I don't need an DPR review

I think I have this right: The M was introduced in July 2012 and previewed by DPR. Since that time, a quick count shows that DPR has reviewed over 100 new cameras. I wonder why they never considered the M good enough to devote resources to reviewing it. One year later it appears to be among the cameras attracting the most interest.

I had been waiting for a jacket pocketable APS-c camera similar in size to my Canonet QL1.7 and when the M came out I liked it and the idea of being able to use it with my EF lenses.

I checked out the RAWs on Imaging Resource when they had them up in their "First Shots" segment prior to the review there.

I was waiting to see what the 70D and 7DII look like but I couldn't afford both the M and one of those bodies when they came out. However, when the price dropped on the M I could afford that luxury.
