Canon EOS M5

3.5
Verdict: Canon's foray into the mirrorless world was fraught with missteps, with its first few efforts lagging well behind the competition in focus speed. The EOS M5 ($979, body only) represents a big change-its autofocus system is speedy, and it can fire off images at a quick 8.2fps burst rate.
Pros: 24MP resolution. Quick autofocus. 8.2fps continuous shooting. TIlting touch-screen LCD. Sharp EVF. Built-in flash. Canon accessory compatibility. Wi-Fi
Cons: Video limited to 1080p. Omits weather sealing. Focus can struggle in dim light

Review: Canon EOS M5

3.5
Verdict: The mirrorless camera market was long notable for what it lacked: hardware from Nikon and Canon. Technically Canon has had a mirrorless offering for about four years, the EOS M, but it was a low-end model that felt more like a token gesture than a real camera.
Pros: Small and light enough to appeal to fans of compacts. Very fast and accurate autofocus---one of the best AFs we've seen. Excellent electronic viewfinder and touchscreen for easy and comfortable compositions
Cons: Lacks fast native lenses. There's a lens adaptor, but it costs another $200. Viewfinder blackout is pronounced. No 4K video, which feels odd in 2017

3.5
Verdict: It's fair to say we've been highly critical of Canon 's compact system camera EOS M line. For a simple reason, though: the Japanese company's mirrorless cameras simply haven't been able to stand up to the competition.
Pros: Small size, big step forward for EOS M series, fast autofocus setup (finally), decent viewfinder and touchscreen combination, access to lots of lenses (via adapter
Cons: Battery depletion issues, autofocus setup can't compete with the best mirrorless cameras out there, high ISO sensitivity shows off image noise, no 4K video, expensive compared to competition

Canon EOS M5 Camera Review: Nice Design With Some Rough Edges

3.5
Verdict: Canon's EOS M cameras have been something of a disappointment, failing to translate the company's expertise at making DSLRs into the mirrorless camera market. But the M5 shows that Canon is getting there: This camera has many of the benefits of its larger DSLR cousins (image quality, ease of...
Pros: DSLR-like controls, Can use EF-S lenses with optional adapter, Compact size
Cons: No 4K video, Disappointing image and video quality in low light, Awkward video-shutter placement makes for bumpy video starts
