    Am reluctantly selling my Canon EOS M and a 22mm f/2 STM lens. The lens for those who don’t know, is a diminutive ‘pancake’-style lens with superb optical quality; reviewers have raved about it and justifiably so, including Roger Cicala of lensrentals.com who called it ‘really excellent’. The overall package of camera body + lens makes for a diminutive almost-pocketable package (depending on the size of your pockets, of course). The fast f/2 aperture makes it a fine lens for interior/available light photography and shooting wide open, it has surprisingly good bokeh for its wide-angle (the equivalent of a classic 35mm) field of view/FOV.

    EOSM1.

    Am also including a few extras in the deal -

    * The soft red shutter release button -
    * A very cool FlipBac grip (which you can see in the accompanying photos) that makes the camera much easier to hold/grip in multiple positions.
    * In addition to the original Canon battery, am adding not one but 2 extra third party batteries (made by Opteka) - so you’ll never run out of juice on long shooting sessions or hikes.
    * And finally a small carrying case/belt pouch made by Cliq Elite - the perfect size for an EOS M, and easy to wear either on a belt or to attach to the strap of another shoulder bag.

    EOSM3.

    The combination of the APS-C Canon sensor - and a superb and tiny lens - make this a carry-anywhere camera capable of seriously wonderful photographic results. This camera features updated firmware that mostly solves the slow AF/focus issues which plagued the initial release of the EOS M. It also can use Canon’s ingenious ‘back button focus’ - a way to assign autofocus functions to a different function button on the camera - which allows photographers to set a prefocus with one button and not have the act of pressing the shutter do a last-moment refocus.

    EOSM8.

    A final plus is the manual focus ring/manual focus ability of this lens - which allows setting very precise close-up focusing under different circumstances. Maybe not a must have for every photographer, but it’s one of the essential features of this lens/camera in my opinion.

    EOSM5.

    I’m the 2nd owner; camera and lens have been used gently, never abused. The original box, software CD’s and user’s manual will accompany it. Canon’s other lenses for the EOS M platform include the superb ultra-wide-to-wide-angle 11-22mm zoom. But even if you never got any other lenses for it, this combination - of an ultra-small and solid body, with an incredibly high quality tiny wide-angle lens - make this into a great photographic tool. It hasn’t garnered the cult following of Ricoh’s GR series, or the praise of the Coolpix A or the fabulous RX1, but with its combination of tiny size and superb optical IQ, the EOS M is one of the niftier and more underrated cameras around.

    EOSM9.

    And for those wondering: the touchscreen is surprisingly well designed and easy to use and, once one gets used to it, almost addictively fun.

    EOSM6.

    ASKING PRICE: $275

    SHIPPING: an additional $15 in the U.S., everywhere else negotiable.
