Amazon US has the EOS M with the EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lens in stock again for the incredible price of $299 (click here), the kit with the EF-M 18-5mm IS STM retails for $349 (click here). Get it while you can! Meanwhile the EOS M kits are getting discounted also on Amazon Germany: The EOS M kit with EF-M 18-55mm IS STM and the SpeedLite 90EX is on sale for €395 (click here). Not the fire sale going on in the US, but a noteworthy deal in any case. Another Canon EOS M kit on sale at B&H: Canon EOS M with the EF-M 18-55mm IS STM lens and the SpeedLite 90EX external flash for $419 (click here). Black, white and red color options for the EOS M available.
I am trying to collect information about what is going on with the EOS M in the US. It is true that the US have never been a big market for Canon’s EOS M, but the fact that Canon will not sell and ship the new EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens in the US, and the EOS M fire sales that are going on since almost two weeks, make me think that Canon is at least trying to favour the Rebel SL1/EOS 100D (price & specs) over the EOS M.
If you live in the US and want the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM you can order it at DigitalRev (price depends by check-out location), they ship international. Canon EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM price check: Amazon USA, Amazon CA, B&H Photo, Adorama, Digitalrev, KEH Camera, eBay US, Canon USA, Canon CA, BestBuy.
