This is canon's first model. Unlike what you say it's already at least as good as the Sony's excepting the Nex-7

This is delusional in the extreme.

Let us compare the EOS-M with the NEX 5N (which is, lets remember, last years model):

The EOS-M has:

Same size lenses.
Thicker body.
Slower AF.
Sensor with slightly higher noise and slightly higher megapixels.
Much less native lens choice.
Same price for an adapter to use DSLR lenses.

Now of course native lens choice is a function of time on the market, so we cannot really penalise EOS-M for that, it will equalise with time.

But otherwise the only place the EOS-M beats an NEX 5N is in megapixels, and 200 extra pixels vertically / 300 extra pixels horizontally isn't going to make much difference.
