    Hi all,
    I'm currently looking to change up my pentax Q set a bit as everyday journal tool and interested in the EOS M2 due to the size of the sensor is bigger. Anyone had any experience with M2 yet? I think the line has been discontinued so any suggestion regarding where to buy (refurb or used as well) is most welcomed. Thanks.

    canon's got a couple refurb M3s (sorry, no M2s) on their site, and canon's refurbs come with a full year warranty.

    i wasn't in love with the early M series as i found the grip very clunky, but that's just personal preference. i do think the larger sensor could be a big help, and there M series has more lenses to choose from than the q does, i believe. plus later if you choose, you can get an adapter so you could use the entire canon EF and EFS lenses.

    The Panasonic GM series killed the Pentax Q - same size body, larger sensor, a squillion lenses. The GM5 has an evf and a high resolution LCD. Pity that it has been sidelined as well.
