Hubertus Bigend: Speaking of 'last', an interesting question now is whether the EOS-M50 will be the last EOS-M, after it is obvious that the new RF-mount is completely – in both directions – incompatible with the EF-M mount.

"But why buy and EOS-M if it provides no upgrade path?"
The no upgrade path is a 'natural' barrier for s**t photographers to not spend a lot more money for an FF camera thinking it will help them take better photos. In fact most people on this forum should invest in EOS M right now, it will save them money in the long run ;)

Living in Japan, I checked prices here and compared them to the D3400. The D3400 is way cheaper now brand new. Maybe getting rid of old stock, I don't know, but this is the best time to pick one up.
D3400 body only 40,000 yen and D3500 is 53,000
D3400 with 18-55 43,000 yen and D3500 is 63,000
D3400 with 18-55 and 70-300 is only 46,000 yen and D3500 is 89,000

For some reason kit lenses are way way cheaper with the old body, even though I believe they're the same lenses. Not sure if this is the same in other countries, but you might want to check.

Luke Forrest: Can shoot up to 30 minute long exposures now! The 2 minute limit in most Panasonic cameras has always been a great limitation in my opinion. May buy this camera. Love most things about it. However, will probably wait a little while for the price to fall. Not sure why this is model is valued at a $100 more than the original.

Kandid: But but but - why would anyone buy this when they can buy an M50 (I am wearing a Kevlar body suit and a hard hat...)(or similar) for 65% of the price with a bigger better sensor and interchangeable lenses....? Running away now and no disrespect to the good people of Panasonic

But but but - why would I buy an M50 over this. It comes with a two stop slower lens which I can't replace with a faster one because it doesn't exist..

I jest, honestly they're very different cameras. If you don't see the appeal of this camera then that's fine, it's not for you.
