... I can also use as a wildlife shooter with the focal length extending crop factor, assuming it can really handle the longer L lenses.

I'm sure it can 'handle' them. I'm not at all sure it will focus fast enough to be a good wildlife camera.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Just hope the phase AF will be faster than the 650D.
The biggest selling point is able to take ef lenses, nothing else better than others.

don´t you think the AF will be as good as 5 year old cameras who do wildlife shots pretty well?

and for the handling.. i advice a tripod for longer lenses with a nice wimberley head. :)

If it's reasonably cheap I can see myself getting one with the 22mm and the EF-adapter to fill the gap between phone and DSLR. Otherwise I'll just get the 40mm for the DSLR ;-)

Are you referring to five year old cameras such as the 1D III or the 40D? If so, my answer would have to be a resounding "heck, no!"

Somebody mentioned battery life. In addition I can imagine other restrictions, such as will they work with extenders.

As for focus speed yes it will obviously/probably be a mediocre wildlife cam, but I don't want the expense and size of a real setup, just something I can use to have fun with and squeeze a few shots off.

I'd like to know whether the new EF-M lenses will fit on a DSLR.  The 22mm F2 would be great on a crop body.

I'm wondering if this would make a good astrophotography camera taking over the cheaper DSLR models. As long as they left a USB socket on the body and it can be fully controlled by EOS Utilities. No mirror slap to worry about, and less weight too.
Canon 1D, 300D IR, 450D full spectrum, 600D, 5D2, 7D, EF 35/2, 50/1.8, 85/1.8, 135/2+SF, 70-300L, 100-400L

About the size and weight of a Sony NEX 5n.

Here's the specs:
Canon - 108.6mm x 66.5mm x 32.3mm, 298 grams with battery and memory card
Sony - 110.8mm x 58.8mm x 38.2mm, 269 grams with battery and memory card

The NEX 5n sells for $599.99 without lens and $699.99 with 18-55mm lens. We will find out Canon's prices tomorrow.

Either the EF 85mm f/1.8 (425 grams) or EF 100 f/2.0 (460 grams) would be a good combination with the EF M. Add the EM 22mm f/2.0 and I'd have all the lenses I'd need. YMMV

yeah i wonder too how they could make good images in the past.....

to be honest i have not touched the hybrid AF in the 650D yet.

It's interesting how many photos this toy can do on one battery. Assuming it's pocket size, the battery won't be big. It will run in live view mode for all the time and if you put bigger EF lens onto it, the same battery has to run AF and sometimes IS as well.

Is it to be higher than weider? "Camera size: 66.5mm (width) 108.6mm (height) x 32.3mm (depth)" Those dimensions refer to the portrait mode? :)

Don't know how it compares to the size of the Pentax K-01, but the K-01 uses the same battery as the medium format Pentax 645D, so it's possible it might take the same battery as the 650d/T4i
