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: 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!
Summary: Wow! What a deal! I bought this with a healthy amount of skepticism, but thought I should try it since it was such a good deal. I am a professional videographer who shoots primarily with DSLRs, and I wasn't expecting this to blow my mind with amazingness. However, I was pleasantly surprised with it.

Summary: Sometime I love it, sometimes I wonder if I should have waited. PRO: the photos come out beautiful. quiet shutter, perfect for shooting stealth to not disturb the subject or scene. light and small. sync well with flash.(but only with Canon lens.
Excerpt: I have had this for a few months and have found it great, i got it for a bargin price new. I have two Canon DSLRs (20D,30D) already and went for this as a more portable and as a 3rd backup/light carry for my DSLRs. I feel it has great image quality and great features in a smaller package.
Great camera (coming from DSLR) if you know the limitations

Summary: I've been using DSLR's for almost 8 years now and have avoided the EOS M for the longest time -- I prefer the large size of a heavy DSLR with battery grip, so the benefits of a "small camera" never did much for me.. especially if making compromises.
Summary: Why 4 stars and not 5? Well, let me tell you: lack of USB functionality for communicating with either the EOS utility or any other USB device, such as "DSLR controller" on Android devices, etc.
