I have the EOS M6 and absolutely love it. The M5 is a bit larger as it has a viewfinder, but other than that the two cameras are very similar.

Even though the eos m line doesn't have a lot of lenses, the ones available are absolute gems. The 22mm f2 really sealed the deal for me vs a cometing mirrorless system. I got that lens for only $150 used. Incredible value. The 11-22 is another gem. Super sharp, small, and has IS. It's good enough that I sold my Nikon 18-35G for my D750. The 18-150mm that I have is another surprisingly good lens.

Between those 3 lenses, my current needs are met, but I'd still like Canon to release new lenses for this great, but somewhat neglected system. The Canon eos line has so much potential.

Hi, I am thinking of selling my D750 kit in favor of something lighter. I have grown older and its now harder for me to carry my gear and hike. For most part I am happy with the photos from my Samsung S8+ camera but I would still want to have a nice dedicated camera with interchangeable lens, I looked at the mirror less tried a cheaper panasonic and I was like my cellphone takes better photos than the m4/3 camera. I don't want to spend $1000 on a M4/3 which takes worse photos than a mobile phone.

What do you suggest, which camera and lenses should I start looking at.

A Fuji or a Sony the particular model would depend on your budget and needs

If you don't need a viewfinder, I suggest the M6 with the lenses I mentioned. I bought the international version body for $600, 22mm for $150 (new, not used as I had stated), 11-22 for $315 like new, and 18-150 for $350 new, all on e bay. This system is so much smaller than my D750 + big heavy lenses. I'm keeping my D750 for portraits and fast action shots, but the M6 goes everywhere with me. Witg the 22mm pancake lens, it's small enough that it's almost pocketable. Incredible for an aps-c interchangeable lens camera.

yes i like the d750 no doubt, but even in my simplest setup with the 28-300 mm its pretty heavy, i do carry a ultra wide and a macro along and everything makes the bag so heavy.

I have the 28-300. Great lens, but at over 2lbs, it's not really a great walk around lens as the focal range would indicate. That is where the 18-150mm fits in nicely. It's roughly equivalent to a 28 to 240mm on a full frame, so it works as a good replacement for my 28-300 at a fraction of the weight and size.

I considered m43 camera systems before buying the m6, but good/bright lenses for m43 that help compensate for the smaller sensor are just too expensive, so I couldn't justify moving to m43.

I don't think there is a m43 camera ever made that would take worse photos then a cell phone mate.

I switched to the m43 due to size. Was missing too much with my Canon for daily activities due to size of equipment. Now with the m43 I can take it along with me everywhere. Its just so light.

On the short end they do got quite a few nice prime. I do agree with you that their range zoom lens is a tad expensive for the nicer one. When I do need those I still pickup my Canon, but not much any other use due to the size.

I did look at the eos m but they were still too big for portability compared to m43.

Clearly you don't have much experience with M43 cameras. Go check out the original 12MP M43 Cameras. Grab one of them, say a GF2, and take a picture at night or otherwise in low light. Then grab a cell phone with a good camera. Take the same picture at night. There's a winner. It's not the M43.

M43 didn't become serious until Olympus started using the 16MP Sony sensors. Having been in M43 from the start. Even 5 years ago, I deemed my 12MP bodies to be unusable. They were horrible in low light. Worse than a cheap compact camera.

Posts claiming a smartphone is better than Micro 4/3 for photos are delusional. Just by simple physics, the Micro 4/3 sensor is like 9x the surface area of the Galaxy S8 sensor.

One thing I have noticed is that many EF and EF-S lenses perform as good as native on when adapted to EF-M mount. I believe this is because EF(-S) lenses, although physically different, are electronically native to EF-M. This gives EF-M an advantage over A-mount as A to E-mount needs a translation which is why Sony needed to build a new mount system from the ground up.
I would not be surprised if this is the reason Canon has not putting too much effort into creating more physically native EF-M lenses.

Canon has really missed a big marketing opportunity by not pushing EF(-S) working very well on EOS M system and including an adapter with the camera.

I agree 100 percent. While high end cell phones do take incredible pictures for what they are, there is no comparison to a 4/3. I think what happens is people marvel at the quality of thier pictures on there cell phone screens and do not usually blow them up to 8x10 photo or on a high end monitor that really show off a cell phones flaws. Plus the post processing on there cell phones and ease of custom photo settings let's people with little knowledge take nice photos with thier phones.
