Just got mine off eBay for $249 shipped.

I'd go for that. Maybe I need to look harder.

The lowest I've seen is $385, white box, shipped from Taiwan I think. Most are over $400.

The lens may well be worth that much, but not to me...yet.

My quick check online after ordering the EOS-M didn't find any EF-M 11-22 lenses for under $400. That is much more than I want to spend on this camera right now. For $250, though, I would consider one (but probably not right now).

Any camera cases recommended for the M?
To use with 22mm lens and as waist belt case?

Scott M already recommended the case I'm using too.

That's who I bought the body w/22mm from (for $249), but I don't see the EF-M 11-22 lens for that.

Careful there. HERMELIN might come and tell you that that looks "stupid".

Which reminds me, the 90 EX flash is far from useless. It works beautifully as a master flash for my 430 EX2 when used off camera. A trigger won't add a tiny bit of fill light. 90 EX does :)

Ordering My EOS M now... you guys who have the adapter, do you even use it with your other lenses?

Also, I've been seeing many of you mention 'Magic Lantern' . What exactly does it do?

What prices are you seeing? They go for about $375 where I live (Indonesia).

I saw them running about 350-375GBP (British pounds) in camera stores over there. $249 for one is a steal.

That's what I was finding. $400-$500 over here. No doubt it's a great lens, but I can't see using it enough to justify that cost. That's just me, though. I use my M as a pocketable walkaround and I don't want to lose that portability.

Mine arrived today. I have just started playing with it, but so far I am impressed with the image quality. I used my Canon 7D presets in Lightroom 5 as a starting point for the RAW conversion. I assume the EOS M's sensor is the same one in the 7D - correct?

Also, the camera came with firmware 1.0.6 installed. The latest I could find online was 2.0.2, which I installed. Is that in fact the latest version?

My Speedlite 270EX seems like a good match size-wise for the M -- my 430EXII dwarfs the small camera. I only took a couple of flash shots with the 270EX so far - hopefully will have more time to play with it this weekend. Anyone have any tips for flash use?

I shoot a lot in AV mode with my 5D3 and 7D. However, the EOS M does not display the shutter speed in Live View when shooting in this mode, which makes things difficult. For my test shots I just used AUTO ISO mode when shooting in AV, and the camera appeared to try to keep the shutter speed around 1/40 -1/60.

Yes, it does. You can cycle through info displays with the Info button. You can cycle from no info on the display to full info with histogram.

Where do you live?! lol Looks great! Is that HDR? Or did you just edit a single raw? Any filters or just the 22mm pancake?

Mine does,

Just hit info a few times. Cycle the GUI and HUD. Mine shows shutter and histogram if I want, during live view, on AV.

Also the EOS-M's sensor is not the same as the 7D's, I don't think? It's similar, but the `M's is newer I think (slightly better ISO performance).

I usually never use AUTO ISO, as I prefer my set of images to have equal noise properties so I set ISO and meter the darkest point to ensure the shutter minimum speed I want.

Very best,
