News and reviews at EOS M Review
I'm so tempted by this at the moment...
Anyone waiting for this system?

Not really no, the rx100 bridges the gap for me between larger systems and small cameras for the time being.

At one time I thought I'd buy one with an EF-M adapter and a T/S 17mm to get back a setup like the Nikon F3 and PC-Nikkor 28/4. However, that combo alone would almost weigh as much as the rest of my µ4/3 gear and take up a lot of space in my bag, so maybe not. Now if I could get my hands on the B.I.G. 15/4.5 shift lens to try it out...

Heh. I never really needed a bridge between larger systems and small cameras before, since DSLR was theoretically some of the smaller systems I'd been using.
So if I were to turn to the mirrorless systems the Canon-M would be the only logical choice. That's why I'm so tempted at the moment. It's quite reasonably priced too.

I am waiting to see what Canon does with the M system next. I want to know that it is competing for "best in class" instead of possibly being an also-ran. I would also be looking for a more fully featured body than the one that has been released so far.

It's tempting to me because I can use my current EF lenses or when I want something more purseable, the lens that comes with it. However wanting and being able to get are two different things and a mix blessing. Not being able to rush out as soon as something is available has saved me a lot of grief as well as given me time to change my mind and look at other things. Took me months to decide which little dslr. If you get one you are obligated to review it!

I would try it if the AF was good, but early reports show it to be weak, so I'll pass for now. Also, no evf option and no tilty screen

The temptation of the EOS-M is too strong. I'd gotten myself a kit 3 today.
Absolutely love the metallic red finish of the body and the compact 22mm lens.
Some test shots:
Will give it a better run when I can find the time. Heh.

Cool, looking forward to hear more from you and your new kit.

The 90EX flash is small. Nothing to write home about other than being okay at doing it's job.
