Canon aims to keep the M-line in the level of consumer grade. To them, all the lenses you need are already given to you.

If you want fast, pony up for an adapter and use the crop/ff lenses.

Are there any noticeable difference between using M lenses or EF lenses with an adapter in terms of image quality or AF performance?

Not in my experience. I've used the 35 F2 IS, 85 F1.8, 100 F2.8L IS macro, and 70-200 F2.8L II IS, as well as the EF-M 11-22, 22, and 18-55 on my M. The 11-22 and 22 compare very favorably with the better EF lenses.
