The EOS M with 22 pancake is a fantastic camera if you can accept it shortcomings. For shooting things that do not move its great, I've seen many terrific landscape and architecture shots with it. What it does not do well is shoot moving objects. The slow AF combined with the blackout time makes it shooting anything that moves a guessing game. And while yes you can fit any EF lens on it, most of the time it makes it ridiculous and way too unbalanced. I don't think you'll find a single EOS M user say with a straight face that the M can shoot moving subjects effectively. There's a reason why its so loved now, because of the fire sale. If they had just improved AF and kept it at $699-899 it wouldn't sell.

Its not ridiculous at all to fit the 35mm F2 or the 50mm F1.4 on it, it works very well and I never said the EOS-M was good for action, though it can be done, just like any other camera.

It remains to be seen if Canon will even fully support the M in the US. It says something by them not releasing the 11-22 here. A system is not a complete system if there's only 2 lenses that are natively available for it.

It says that most Americans are not really bothered by CSC's and prefer DSLR's, which is well known. However, the US isn't the world and there are for more lucrative markets for CSC's elsewhere, like Europe and Asia, where the EOS-M has sold in much larger quantities. Canon will obviously sell products where people will buy them and not waste time elsewhere, and up to now, it's hard to argue against their sales strategy.
