Has anyone mounted an L prime (e.g. 50L or 85L) on this thing yet? Care to post pictures? Or any other L glass for that matter. Just curious to see how it looks with glass larger than the body, haha.

yea...

Not for me. The only reason I want this, is it's small, and works with my lenses.

Even if they made a mirrorsless model, it could not get much smaller. All you would lose is the bump on the top for the OVF.

I've been looking for a thread on the key SL1 vs M questions and they have all seemed to derail - except this one.

The ideal would be an iPhone size box without a mirror and with an optical viewfinder, that offers a few remarkable lenses (zoom + prime) and works with a EF lenses. But these are mutually exclusive. Everything else is a compromise that someone won't be happy with. What remains are two imperfect choices.

The major feature that keeps the SL1 thicker (front to back) is the mirror. But without it, any viewfinder is going to suck. Having a WYSIWYG OVF means having a mirror. Is having a good VF worth that thickness?

The major feature that makes the M thinner and native lenses smaller is not having an optical viewfinder - this is how you get the sensor so close to the lens. Is not having a good VF worth that thinness? Keeping in mind, you loose much of that thinness with the EF adapter attached and still don't get a VF.

Put another way, if the theoretical SL2 and M2 both had a dual pixel (D70 type) sensor and the same price, and you want small - which do you go for?

You may be over-thinking this. Within your parameters, the choice is easy: Choose whichever form factor you feel most comfortable using.

As I and others have said before, there is no "wrong" choice. If you want a true small "pocketable" APS-C camera and the rear display works for you, go for the M. On the other hand, if you prefer the layout of a dSLR and an optical viewfinder, get the SL1. The trick is making an honest assessment of what features and specifications are most important to you before you make a purchase.

In your premise above, cost was not factored in because you assumed the M and SL1 cost the same. In reality, they probably won't cost the same so cost will be one factor among many to consider when making a choice. How important cost will be in the spectrum of factors to consider is up to the individual. For me, cost is less of a factor than, say, ergonomics or image quality. I would rather spend a bit more and get improved IQ or ergonomics than spend less and have inferior IQ or ergonomics. Of course, others may feel differently, and that's perfectly fine. Canon offers two choices here that are both good. Which one you choose is totally up to you.

Ordered the refurbished through Canon Loyalty program.
$349.99 (offer end today) - $30.00 (traded in old Rebel XT) = $319.99.

That's why I have one - the M/22 combo is nice and small, if you can live without the OVF (which I really want) and only using the EF-M 22. Even with the 18-55 it's suddenly not drastically thin, and if you're going to get the EF-EFM adapter... it's thick enough I'd rather have the SL1 and have quick AF. So, I do.

I love a like, but feedback (including CC) is even better!

I've been thinking about picking one of these up as a travel body. How would the high ISO compare to my 70D? Last week I was in Vegas and it would of been nice to of had a lighter body with my Canon 10-22 on it while walking up and down the strip.

I think the difference is negligible if any. Below are a couple files. One is taken with the 70D and the other the SL1 both using the 40 STM lens (since you have that one). 1/125, f/5.6, ISO 6400.

Thanks for the side by side pics, they looks about the same to me.

I just picked this up as my walk around with my 150-500 and 40mm. I am saving my shutter on my 60d's.
