I saw on Amazon, the EOS-M with 22mm f/2 pancake lens was up for grabs, brand new for $299. It was too good a deal to for me to resist. Last summer when it came out at over twice the price, I passed it up. But for $299, I can justify that for a casual, take-everywhere rig. For $299 it really won't matter if the AF or the interface isn't state of the art. I'll have fun testing the 22/2 against my SEL24 (seeing just how good this inexpensive fast wide pancake really is). And if I get some "keeper" shots on occasions where I wouldn't have otherwise felt like bringing my "good" camera (of which there are actually quite a few) it will all be worth it. With the EVF and easily accessible manual focus amenities, I don't expect my NEX-7 is in any serious danger just yet. I'll report further when the package arrives and I have a chance to put it through its paces.
