That is only if you are using the same 24-105 lens for dslr and mirrorless. If you look at my comparison, I use the EF-M 18-150 versus the EF-S 18-135. The real advantage of the M5 is the versatility. If you use the EF-M 18-150 or the EF-M 22, you will have a much more portable "camera package" while at the same time providing you the option of using your L lenses. In fact, if you look at my post in another thread, I took a pic of my son with the 50 1.2L and the 22.

Yep, I am all on board with you. If - big if - you use the native lenses for the Canon mirrorless.

I think it's more likely that we SL-1 owners who are possibly considering the M5 might own the 18-135 (either the STM or the newer USM) so here's that comparison:

Agreed that there isn't much difference if you use the same lens with the SL1, though there is a good difference if you were to get the EF-M 18-150. Today, I did a little not so scientific "testing" in my back yard with my son.

First up, the camera size comparison (5DS-R w/ 85 1.2 vs. M5 /adapter and 50 1.2):

Now the pics. Both were shot at F1.2 in AV mode, ISO set to 100. Images are SOOC with only mod being conversion to jpg in Lightroom.

I tried to keep both shots as "similar" as possible without using a tripod.

Keep in mind the usability of the M5 vs a Rebel... three dedicated dials instead of just one, and the build quality is much nicer (assuming the Rebels haven't changed much... I haven't seen one since the XT :-D).

I've never worn a Rebel out, so build quality is irrelevant for me.

I seen the M5 in store and for some reason, it seemed a lot bigger in my head. It's hardly larger than the M3 which is quite impressive.

I'm strongly considering buying one, just need to find the money for it  :p

The photos I take with my Canon EOS M5 all have the correct capture time but the videos all have the wrong capture time. I use lightroom and if I take a video at 1:00 the capture time of the video will show as 8:00 in lightroom. Is anyone else having this problem?

Bump for an underrated mirrorless camera.... I bought mine to use on my mountain biking trips, and so far I'm impressed. I took it out this afternoon in the snow to take pictures of my 2-yr old lab, in order to test the AF system, and I came away impressed. I've been using the 80D and the 18-135mm STM lens, so my new M5 and 18-150mm combo is significantly smaller and seems to put out very similar results.

Not an action shot, but here's one I took right before she was getting ready to take off. When I zoom in 100% in Lightroom, her eyes and the snow are sharp as tacks.

Bump for a couple more shots.... I've been taking the M5 on a handful of mountain bike trips, and it's quite excellent (first with the 18-150 STM, second with the 11-22):

Couple more recent shots from the M5, both taken with the 18-150mm lens. Keep in mind both of these riders were going quite fast when I took their picture.
