Dear friends and fellow gear geeks, I apologize for the sales pitch here, but B&H just sent me an email showing that they’ve knocked the EOS M with 22mm f/2 lens kit down to $299 until July 9th. While I was no where near impressed when this camera came out at $799 or whatever it was, I’d be lying if I said I’m not very curious now at this price point, especially after the new firmware has literally erased the biggest complaint about the camera, in the slow AF.
I have heard very good things about the 22mm lens, and feel that it can be a perfect companion camera either kept in the glove box or stashed away in a bag in and of itself, regardless if I choose to invest in the system any further. For $299, I’m looking at this as my (very) poor man’s Sony RX1 🙂
So, I had to buy one. I have a backpacking trip coming up where I will pit this against the OMD EM5 and the GX1 (assuming I can cram it all in the pack) and report back in due time.
This rebate at B&H lasts until July 9th, so if you’re interested, you can see them here:
To all my fellow ‘Mericans, have a safe and happy 4th of July tomorrow and thanks to everyone for the continued support.
All the best and happy shooting,
