Tamron makes 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III VC for Canon EOS M

I have just gone back to eos-m as my compact camera of choice. I bought an RX100 because the glacial focusing of the eos-m (and inability to focus is low light) was killing me. The RX100 is so close to being perfect but Sony, as usual, destroy their amazing hardware with stupid software. The two that I couldn’t tolerate are the lack of interval timer mode (with no option for remote control, although I believe that the RX100 II does this with a smartphone app) and the pathetic max 0.7eV, 3 shot bracket. I just don’t understand the second one; Sony had already gone to the trouble of making a bracket function but then they decided to arbitrarily limit it to 0.7eV.

The EOS-m can bracket much wider using the default firmware, but “tragic lantern” opens up a world of possibilities when it comes to timelapse etc.

I am pretty sure that canon are going to release a new version later in the year. I’ll probably wait for the inevitable fire-sale and pick up a great camera for half off.
