Will I really get significantly better shots with the M5? I doubt it.

Vs the SL1 sure you would. DPAF is no joke... after 70D/80D/7D2 and now 5D4 it's amazing how strong of a performer the DPAF is. You point... it's locked on no mistake. I'm actually amazed and although 979 is alot of money and I literally just bought the M3 for my wife not even two months ago I'm fixing to pre-order the M5 just to have the DPAF.

SL1 has one decent center point... M5 will have rock solid AF all the way out to the edges/corners.

The one thing I'm waiting to see if they do the minimum shutter of the EOS series for my wife this would be a killer option.

She has the 80D now and it is a better camera BUT... she doesn't want the size anymore and loves the size of the M3. I haven't pre-ordered yet because she hasn't complained about the M3 yet and so far has been happy with the focusing.

If I remember right, it's shutter range was 1/4000th to 30 seconds but I may be wrong.

What exactly is up with the 30 second shutter speed anymore... You'd think it would be simple to let you program any time you want now.. in the old days i get it, its all mechanical or things were simple. Now not so much...

I was thinking about replacing my 60d with either the M5 or 80d. After a few days I decided to rule out the M5 because by the time I put the lens adapter on it won't be much smaller than what I have. Now I'm trying to decide between the 80d or keeping the 60d and adding a 100-400 mk1 to my lenses.

Even without the EF/EF-S adaptor, the M5 is still heavier than the SL1.

I think waiting to see reviews on the AF speed of the M5 would be a good idea. With your lens collection, I'm guessing you shoot sports/wildlife so AF should probably be your deciding factor.

The SL1 is completely plastic... so that's really no surprise.

This looks like an awesome camera. Just think how much hype it would be getting if it was a full frame camera with a couple of standard zoom options...

Not to mention the IQ and AF on the M5 would be much better. The EVF probably adds some weight as well.

I thought I was done with crop bodies but after using the M3 that changed my mind. I really love shooting with the M3 and considering how much better the M5 appears to be, it will definitely worth every cent imo.

But it's not, and there really aren't many lens options available...I still think lens selection is the m's biggest issue

Maybe but not me. I like mirrorless for the less bulk of the lenses. While the SL1 maybe small it still has to use EF/Ef-S lenses, no upside to it at all IMO. Besides it is still considerably thicker.


Does the EOS M have 24mm f/2.8 pancake, 40mm pancake, 50mm f/1.8 STM for example?
All of which are as small as what we tend to see on mirrorless.

Even better, EF 22mm f2stm. Of course you can adapt and still have the same depth...

not really...with the adapter, the m5 is thicker than the SL1 with any of those lenses...that's his point...aside from the 22mm, you can't get anything faster than f3.5 with AF at any focal length in a small native EF-m mount...

Unless the back is drastically different, the adapter just makes the flange distance the same, how can it get thicker?

anyhow, I posted it a bit back in this thread, not following the f3.5 thought, the M22 already exists, it's F2, it's tiny. Clearly smaller than the SL1, and a stop faster.

you can see here the m5 with adapter and with the 40mm attached compared to the sl1 with just the 40mm
http://camerasize.com …t/#684.345.2,44​8.345,ha,t (external link)

it's thicker...as i said, aside from the 22f2, there's no other lenses that are faster than f3.5 and have AF...with an SL1, you can add a 40mm f2.8, or a 50mm f1.8...and still be relatively small...that was his point...there are no options for that with the m5
