I just wish Canon will strike back with a vengeance, releasing M bodies with blindingly fast AF, faster than any mirrorless out there, and other goodies. I also hope they release a slew of excellent EF-M primes and zooms with prices in line with the current EF-M lenses.

In other words, I want to see those arrogant M43 and NEX users drop their jaws.

In other words, you want Canon to earn people's respect, and deliver a product that is worthy of respect-- at least in the mirrorless segment.  That sounds very reasonable and fair.  And it also might be fair to say that the EOS M wasn't quite worthy of respect.  But it was a first attempt.  You can't expect to hit a home run first time at bat.  Sometimes, you just barely make contact with the ball.  In the case of this first EOS M, they made contact with the ball, but they didn't hit it very far.
