Just picked up a M3 for the wife. Dramatic improvement over the original. M4 should just add DPAF and you'll be all set.

Canon needs to get off their but and slam out some decent primes.

yep. and that ef-m 15-45 should have been at least a fixed (not variable) aperture - min. of f/4, but f/2.8 would've been competitive.

the lack of glass for the M3 is a problem.

I like my M3 - but I use a Fuji. Canon cannot match a Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 T* Planar
on an X-T1 (soon an X-T2). Canon's M system is crippled by the lack of native (properly sized) lenses. If I want to lug the L's, I wouldn't use a mirror-less body.

Has anyone lost their hot shoe cover and been able to find a replacement?

I don't remember mine even coming with one but you can get them dirt cheap off eBay and sites like that.

I've read that many do not fit due to the extra contacts on the m3 for the EVF. Some have used a nikon bs-1, but I just wanted to try and find a Canon one first. Plus, mine is (or rather was) white.

The M3 does not come with a hot shoe cover. The optical view finder comes with a hot shoe cover. Its a two piece deal one is for the hot shoe on the camera and the other part covers the contacts on the optical view finder.

Yup, it does. You can put the hot shoe cover inside the EVF shoe cover when you use the EVF for safer keeping.

I stand corrected the covers come separately one with the camera one with the finder and I do stow one inside the other as you mentioned.

How do you folks like the viewfinder? Indoors I am perfectly happy using the screen, but outside sometimes I can see the EVF might be nice.

It works well and I really like having it available for those situations where the screen is hard to use. It functions with the proximity sensor, so it turns on and off as you put your face up to it. I just wish it weren't so $$$!

I agree, the evf is great outdoors in bright light. It's also a must for me when using tele lenses, I find the camera is a lot steadier when pressed against your face. Worth the money until Canon smartens up and offers an M with a built in evf

I agree with everyone here, the EVF really comes in to its own in really bright sunlight. I'm glad I had it when I was in the Mediterranean a few weeks ago. Although the screen isn't impossible in very bright conditions, the EVF makes life much easier. I bought M3 as a kit with the EVF adding just £60 to the price so a bit of a no brainier. I have seen EVF's on eBay that have come from broken down kits for good prices so keep an eye out.

Yes, huge difference in sunlight. And as Iggy12 pointed out: It is much easier to hold a camera steady when it is up against your face, especially with a heavy lens on it.

It never looks the same on the wall as it does in the paint can
