ef mount?
EF-M 28/3.5 is a native macro lens with built-in ring light, very compact, good IQ, well affordable.
Otherwise EF-S 60/2.8 is a great macro lens with nice FL [FOV eq. to 96mm], works well on my EOS M with EF/EF-M adapter and is still acceptably compact.
And all EF 100mm/2.8 Macro lenses will also work via adapter. 100L is an excellent macro lens.

I would very suspicious of any camera created "immediately".

On the other hand, it would not surprise me if M6 II were the mirrorless equivalent of 90D.
nope. no viewfinder. What "we" (some of us) are waiting for is a KILLER EOS M5 II, every bit as good as a (not coming) EOS 7D III should have been. But priced at 999. ;-)

It will be interesting to see what Canon delivers in this round and the next R series. I have stayed with Canon because of reliability, incredible lenses, and support (CPS). Basically, the entire eco-system rather than just one component. I do believe that Canon has fallen behind the times with bodies and would like to have advantages like faster frame rates, accurate Eye tracking for both humans / animals, high resolution / fast refresh EVF, improved sensors and other technologies that have been implemented. I was really hoping for an M5 II that would clean up all of the things I don't like about the original M5 - mainly performance and AF. I am not sure I would give up my 1dx II and big lenses, but the X-T3 is calling me as a higher end replacement for the M5. Yes, I know they are not considered in the same class for comparison, but I like the performance and portability of the X-T3. I would have already purchased a A9 or similar with adapted lenses if AF performance for wildlife was not an issue. To the answer of the "or what" post above, you vote with your dollars.
