p.8 #1 · Canon EOS-M with EF-M 22mm f/2 lens for $299


Just got mine with the zoom yesterday.

After shooting with it around the neighborhood, I'm extremely happy.
It arrived with the new firmware, and I have NO concern with focus speed for non-action subjects.

The IS is so quiet that I'm still not certain that it is working !

My only complaint is the battery life. After the first full charge, it lasted only for 100 shots! Of course, the screen was on extensively while I worked my way through the manual. So, hopefully the second charge will do better.

This will be my wife's new camera, and it will serve as an emergency backup to my 5D3 on vacation.

I had NO plans on buying a new compact camera, but at these prices who can resist !

To my surprise, Amazon just shipped out my EOS M this morning, and it will be here just in time on Friday. It supposed to be a one to three month wait . My dear Amazon, I love you in the past, and love you even more now!

I bought one with the 22mm at $349 (before they dropped to $299) and still considered it a bargain. Got the Canon Adapter for $70 and the Zoom for $128 from Big Value Inc while they had them.
I guess this was the wrong thread for posting my comment on the possibility of a future the EVF or not. Definitely don't hold back getting one of these cameras. EVF or no.

Anyone know if a Flipbac works well with this or if there's a good 35mm optical viewfinder with accurate framing?

Been following your adventure and glad to hear you'll get the EOS M in time for the vacation. I also hope you can get a refund on the EOS M that the USPS has misplaced.

Then again, you may have jinxed it and tomorrow you'll have two EOS M's delivered.

It took a good drop in price to get people interested in this camera. Not that I wasn't before but now it's priced the same as a S110 so why not!

Taking an internet break and going to Cape Cod with just my M's for a couple of weeks.

Happy shooting

Big Value Inc had the adaptor and both lenses (Canon white box) for a while, with the 22mm at like $99, the zoom at $128, and the adaptor at $70. It works fine, but my wife has been having some health issues and is now in the hospital, so I haven't spent much time with it, but have been following the threads with interest, during quiet times.

I saw a Rainbow brand AF M adaptor on Amazon for $70, but don't know how it would compare to the Canon.

p.8 #15 · Canon EOS-M with EF-M 22mm f/2 lens for $299


Just got my EOS-M and I love it so far! Really neat little camera! Came from Amazon and had the latest 2.02 firmware already. Focuses like a champ. Has a semi decent burst with my new Lexar 16GB 600X SD cards. Can't believe I only paid $300! Crazy! ...buy and extra battery

As a day to day carry camera it is great! Much more manageable than my 5DIII 24-70II combo to take with me every where. Nice to have a backup cam too.

I just received mine EOS-M + 22mm + 2.02 firmware from Amazon as well. I also have a Panasonic GX1 + 20mm f/1.7 for comparison.

Things I like after ~10 minutes of usage:
- Size: The GX1 is ~1 cm wider, otherwise both camera bodies have similar height and thickness. The Canon 22mm and Panasonic 20mm are roughly the same size as well. This is pretty amazing since the Canon has a larger sensor.
- Touch screen: It is quite responsive and the UI is surprisingly good and straightforward to use. After a few minutes I was able to figure out how to do the major things such as change the camera mode, shutter speed, aperture, etc.
- Appearance: It has a plain black, understated look that I like.

Things I dislike:
- Strap mount: It's not a standard eyelet or flat slot, but looks like a proprietary Canon design that requires a strap with a special attachment. This is annoying since I typically use my own black straps.
- Focusing speed: It's consistently slower than my GX1 + 20mm. It's still usable, but at what I consider the bare minimum in focusing speed for usability. I noticed that the Canon 22mm's focusing mechanism moves the entire lens structure (not sure what the technical term is), so hopefully it'll be faster with the 18-55 that I have on order.

Overall I'm actually pretty happy with the camera for $300. It'll be a nice emergency backup body for trips, but feels like a capable camera in its own right. Hopefully future iterations of the camera body significantly improve the focusing speed.

Edit: I just realized that I can detach the Canon strap from its attachment device, so I can use my own straps. Yay

Just got my EOS-M w/22mm today and have had about 10 min with it too. I'm 100% on board with your assessment. Sweet little camera and fun! Took a little bit to orient to the touch screen, but I'm getting the hang of it now and find it to be a nice configurable little camera!

Also got my long awaited GR today (I know - gear head) and it's awesome, but I find my self playing with the EOS-M more for some reason! Fun stuff for just $299. Amazing.

*sigh* Mine's still pending at B&H, I have a feeling it's going to never come in. Freaking bummer Fingers crossed for expected 18 July availability (bumped from 11 July)

Just checked Amazon and they still show both the EOS-M w/22 ($299) and the EOS-M w/18-55 ($349) in stock.
