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.

The reason they didn't review it is:

"we base our decisions partly on the feedback emails we get , partly on the popularity of each camera on the site, and partly by reading the forums."

Even with that said, the EOS-M, despite it's poor market performance, deserves a review based just upon the fact that it was Canon's first entry into the growing ILC market.

Good point. Canon is a main player, and this was their mirrorless entry. Selling well or selling poorly it is an important camera to review.

I hope DPR did not bend to pressure from Canon. I like to believe that they make their own decisions. I hope I am not naive.
