I took my new M5 and 18-150 out for a cold mountain bike ride a week or so ago. I'm very pleased with the portability of this system compared to my 7D2 and 5D3 setups. It's great for adding to the pack to take home some good quality photos. Here's a short recap of the ride:

It was a cool day: 25 deg F air temperature, hours after several inches of new snow had fallen. The previous week was warm, so the snow melted off the dirt road, turning it into a mud pit. Undeterred, I pressed on, with my intended photo location about 6 miles up the canyon.

Early on, the mud started building up on me and the bike. As it was exposed to cold, moving air it froze.

A bridge over the river provided a nice vantage point midway up the canyon.

Near my intended photo spot, I parked my bike again. I had held a slow pace and took a careful line to this point...the mud buildup was not bad yet...

Here is my favorite shot from near my turnaround point:

After shooting for a bit, I was getting cold, and decided to hustle down the canyon. This led to a significant mud and ice buildup on me and the bike. I really liked this picture of a 12" icicle which formed from muddy water splashes on my fork.

No issues with the M5 and the cold. I'll be bringing the M5 on many more of my rides. It is a great portable camera for active adventures!

Boy that looks cold - you must be hardy cycling in those conditions! Good work out for the M5 too.

Has anybody got any pics of the M5 sitting next to the original M v1 (from several angles too if poss)? I am still tempted by an M5, but the extra bulk of the hand-grip and top-bump for the EVF make it look similar in size to a small DSL such as the SL1 (100D) in the pictures I have seen. Nowehere near me has an M5 in-store that I can go and compare myself.

Go here for a comparison: http://camerasize.com/​compare/#351,684 (external link)

If you need more images, I can take some once my M gets back from IR conversion. It should arrive today.

I will say that the 5 is obviously bigger as those comparisons show, but it's still by no means large.

That's why I went mirrorless....portabil​ity with activity in the mountains.

Where in CO? I lived in Silverthorne for 9 years.

Brilliant, thank-you. That shows me what I want . Clearly my powers of Google Foo are failing me of late as I have never come across that website.

I'm in the southwest Denver suburbs, right up against the foothills. My post above was in Waterton Canyon.

Silverthorne/Frisco/Br​eck is a nice area!

Been meaning to grab a shot of this old junker for the abandoned vehicle thread. Nice dreary wet day in the PNW this morning on my way home from work that seemed to set the appropriate mood.

This camera with the canon 85mm f/1.8 is a treat!!!!! My only complains are the Diopter location and fine tuning it, and the 1/4000th shutter, wish i can go up to 8000th.... but hey, overall amazing camera i love it. Oh and weather sealing... wish it was weather sealed.
