1. Price Tag

The EOS-M was launched with an $800 price tag, which is ridiculous seeing as it shared almost identical features with cheaper rebel cameras. But with the camera being discontinued and Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals hitting, I got an EOS-M Body for $244 on Amazon which was a no brainer.

Once I was ready to buy a camera though, the Sony a99 came on the market, and it convinced me of its ability to do video.
