Cannon created the small body Canon EOS 100D/SL1 to prevent other Canon user from jumping to M4/3. The 100D/Sl1 still cannot beat the size and portability of the M4/3 specially the like of OM-D with comparable lenses. Just my take.

I am in complete agreement.  Nevertheless, I suspect that Canon will have a fair amount of success in achieving their goal.  Most people view the EOS-M as a big fail, including me.  Nevertheless, the EOS-M with 2 kit lenses is currently the second best selling mirrorless configuration in Japan and ranks 10th among all ILCs.  I can't think of any reason other than the Canon name why this camera is selling that well in Japan.
