dpfan32: I have the original EOS M and I barely see an improvement here. This is not a sports camera so speed is not too relevant for me, I have a DSLR for this. The EOS M5 is far too expensive.
I think I'll stick with my EOS M or upgrade to a small Sony mirorrless for landscapes with a manual wide angle lens, but again it has to be at least a A7 FullFrame to see reasonable improvements. I already had the A5100 and A6000 which were at pixel lever a bit better but not enough to convice me to change the system and both
pencake lenses hat serious problems thats why I returned both. Canon STM lenses have lovely quality, don't have this extreme problems and are cheap.

I have the original M. I don't use it much because I find the controls very finicky but I have hung onto it. IMO the big improvements (M100 vs. M) are the better design of controls, improved sensor (lowest cost model with this sensor?), flip screen and potentially, a surface with a better grip (based on review pictures). Biggest downside? absence of bracketing. Lack of a hot shoe is not great but the M10 set that precedent. Based on the M100 manual, the menus are quite different to the REBEL like menus on the M but I think I could find what I need. A body only option at a competitive price would make it a great second camera, especially if you already have EF M lenses and adaptors. For long distance travel, I would probably pair it with my GR II (for wide angle - 28mm and 21MM) and bring the EFM 22mm and an EF 50MM (P.S. I really wish I could get a canon touch screen on the GRII).
