Canon EOS M review by Joshua Waller at EPZ: "The Canon EOS M is capable of taking pleasing photos with an extremely compact body, although there are some issues worth noting."

Joshua takes kind of a pity of the EOS M, a camera that-in my personal opinion, can take excellent images (of not too fast moving, but preferably totally inanimate objects) but sucks at pretty much everything else. But no need to worry my dear Canonistas, before this year ends we'll be blessed with at least a new, more capable mirrorless body + a couple of matching from Canon. Plenty of high-res jpegs and raw files accompany this review:

"There are cheaper competitors available than the Canon EOS M, with quicker focus, a larger choice of lenses, as well as features including Wi-Fi. In addition, the other systems available either feature a built in pop-up flash or smaller external flashes.

The Canon EOS M has a small well designed body with an easy to use 3 inch touch screen, however the limited number of lenses, as well as the extremely slow focus and short battery life are rather frustrating limitations holding the camera system back. It would be nice to see some of these issues resolved

either with a firmware update or a following model and releases, however, until then, other mirrorless cameras offer a much better range of lenses, focus speeds, as well as generally better battery life. However, if you can bear with some of these weaknesses, then the camera has good noise performance, and is cable of taking excellent photos."
