    I used the EOS M1 when it was first released. Lack of a viewfinder and the shutterlag killed the experience for me. Move to Olympus bodies and haven't looked back. BTW, I moved to the EOM M1 from the EOS 20D. :-)

    I looked at the Canon M series before purchasing a Sony A7R III. Definitely glad about my choice, given that the battery is almost 3 times better (650shot rating), 4k can be shot without cropping, and it shoots 4k @ 30p & 24p (Canon only 24p), and 1080p @ 120fps (Canon only 720p @ 120fps). Add to it the 14.8 stop DR and exceptional low-light performance, and Canon is clearly behind the tech curve. Plus I like having the FF sensor, with the ability to shoot in crop mode when desired.

    You're comparing a $600 body to a $3,000 body, I should hope it's a little better.

    Well, that's certainly a valid point. I guess I was generally speaking more toward Canon's being a bit behind in the mirrorless game overall, and my criticism comes from unprocessed bummed-ness that I had to leave Canon for the Sony...even though I love the Sony. Sentimental things and whatnot.

    Yes, I agree completely. I have a rather large collection of Canon gear that I use in my business including tons of great lenses. However, I recently decided to put together a mirrorless kit for backpacking and other lightweight travel and went with Sony. Actually, I went with the A6500 so that I can use crop lenses and keep things really small. I have four lenses that are Sony specific now (Sony, Zeiss, and Rokinon). Those and the body fit into one small sling-bag that's so small it wouldn't even hold one Canon DSLR and mid-range zoom. Amazing. I will be putting it through its paces in an upcoming trip to Japan and looking forward to that.

    But yes, Canon has really dropped the ball on mirrorless. Rumor has it that they're soon to announce a full-frame mirrorless. Hopefully they'll pull a rabbit out of the hat and produce something competitive. If not, I may eventually phase over to Sony completely.

    I gather that image is from a Canon M5.

    Are you planning on getting an M50? Waiting to see what's next in Canon mirrorless? Pretty happy and staying with what you have?

    the Canon M50 is similar to the older M5 with a few more features like 4K video. I'll stick with the older model until at some point Canon has a full frame mirrorless

    I think that I would greatly appreciate the viewfinder of the M5, over the 4k video on the M50.
