The Pixel 2 pushes the envelope in terms of what can be accomplished with computational photography. Find out why it earns our highest ever score for a smartphone camera in our full review.
I have a 60D, and bought the M for exactly the same reasons as the OP. I love it as a second, take anywhere camera. The firmware update sorted any af issues, which I never really found that bad anyway.
If you already have a 60d and lenses, then it makes sense to buy the M and the lens adapter.-- hide signature --
Yep, I suck at typing...
Sorry, I see now that my post was ambiguous. I was responding to the previous post, not the OP, having presented my argument that the M's AF is just fine, especially if you modify your technique a bit for kids.
I have reservations about this. I am too used to seeing SLR it's difficult to deal with something that doesn't work at the same speed and that makes it hard to see anything at times, I.e. Excess daylight on screen . It's what drove me to NEX because it at least has a finder. You'll have many more times when your SLR shot would be and over while the M is still hunting. It strikes me as slower in many cases. Compared to the S 90 and S100 which I used as a backup (still occasionally) . The upside is the sensor is good. Fwiw, I've used mine with the 50-255 as a different kind of backup and the results are generally good. On that lens, it will chew through the battery faster, I just carry a spare. No flash? that doesn't bother me, but you might miss it on occasion.

With the 18-55 the M is faster than my S100 at focusing. The 22mm may be a trifle slower in poor light, but the exceptional quality of that lens makes up for it.

the most important question is autofocus speed. you think, it will be acceptable for me (in compered with EOS 60D) ?!!
Of course not. If you're at all concerned with focus speed, do NOT buy an EOS M. The EOS M is for people who don't care about focus speed.
This is absolute nonsense, as anyone who has actually used the M (with updated firmware) can tell you. The focus speed is not as fast as a DSLR, such as the 60D, when used with optical viewfinder, but considerably faster than live view AF on the 60D. The M's AF is also considerably faster than a compact point and shoot, such as the Canon S100. It is perfectly fast enough for anything except fast action. Anyone who thinks otherwise either hasn't used it, is an idiot, or both. The AF is also very accurate. More so than a DSLR.
I use my M as a second camera to my 7D. More accurately, the 7D is now the second camera to my M. This is because I have the M with me all the time. The 7D, even more so than the 60D, is too big to carry with me everywhere I go.-- hide signature --

Exactly. Focus on the EOS-M is fast.
The camera was much maligned without reason.

Quick. Unpredictable. Unwilling to sit still. Kids really are the ultimate test for a camera's autofocus system. We've compiled a short list of what we think are the best options for parents trying to keep up with young kids, and narrowed it down to one best all-rounder.
Landscape photography isn't as simple as just showing up in front of a beautiful view and taking a couple of pictures. Landscape shooters have a unique set of needs and requirements for their gear, and we've selected some of our favorites in this buying guide.
If you're a serious enthusiast or working pro, the very best digital cameras on the market will cost you at least $2000. That's a lot of money, but generally speaking these cameras offer the highest resolution, the best build quality and the most advanced video specs out there, as well as fast burst rates and top-notch autofocus.
Are you a speed freak? Hungry to photograph anything that goes zoom? Or perhaps you just want to get Sports Illustrated level shots of your child's soccer game. Keep reading to find out which cameras we think are best for sports and action shooting.
