If you want/need an EVF, the M5 is also on sale for about 100-120 more depending on lens.

Would you say this is about similar to a Sony A6000 with touchscreen but minus EVF?

Similar level for general / low end user. Canon M5/M6 have a flip able LCD which is useful for VLOG / selfie. A6000 have 4K video.

Nope. A6000 is only 1920*1080 also. All the other a6*00 series can do 4k. (but definitely agree the canon tilt viewfinder is great)

Thanks for clarification. I mix up A6000 with A6x00 which all have 4K video except the original A6000.

I mentioned this in the M5 thread also. I owned the original M which was horribly slow. Bought the M6 thinking it surely must be faster being many generations newer. It really isn't much better unfortunately. Very sluggish working with this camera. Can't keep up with kids or animals or anything that requires fast focusing and firing etc. I'm going to wait for the M6 II to come down in price as that one finally seems to approach the performance I'm looking for. Not saying this is a bad deal, but know what you are getting.

Thank you so much for this. I have the original M too and was thinking of getting this, with high hopes that you could finally shoot kids or sports. I guess not!

Yes, thank you for saying this. I've been looking for a starter camera to catch marching band shots so the kids are far away and constantly moving. I can't seem to find a good camera without spending a ton of money. Anyone have suggestions?

I don't think you will have issues with the M6 capturing marching band shots in daylight. Focus speed issues on the M series typically come into play in fast action sports and indoor/poor lighting.

Thank you. Sorry, I should have added in that I'd need a camera that will take night shots with bright overhead lighting as well (they compete at night). I will also will need it for dark auditoriums for concert band.

I would stay far away unless you are talking about stationary birds in bright sunlight.
