I actually like the EOS M footage. It is stunning to my eyes, even in 27 inch computer screen full mode.
This is not scientific. Because Youtube may have more severe compression. But you get a feeling, since Alexa is more about hdr and color science but not on resolution.

This kind of footage can be shot by 5D3 ML easily.

I am more impressed by IDA ML 's EOS M ML footage than Arri Alexa's. Just personal feeling.
I think that ML makes EOS M 700D/650D 5D3 to the level of the best 2k to 4k cameras available in the past and now.

Arri Alexa is a dilemma now.
If used in controlled environment, lighting can be adjusted to lower the hdr and gels can be used to get different colors. Alexa is not critically needed.
If used in uncontrolled news shooting run-u-gun environment, Alexa is too unwielding, even the Amira.
Arri Alexa was acclaimed due to several major camera shoot out tests happened in 2010 2011 2012. Those test environments emphasized on extreme scenarios that hdr is the single most important criteria. Even Sony F35 and Red One/Epic failed. In reality, Both are nice cameras.

R3 is getting really good now. No overheating issue. 6K raw 60 fps. 4k oversampled raw 120 fps.
The only gripe is that no video specific features such as false color, waveform, zebra, etc like those in ML global draw.

nikon z9 beats r3.
waveform in camera!

shorter flange distance, better dr, equal af, equal sensor, better video, better lenses. let's see if z9 ii has an ibis equal to olympus om1. then i will jump the boat. More important to video, less rolling shutter, zebra, focus peaking, waveform, and audio indicator, attenuator, etc.

Canon R1 LEAKED & it DESTROYS the Sony a1!

Global shutter!
86 mp!
12k raw video?

Leaked 06.03.2021, CR0 rating and never been heard from again. Which seems to make its rating a negative number.
Why posting this debunked-by-time stuff?

Magic lantern and Arri cameras are very similar. Both record enencrypted and uncompressed/lossless raw.

In my opinion an Alexa is just your Canon +
- Lower noise (aka more dynamic range)
- Much less rolling shutter
- More resolution (up to 3424 x 2202)
- Less moire issues
- Mildly different colour response - this makes almost ZERO difference, compared to the way you processs the footage, that's where the colour difference happens, no camera sensor has special colour

So work within your camera's limitations, and most importantly learn the craft (instead of wasting time watching gear videos).
