EOS-M: worth getting it for the lens?

I have been shooting mirrorless for 4 years. m43 is very, very good, but I wonder about the long term viability of the platform -- mainly because of the strength of the brands and players. I think the format itself works very well.

Having said that, I am intrigued by the Canon 70D live view AF performance. I don't really have an interest in the current EOS-M body -- it reminds me of my old EP1, but with a slightly better sensor.

But the lenses look GREAT.

Do you think it's worth getting a fire-sale kit, and a 35mm eq. fast lens to play with, while waiting for the rumored EOS M ii (and hoping it has the 70D sensor)?
