Well, I finally had an "oops" moment which has me looking at my Lumix LX with a shattered back screen. I typically use it as a travel camera as my daughter currently lives out of state so I fly to see her each month. I typically have the Lumix with me for that and it takes an okay photo, so it's been a good tool for me.

Now, the rest of my cameras are all EOS bodies and I'm wondering if just buying the EOS-M body to use with my current lenses is worth it, or if I should just find another affordable P&S to get?

I know using the M with the adaptor and the lenses will make it a bit bulky. For those of you that have the EOS-M and something like a 40d or 5d, how do they compare size wise? Or does it only seem useful to carry around with the 22mm on it?

I am pretty sad the Lumix got broken, but it was my own fault. Luckily I was able to get the pics off of it with no issues.

What happened to your Lumix LX?

I got tripped in downtown Chattanooga and even though it was in a carry case it shattered the back screen bad. It's got too many sharp edges now to use with all the broken glass or whatever the material is.

My other idea was to get another Lumix if the batteries and few filter accessories I have would work on the LX5 or LX7. The one I have is the LX3.

I just picked up the EOS M and waiting for the adapter. I would just pick up another Lumix. I did get the eos body for 207 and the adapter for 86 so its a sweet deal to use all of my Canon glass.
The Magic lantern with focusing peeking and time lapse sold me.

Have you loaded Magic Lantern on to your EOS-M yet? If so, how easy was it, and what benefits for still photography do you see?

I'm wondering if the LX7 is the way to go. I'm being told to look into the Fujifilm p&s's for travel use.

Fuji makes some great camera's and I heard the IQ is outstanding. The x20 would be a great travel camera.

It's as easy as copying a file folder onto your SD card and clicking two bottoms.

it's mostly geared for video but does offer some big things for stills, such as cleaner images at higher ISOs.

I have the LX7, & the M. The LX7 is more physically enjoyable to shoot with. The M has slightly less DOF & slightly better IQ, if you print large. Some LX7 shots, & some ultrawide M shots. https://www.flickr.com​/gp/speedync30/wiD54n (external link) https://www.flickr.com​/gp/speedync30/0E7F9E (external link) I haven't got an M specific album, but feel free to browse through the stream & look. I think it's a better comparison seeing shots from the same person using both cameras.
Go M lenses. They are very reasonably priced, offer great IQ, & suit the camera better in size & weight. The whole point of the camera in the first place. Both cameras have their pros & cons. Up to you to decide which suits you better.

Edit -just quickly chucked an M album together, for comparison purposes. A bit of everything chucked in. https://www.flickr.com …0/sets/72157646​044385143/ (external link)

Is the nightly build better than the alpha?

The nightly builds are more to test new features and can be unstable, the alpha build is a stable version. I've been using it since October with no issues.

Awesome! Thanks for the comparison. Every time I try to run by local big box stores the shelves are always desolate so I can't easily get hands on with older models.

I have seen some great x100s shots but can't afford that at this time. Wasn't really expecting to need to buy a new p&s but I guess that's life. I try to not rely on my iPhone 5 for all my pics while traveling.

i like the LX5 for the size
and i like the manual zooming in the Fuji X20
