Wow, spent the last 2 days looking through about 160 pages of this thread and saw some great images.

I had the EOS M around the first time of the big price drop, which was around the time they put out the 2.0 firmware. It was great overall with the flaws that many have mentioned, such as the slower AF but the biggest issue I had with it and lead to me selling it was the blackout after each shutter release. Drove me crazy.

Since then I've been looking for a smaller body to go along with a full DSLR setup. Tried the RX100M3 and most recently tried the Panasonic LX100. Both great cameras with great features (RX100 with the flip screen, LX100 with the 4k and manual controls) and both have EVFs.

I agree that having a EVF of some sort on a M would be nice but it's not a necessity for me, the only time I would use it is shooting outdoor in sunlight. Reason being, small body = small EVF. If you're used to larger, bRight EVF/OVF, then the small one on these compacts are hard to use. The popup one on the RX100 is a novelty to me, since it's really small, the one on the LX100 is equally small. Also the Lx100 with the zoom lens is really nice, but not really ergonomically friendly to use, especially if you use the ring on the front to control zoom and not the rocker, it starts to get cramped and a little uncomfortable to hold. And I have small-medium sized hands, can't imagine what someone with larger hands would do.

So it brings me back to the M. Do I get another one and try and live with the blackout?

Nope, I decided to do one better and bought an M2 as part of the dual lens kit, with the 22, 18-55, EX90 flash, Canon EF mount adapter. Had some funds left over in my PayPal account that I had forgotten about so the end price for me wasn't that much more than what a Eos M 22mm Kit and a extra flash, 18-55, and adapter would've cost.

Plus I see that the AF is supposedly better on the original M even with the updated firmware due to larger area of phase detect points. Also they resolved the blackout issue so pictures are taken with a blackout, plus it looks like they added a C1 dial if I'm looking at it right. And finally the addition of wifi for transfer is a nice addition (though having remote shooting as well would've made it just right). I hope it all works out for me and I can use this cam to get video clips of my daughter/carry where I wouldn't carry my DSLR. I took her to the children's museum yesterday and carrying around a D810 + 50 f/1.8 wasn't the lightest load to carry around while chasing after a 19 month old. Had to be careful not to bump it against any other kids and give them a concussion, lol. I could see the 22 being permanently attached to the camera indoors and probably 70% of outdoor shooting as well. If it works well I'll get the other EOS-M lenses as well, the 11-22 first and knowing how OCD I am, I'll get the 55-200 to fill out the family. Can't wait, ordered it 2 days ago, should get it within a week or so.

Drives me crazy too. I hate it... but live with it.

Where did you get a M2?

I'm holding out for the next version (M3?) as I believe it will be Canon's best mirrors and will be up to par with all the competitors so far. Everyone have been killing them. The Sony and Fuji offerings are just so damned nice but I'm a brand loyalist for the most part.

Hrm,

I never noticed it blacking out the screen after a shutter release. When I do my brackets for my typical use, I watch it go through it's three frames without a black screen. Maybe I'm misunderstanding.

Very best,

This YouTube clip shows what I'm talking about.

It's not a huge deal but noticeable.

I ended up getting it on eBay. Not having a local warranty is a concern, but I've yet I have a camera fail on me (knock on wood). I ended up pricing it out

EOS-M 22mm kit -$250 on sale
18-55 - $100
Canon EF adapter - $60
EX90 flash - $50

About $460 or so. Full price I paid was $650 so a $200 premium in price but for better AF, wifi transfers, and the lack of blackout made it worth it for me.

Ahh, I understand. Thanks.

I guess I never noticed/cared, since even SLR's blackout for a moment per frame.

Very best,

It can be worth trying with a faster (write speed) SD card. I found that a C10 card (Sandisk Extreme) changed it from uncomfortable to unnoticable, with a black screen when flushing the buffer that's less than half the length shown in the vid there...

Gone in the time it takes to blink, rather than the time it takes to drum your fingers ;)

Hmm, I'll have to try a faster card.

This.

I usually run a Sandisk Extreme Pro 8GB in my camera, but also keep a microsd to sd adapter with a Sandisk Ultra Class 10 UHS-I in my wallet as a backup for those days when I realize that I forgot to transfer the photos from the last time (happens a lot, and I haven't gotten around to buying another "full size" card yet)

And even though I never get such a long blackout as in that video there is a bit of difference between the Extreme Pro and the microsd so I can imagine that (even) slower cards will be a painful experience.

Another bonus with the Extreme Pro is that it takes less time to recover from a burst of 4-5 shots than it does with the slower cards I've tried...

Disclaimer:The fact that I'm slightly color blind with a crappy monitor and have little or no clue about PP doesn't prevent me from enjoying holding a camera - it just makes it harder to make my photos look normal to you...

One thing that helped me out a lot, put it on continuos shooting mode and the blackout will significantly decrease. Just a tip!

Bought an EOS M a week or two ago, liking it a lot. These were taken with the 18-55 kit lens..

Mud season in the Rockies has really slowed me down lately with photos. Was lucky enough to enjoy some time with family and their new pup last weekend though.

As always, appreciate any feedback. This little photo session was 10000 times harder than I thought it would be! :)
