I'm thinking to get the canon EOS M for the larger sensor
larger than the Fuji X20

I love my M. I end up grabbing it most of the time now. There are also third party lenses being made in the M mount. Check out B&H for options. I primarily shoot with the 22 although I do have an adapter for my other canon glass. If I start needing something longer then I will buy telephoto M Mount lenses to save size. However, it is kind of cool to put my 50 or 85 on there :).

But this is where it is possibly becoming an issue in my opinion. My LX3 was a decent size for me to where it could come with me everywhere I went, just about every day.

The EOS-M got my attention with the fact I can use my lenses on it, but then also have to add any of the bulk associated with an adaptor ring. At what point am I really going to just be having an easier time carrying my DSLR's on me?

I've had a G10 as well, but it was a bit bulky and I wasn't getting shots I was very happy with. So the LX3 took main travel duty for me.

Now that I've gone and ruined a good thing(accidents happen and yay to getting new toys), I need to find a decent replacement.

For the Fuji stuff, it looks great and if I could afford the x100s that would probably be my first choice. I was coming here to easy any curiosity about the size of the EOS-M because I would be able to justify the size with the 22mm lens on it, but I'm not sure the adaptor ring and other bulky lenses would make it practical for a replacement. I can't find one locally to get a hold of to really ease my mind.

The Fuji x20 or x10 was also suggested to me by a friend, but I'm not sure about them yet. Don't know if they would beat out the LX7 value and IQ wise. I have to admit, it sucks not being able to use my B+W filters for the LX7, or share batteries. But, the LX7 does seem to have some redeeming features and I wouldn't mind giving the f/1.4 a try.

Now I've got to prowl the EOS-M pics and see if they can sell me for a second buy down the road for something just slightly smaller than my other bodies. I think I'll either talk myself into it for the lens compatibility, or aim for the x100s when I can.
