It says it's compatible with EF & EF-S lenses, am I missing something? That's the only reason I'd buy this.

And herein lies my dilemma, Canon EOS M or T2i as the family beach, all around fun camera, when the 5D III is left at home. Your thoughts?

Budget- About $300 (Which puts the RX100 out of reach for now)

I wish I could get a price close to that here in the UK. It's almost twice the price here :-(

The truth often is. Just Google "eos m focus speed" if you are in denial.

Have you used the camera or do you just read reviews? Just the Canadian ones are slow

Well, I just contacted Adorama since I got the 18-55 kit for $549 last Wednesday. Now, it's at $349. Perhaps if they are kind they will refund the $200 back to my CC.

The EOS M with the new firmware is, in my opinion, slightly faster in AF lock than the Canon G15. It still has a relatively long black out time.

They are down to $299 at Amazon too

Great price!

I was feeling a little green-eyed envy that many were getting the $299 deal after I purchased mine for $479 from amazon a month ago. I just called customer service and asked if I could receive a price adjustment and they refunded me the difference. An awesome little camera just got that much more awesome!

Now I get to decide the 20mm or the zoom.

Well, I am pretty sure if you visit this site, you will find they are just EOS M owners and most of them complain about the slow AF. Probably 95% of them are Americans.

If I were in the market for a smaller system to supplement my 6D, in the vein of 'take this and go shoot that' when out with family or friends, I'd jump on this, but I can't say whether I'd go for the prime or the zoom. I almost wish there was a kit with both for $150-200 more, and hell, throw in the Canon EF adapter for another $100, kit price; then I'd call it an investment.

Right now, I'd probably go for the zoom; there aren't any STM zooms for the 6D, I'm not buying any more EF-S stuff with my 60D now sold, and I have the 40/STM (which is the same basic thing). I'd miss out on the most compact function, but I'd have an STM zoom in the kit, and that's worth something.

Get both and sell the second body for $150-$200 and still come out ahead on the lenses.
If only one, I like the kit with the 22mm 2.0. It works in lower light and fits in a small soft case that can be worn on my belt almost unnoticed by me or others.

Great deal though.

I did visit the site. 5 weeks ago. I'm on there. Obviously you only read parts of it.

Yeah, I guess I didn't read these parts. Bad me.

On the other hand, I can never recommend this one for those really need fast AF response. It is nothing close to 'quick'.

The auto focus is dead slow with EFS lens - 2 sec or more

And yes the focus is slow, but I can live with it.

it's not the fastest focusing camera around

Same comments as others regarding the focus being slow but can live with that,

the focusing is downright awful... not just slow for me, but completely useless in actually locking focus in low light or close-up/macro shooting (in any light). It seems to want to focus on...Show more

Imagemaster,

Fred posts this thread for those interested and you keep wanting to crap on it. I'm not going to copy and paste other sites comments on here

Okay, You win. This camera sucks.

PS, thanks for the GFY PM
