A canon EOS-M... with the 18-55 *and* the 22mm prime... if it was $299?

I'm mizzling. It seems like a good deal, but generally I don't like menu-diving and it looks like theres a lot of that with this camera...

Comments?

Supposedly a firmware update is coming to speed up autofocus. But when I looked at the the performance of that sensor -- it really isn't any better then our micro four thirds cameras. I saw one very cheap and considered -- but I'm really not getting anything but "another system" -- I don't see any real advantage over what I have.

You're right, guys. Thanks for bringing me back to common sense! I think I may even add an older compact to my sig. Now I have the batteries for it, its back in service and I find I still like it (see the callistemon pods posted elsewhere), even though its "only" 3.2Mp, on a 1/2.5" sensor. It records in TIFF as well as jpg and thats good enough for me for some things.

Keep the USD 300, save some more, shoot the heck out that excellent X100 and upgrade to the X101 in 2-3 years.

LOL! Nah, probably not. I think I'll get that VF-2 for my XZ. I also have a hankering for a PEN, and having the VF-2 already will be good. I suspect I am getting closer to selling my Pentax and old Minolta gear.

I love the look that you get from the Canon sensors, with the caveat that you need to nurse them with respect to dynamic range compared to an Olympus/Samsung/Sony etc. $300 sounds like a steal, but the product just seems underdone. I'm sure that I could buy it and enjoy it but I don't see it adding anything to what I have.
