CSC : Digital Compact System Cameras - This new category of digital Compact System Cameras with interchangeable lenses was mislabeled for a time as "Mirrorless Cameras" by those forgetting about "Mirrorless" Rangefinder cameras.  Such confusion is easily understandable, since interchangeable rangefinder cameras were only recently introduced in 1932.  hmm.    CSC or Compact System Camera is probably the best category description to date, although I am fond of the old RFF desigation of  CEVIL  indicating Compact Electronic Viewfidner Interchangeable Lens.   This forum is here at RFF because via adapters these cameras offer an inexpensive way to use rangefinder lenses on digital cameras -- in addition of just about every 35mm SLR lens you can think of.  All  offer the photo enthusiast an incredible array of adopted lenses which was not possible before these new digital formats.   This group continues to grow in popularity and new camera models!

glad for you though randy!

so what lenses do you have for your little m body now?
Joe
I started with 20/2.8, 35-135, 17-40/f4, and 70-200/f4 using the Eos-m adapter.
I picked up the kit 22/f2 off Craigslist on New years day and now the 50/1.8.
I did buy the Rayqual Fd to m adapter from Camera Quest to try with 55/1.2 , its in the bag but still unused.I also want to try my 500/8 reflex for full moon shots and my 24/2.8.
Now I have to find time to shoot

lots of toys to play with, nice!
i am drawn to the 11-22 zoom, they are available locally (if the website is right) but then i am not really into zooms so not too sure what that is all about. would be kinda cool to find a nice long tele to play with.

I was looking at the 10-22 ef-s.
My problem is I hardly ever sell anything.
I give some things to family if they take an interest in photography,but my closet and nightstand is full up with gear.

i hope that bird has his papers in order...
barely shot this weekend...went out twice for a walk and got pissed off at the cold and went home.
discovered though that i prefer the m without grip or thumb thing...except for hitting the damned arrow button on the back of the body when putting the camera in the bag...killed a battery overnight!

It must have been a fluke.
Before I left on vacation last year I bought an extra battery just in case not having much time using the M before leaving.I only had one occasion where the battery drained before the day was finished.I did have the setting at 30 sec lcd and 1 min main off, but that was annoying.

my finger seems to naturally fall on that arrow...
i bought one good battery and 2 cheaper ones for the m...so i have 3 new batteries...the oem canon battery is dead and the second no name battery seems ok but i wanted a known quantity so went with the 3 new ones.
my biggest frustration has been the cold as my bones are not handling it well this winter.

It's one of those places English Wikipedia says little about

I thought they were from north of the border .That short growing season makes great fruit without the unnecessary color.The wife said send us some samples to try.

Go for it! Just be prepared for a learning curve with the control method (eventually you'll love the touch screen ) Don't forget to read the manual and set the "trash can" button to brighten the screen when necessary - makes all the difference.
