I don't think there is any point in complaining about possible leaked photos but that being said...
I have not been super excited about a canon since the s95 and I really really want to be. everything seams to be kind of a letdown.
hoping and semi-confident that will all change soon. I hope hope hope.

Looks like a toy.  Has fewer controls than our little P&S SX 120.

Fewer external controls, true. But we might expect a touchpad interface to any control needed. I think this is far from a toy, and perhaps one of the smartest ideas that Canon has had lately. We will see with the official announcement, but it seems to me that Canon has decided to produce a bare-bones model to begin with and may price it aggressively. The killer feature will be the ability to autofocus relatively well with the vast array of current EF and EF-S lenses (with a simple adaptor), and with a carefully selected set of new small lenses starting with the 22. Your SX can't do that, and nor can any other camera this small.

Besides the possible sensor size one detail I do notice is that theres a round space behind the mount which could allow for the very close backfocus distances that were rumoured a few months ago with the mirrorless 18-55m patent.

I don't know if it has been noted before in the thread, but there doesn't seem to be any way to easily dial-in your exposure like on the EOS bodies (and by easily, I mean dedicated buttons / wheels). Even the S95 has a dedicated ring in the front to help you dial in aperture, shutter speed or ISO.

At first glance I thought the knurled ring around the shutter could have been an input dial, same with the narrower ring around the rear buttons, however, it seems from the plan view that this is a mode switch between video and stills, and if the camera is aimed squarely at auto powershotters I don't think they would attempt to replicate the front and rear qcd controls of larger EOS cameras.

Could be a very nice touch for the future though.

looks a LOT more like aps-c is the sensor size.  perfect

yes! And the 18-55 has IS as well. But the photo is obviously carefully taken from an angle that conceals aperture info. ;-)

Would be nice with a fixed f/2.8 for the zoom, or at least a fixed f/4.

Probably a boooring 3.5-5.6.

I'm still at odds with the hotshoe and the thought of this being entry level/consumer whatnot. On one side it seems as if it doesn't have the controls for a top tier body and thus a pop up is needed. On the other hand perhaps it's all touch screen and it's much more sophisticated then these images belie. I guess time will tell. All in all it's not for me, I'm waiting for September's news.

Thanks!

I have no interest in kit zoomz or small speedlights, but I'm sure many are :) I'm sure glad that Canon decided to go with a real hot-shoe flash. Having a hot-shoe is a good thing :) :) I can't use PocketWizards on my Sony NEX 5n for lack of a hot-shoe :( :( :(

Now where are the pix of the EF to M adapter ???

I wonder how soon till Richard Franiec http://www.kleptography.com/rf/ has a finger grip for the EOS M. He makes these grips for the Canon S90/S95 and S100.

Sure, but how good is its call quality, and can I play Angry Birds for very long without running the battery down?
