Which $300-$400 mirrorless camera?

I've read many of the forums here trying to figure out how to spend limited budget on a mirrorless. Now that the EOS M is $350 or less, is it the goto cam (vs the Nikon J2, Oly EPL3, and others)?

I have checked out the focus speed with the vers 2 firmware and find it not that bad with point focus and decent light. I am assuming that the IQ from the EOS M will be as good or better than competing cams. The Nikon J2 seems pretty close (from comparing photos online) though I'd like to see a head up comparison of the M, J2, and EPL3.

And are there other cameras that out be considered in this range? I need portability, image quality, ease of operation, reliability.

Thanks for any help--
