice results!
Thanks, Dustin!  I found the M pretty frustrating to use after using SLRs in the past for similar shots, but the lens delivered some great results.

That about sums it up.  The sensor is surprisingly good on the M.  I haven't tried a 70D (or 7DII, obviously), but the M is cleaner than any previous APS-C camera that I've used, including the 60D.  But yes, it has some serious shortcomings.  I found those magnified in a recent review of the Tamron 18-200 VC for the M when shooting on the telephoto end sometimes.  Shooting tele without a viewfinder is NOT fun, particularly when trying to isolate details like a bird in a tree.

I could see the M being very awkward for 320mm equivalent photos but like you said, for most general purpose stuff, it's a great little camera.  Wildlife and concert photography are torture tests of any gear, so that fact that you can get something out of it says quite a bit, and the files are very clean.
