Summary: I must clarify I have only given 9pts in overall/construction because I think they could have included wi-fi (which they did on the M2) but honestly it is one of the best cameras I had. For $369 I got the camera with a EFM 18-55 STM IS (a good) lens and the flash (nothing too special).
Pros: Excellent quality pictures in a 1/4 size of a normal SLR, compatible with EF lenses (w/adapter)
Cons: For me just not having a electonic viewfinder (complimentary) and the neck strip that drives me crazy. The lack of dedicated EF-M lenses (primes and big tele) for those who donÂ´t want to use the adapter could also be one
Summary: I'm giving this camera a 5 based on Price/Features. I knew what I was getting before I bought the camera. So Far I really enjoy it. I've used EF, Pentax, and EFm Lenses. They all capture nicely with this body. My only regret was buying the camera separately from the lens.
Summary: I owned a Canon 60 D, and loved it. However it was very heavy for me to carry around anymore. So I sold it and purchased this. I was very hesitant because I heard good and bad reviews on it. I am so glad I took the chance on the EOS-M. Great camera, and easy to use.
Summary: Pretty great camera. Great photos, great hd video. Video sounds great even without an external mic, but I love the fact that it has a mic jack. The basic lenses aren't as expensive as most dslr cameras.
Excerpt: Nothing really stands out as beeing good about this camera other than its compact size. The AF is very slow, the physical controls are missing crucial things like a mode dial and it has no built-in flash. What makes this camera interesting is the EF-M lenses.
Excerpt: I love it for it is, a small camera that is capable of the same image quality as I got from my 18MP DSLR. Yes, there are the well-known short comings, but for the most part I could work around it. Overall I was so happy with the M-system that I even decided to sell my DSLR!
