David; you missed your chance in a big way. I would have started off by explaining that the small gyroscope in the base of the tripod head, controls the framus in the back leg which has a sensor... hehehe

Nice!

How's the focus speed with that combo?

Slow. Even with a fast lens, the EOS-M is a pretty slow to focus system compared to even an entry dSLR's AF system through the view finder. I found it had a hard time focusing on a few shots, where it should have been easy, but it kept having trouble figuring out what was in the white square box. It's generally accurate with the 22F2 pancake, but with big telephotos, it seems to have a harder time figuring things out. Also, very difficult to view the LCD when in bright sunlight. Also, super awkward to use it with a telephoto lens, just weird to hold and use, makes making it steady difficult. I'm sure someone else could do better there, I'm just not used to it. I mainly just keep using it in different configurations to try it out, stretch it's legs, step outside of my comfort zone.

While shooting with it, a guy with a 7D2 and 70-200 walked up to me and asked what I was shooting. Couldn't believe I was using a mirrorless, let alone a 200 + TC. Turns out he's a POTN member, so we got to know each other a bit, which was fun.

It's only good for stationary stuff. I'm sure you can do some action' with it with a lot of practice and good setting it up just right, but it's a chore.

I love the EOS-M, despite the difficulty with this particular use. Clearly not made for telephoto handheld (I've done it on a tripod and it was fine actually). Not made to quickly grab focus at all, even on fast lenses (my 85 and my 200 are fast, and it's still slow). It's a good camera for wider angles, travel, general walk around, in restaurants, etc. Stuff like that. But I still take it as a side kick even on swamp stomps, at least, until I pick up a 1D2 that I have planned. I'll still take it though. It's small and packs good quality, and serves as my "wide" setup when I'm traveling with big telephotos.

Same gator, backed up a bit:

And... EOS-M with 600mm Tamron:

The M works great for anything standing still. I use it at the zoo and animal park with a 600/4 and the shots are fantastic.

Sweet lord, you walk around with the 600/4 in a park? :-D

I'd want the M on there too, to save a few lbs!
