Aside from performance issues I'm not looking at the EOS M for two reasons:

  • I don't like touch screens (I've tried them and find that I touch them unintentionally far too often)
  • Eye-level viewfinders -- built in, not tacked on as with some of the Oly m4/3 bodies -- are my shooting preference. Even my old SD300 and SD700IS have OVFs (and the former is a tiny camera).

I have but no longer use (much) a Panasonic GH2 m4/3: Great EVF, or at least an adequate one. If I go back into the mirrorless world seriously again, it will be with a Sony NEX-7 (great EVF and fine IQ and colors).

In the meantime I'm happy with my G15 and my two Canon DSLRs (7D and 60Da).

The touch screen is very sensitive too me..I think it's adjustable but after putting a glass protector screen on top...well it's perfect now.

version 2 is rumored to have aVLF... I'll get that too once it comes out... But I find the EOSM in its current form pretty useful. Blows away my s90 and a lot smaller lighter then my 1dX.
