Canon EOS M Shipping News And Video Review
The good news is that the Canon EOS M should start shipping by tomorrow, October 31st. I am still eagerly awaiting mine to arrive.
The other news is that DigitalRev notified me that they have the Canon EOS M in stock and ready to ship. Various kits are offered, click here to see all their EOS M related bundles and items. As usual with DigitalRev the price depends by your check-out location, but: they told me the EOS M kits are now slightly lower in price. Check it out to see if it works for you. Customers based in Asia should be fine with DigitalRevs location-based check-out system. One thing is sure: for the time being DigitalRev has the richest set of EOS M kits and bundles, and they are all ready to ship today.
I am checking the other sellers, but for the time being neither Amazon nor Adorama and B&H have the EOS M listed as in stock. More tomorrow, or as soon as there are news.
In the meantime have a look at the video above (DigitalRev’s Kai reviewing the EOS M) and on Techcrunch’s hands-on. Techcrunch writes:

There are slowly starting to be “EOS M”-tagged pics on Flickr, click here to see the pics. Finally, in the case you missed it, here is an interview with Canon’s David Parry about the EOS M:
