You may be right about the EOS-M despite the dreadful reports about it, and of course there is no review of it on this site because they dare not upset Canon by telling the truth. Even with the 20mm lens the EOS-M is not particularly pocket-able in the way that the Ricoh GR and the Coolpix "A" are pocket-able. But I do not have a price point, I will pay what is necessary. I am not limited by a budget. I just don't like being ripped off, and that is what I believe the manufacturers are doing with the so-called "enthusiast" APS-C cameras. Yes, I do know all about how sales volume and price are related, but I do believe that that the prices are unreasonable. Would my version of a cheap APS-C camera sell to a niche market? Niche markets can be created by high prices; my camera would not be a niche camera, just good value. And sorry if you didn't get the joke, of course no company would sell without a warranty nor would they pack their product in a padded bag. I was trying to make a point about unnecessary expenses.
