Like the M3 the M5 will soon or later run chdk. Just check the menus and you will see for yourself. The firmware isn't based upon dslr code so porting to chdk is much easier:

Not really. That's a s35 APS-C camera, not a small chip m43s camera (and a speedbooster is not in the equation for this price bracket, and it doesn't save the poor 800+ ISO performance.)

It also has the only working AF system in the world. So will get many shots all around the world the g80 simply cannot.

A lot of us, both experienced filmmakers and hobbyiests alike, that would take good looking 1080p video over 4K video and pull focus manually.

The m5 24mp APS-C chip has a LOT more DR than the m43s 16mp chip. And video at 6400 ISO is equivalent to 1600 on the GH4. So in video you enjoy at least 2 stops of lowlight performance and in still 2 stops of DR, more resolution and better AF.

Plus, Panasonic over-sharpened 4k video will always look like panasonic over-sharpened 4K video, and Canon organic motion and colour will always look like organic motion and colours.

G80 is a GREAT camera. But I'd never use one without a SB as I despise the m43s 2.3x crop that made me sell the GH4, just cannot accept it as a filmmaker in aesthetic, it just lacks that LIFE. A Metabones EF SB with vintage soft M42 glass makes the magic appear, but too much money, too many adapters. G80 is a Great camera but not ULTIMATELY ''better' than an M5 that we still haven't handeled how the damn thing shoots and plays with the photographer/videographer.

Agreed.
I'm a bit confused. As far as I know, you never owned GH4 - link: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=30754.msg622515#msg622515

Specs are good, but in real world: http://www.eoshd.com/comments/topic/20979-warning-about-panasonic-g8580-lens/?do=findComment&comment=167109.

Just thought I'd add my $0.02 to the discussion. Remember when the EOSM was introduced mid 2012 and there were only two lenses available. It seemed that Canon wasn't at all interested in the mirrorless market. A few years later this mirrorless camera is the first to sport a Digic 7 processor and several new EF-M lenses have been introduced by Canon and other lens makers.



Like other recent Canon products as it isn't as impressive as the competition but the mirrorless evolution is definitely moving forward.

The first one was Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II.
Now we are sure EOS M5 is not EOS. It's one more PowerShot. So wellcome to CHDK forum...

It only took Canon 4 years to show that it cares though.

Too bad M3/M5 are not really EOS.

Right, I should have said the first interchangeable lens mirrorless Canon camera or the first to have EOS stamped on the body. EOS just means "Electro-Optical System" which sounds rather generic to me. What digital camera isn't an Electro-Optical System?

Didn't Magic Lantern originally build off of CHDK, which stands for "Canon Hack Development Kit" ?

There's a saying that we use in the film industry when we finish shooting a take and need to reset everything for the next take:

Back to one!

In any case, I was simply pointing out that the M1 seemed to be the guts of a DSLR crammed into a little body while the M5 seems to be ahead of the DSLR development.

http://builds.magiclantern.fm/ -> under "Your camera is not listed?"
There should be writen: "most of Canon EOS M cameras (M3, M5, M10) are based on PowerShot firmware"  :)
There are two cameras with CHDK vs. one with ML.

EOS M5 internals - there is no ADTG chip

M2 is also EOS (but still, 3 PowerShots vs 2 EOS).

There is no working port for M2, unlike M10
2 vs 1  :)
