Opinion:Great machine, I have been using it for a couple of years and I feel very good, the pairing with the 22mm Canon is formidable, compact but powerful. I use it in weddings as a second body with adapter and 50mm to have a narrow and bright optics and it never gave me any problems. The batteries do not have an incredible durability but turning off wifi, touchscreen and continuous autofocus the life lasts. I highly recommend both for those who travel and for those who are at an intermediate level.
Opinion:My opinion more than a statement is a reflection, because I was not happy with the quality of the photos and I hope to be denied by those who have more experience than mine. I used the Nikon P7700 previously giving me always beautiful photos and I hoped moving to the M5 to take better photos but this was not the case, indeed I found little sharpness even at close range with the 18-150 and also wanting to be sympathetic with all the limits that can have a all-rounder zoom, I can not justify so much difference with a much older Colpix.
Opinion:PRO: - many physical controls (4 rings!) almost fully customizable - the same good 24mpx "second version" sensor of the various M50, 200D, 800D, 77D and 80D - fast and precise dual pixel AF - very fast burst (7 shots/second with afc) and "huge" buffer (17 raw) for non-specialist uses - very small weight and size, wanting more ergonomics resolves with a smallrig cage (it almost becomes a reflex, as a handle) - very comfortable touch screen in general, and well used as a joystick replacement to move the AF point even in viewfinder - perfectly compatible with efs/ef optics thanks to the adapter. CONS: - the ring around the shutter button for me is uncomfortable, nothing to do with that of the SLRs - AF not particularly lent in low light (comes "only" to -1EV): in such a condition the continuous af becomes unreliable, sometimes it goes hunting and even when it does not happen the machine could "refuse" to shoot for a couple of seconds after pressing the shutter button. It is as if he is still processing something despite the fact that there is confirmation of the focus on the screen. The strange thing (equal behavior in the M3) is that in a single the problem is very mitigated, the machine sets in focus and shoots in not excessive times (I repeat, only in very dark environments... I took pictures in church for a baptism, I was afraid of problems with the AFC and instead it never had any uncertainties) - there is no eye af (available on newer versions of the dual pixel) - poor battery life
Pros:AF speed, possibility to use the touchscreen to position the MAF point, sharp viewfinder, customizable ring nuts, possibility of speedbooster adapter for EF optics, compatibility with Canon Optical Park, practically pocketable with EF m 22mm
Cons:Does not hold up well the high ISO, lacks focus on eye, few lenses EF-M
Opinion:Light, ideal for travel (especially where it is not possible to carry bulky hand baggage). With the 22mm it finds its raison d'être. Nothing to envy to reflex APSC, but does not stand against the 6d. Compared to this produces larger files but noisier already from the 400 ISO. It is compatible with EF lenses. I'm also trying the ef m2 Viltrox to adjust the lenses I already had and reduce focal and increase brightness and it seems to behave very well with canon lenses, less with Tamron. But this is to be attributed to the adapter. Video compartment I don't know why I don't use it.
Cons:APSC-All too small in hand, but still good ergonomics
Opinion:Ideal Travel Machine. The image quality is great, the lenses are very fast. It has No compromises, it only makes extremely sharp photos. If you want a room to always have in your bag or backpack is this. Light practice and comfortable. The limits: Not at the top of the APSC, other brands certainly have done better in the numbers but in practice I would not be so sure. Are you a photography enthusiast? It's Not for you! Do you Want a machine that makes perfect shots without putting too much head? To buy right away, the used one has a ridiculous price for what it gives you! Will The EF-M system die in a few years? Whatever. If you want to invest and have used value is the wrong choice!
