Great addition to a Canon SLR owners kit bag,
This review is from: Canon EOS M Compact System Camera - Black (18MP, Includes Speedlite 90EX and EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM) 3.0 inch Touchscreen (Electronics)
There are times when lugging around a 2.5KG DSLR is a real pain. The EOS M gives a good alternative with almost identical image quality and versatility in a small lightweight body. As most reviews will testify auto-focus speed is slow. On par with compact cameras and far from that you'd expect for a DSLR quality camera. This is my only gripe with the camera though and if I know I'm taking photos of fast moving objects I don't bother with the EOS M and resort to the DSLR instead.
For day-to-day use, portraits, landscapes, macro, etc it's ideal. The touch screen is clear and very sensitive and can be enabled / disabled (if you're carrying the camera around the neck it's sometimes advisable to disable the touch shutter or you end up with random shots)
Overall very impressed with the build quality of both the camera and 18-55mm Lens. I also purchased the EOS-M adapter ring so I can use all my EOS Lenses with the camera.
